The teeth have one, two or three roots depending on their type. Each tooth consists of a root canal and pulp that contains various blood vessels, nerves, and tissues. When the infection reaches the nerve and root of the tooth, the root canal is prescribed to preserve it. If the decayed tooth is not treated on time, the enamel and crown of the tooth will eventually become involved. This level of decay results in severe swelling and pain. In addition to decay, other factors such as a history of a sudden trauma, extensive and old dental fillings, tooth fracture, severe abrasion, and advanced gum disease are effective in the development of pulp disease. It is best to do root canal treatment in the specific and complex conditions on the supervision of an endodontic specialist.
Before the root canal treatment, the dentist will ask about the patient medical history and all medicines and supplements he/she is consuming. Some drugs and supplements should be avoided before the root canal procedures under the supervision of the dentist. In most cases, the root canal treatment is done under local anesthesia only, although this surgery can be performed under general anesthesia. Sometimes this treatment can be done without using anesthesia at all, this is in case the tooth has lost its vitality (as a result of nerve damage, there is no feeling of pain or any other feeling). Before performing the root canal treatment, X-ray imaging of teeth must be taken and in some cases, special imaging (panoramic image) is required to accurately determine the extent of the damage. In healthy people, there is no need for other special checks. But patients who are more at risk of endocarditis, such as people with artificial valves and others, must inform the dentist so that he or she will be given a dose of antibiotics before treatment. People suffering from disorders of blood clotting may be asked to perform a blood test to check the functions of coagulation before surgery, so they are susceptible to bleeding.
