Spotlight on Dental Pulp Damage

Practicing good oral hygiene and seeing a dentist for dental cleanings and exams make up a smart and effective oral health care routine. This is because taking these steps helps prevent decay and disease from developing in your mouth. When a cavity does occur, a hole forms in the enamel, which can allow bacteria to get inside of the tooth where it doesn’t belong. When this happens, the bacteria can infect a part of the tooth called the dental pulp.

Dental pulp is the soft tissue inside of a tooth containing blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. Before the root canal procedure was developed, a patient with dental pulp damage would need to have the tooth pulled to relieve the pain and prevent the infection from spreading. Today, root canal therapy gives dentists a way to treat an infection of the dental pulp while saving the patient’s natural tooth.
