If you wish to enhance your oral health in the future, it is important to make sure that you deal with any oral ailments including pulp damage. Pulp damage occurs when the inner workings of a tooth that has the blood vessels, connective tissues, and nerves are damaged or diseased. If the pulp is damaged and infected, it will need to be removed with a treatment such as a root canal therapy.
If you are afraid of what can happen to a tooth that has an infected pulp, it typically leads to tooth death. However, through the use of an endodontic treatment such as a root canal therapy, it may be possible to remove the pulp and save the tooth. However, your best line of defense is being aware of what causes infected pulps and taking the necessary steps to prevent them. If you have suffered any kind of deep cavities, it will lead to an increased risk for pulp death.
When you have suffered repeated dental procedures that have left a tooth vulnerable to wear and tear, a pulp infection can arise. This is because the slow wear and decay of your tooth enamel can leave holes in which bacteria can seep into the tooth and cause microscopic damage. If pulp infection should occur, a root canal therapy will be needed.
