What happens if you leave a deep cavity in your mouth?

August 8, 2017

 

When a patient has a deep cavity, the dentist hopes to be able to fill the cavity without the need for root canal. In Tooth Port Dental, Dr. Tarik Awad always uses liner and pulp protection to allow the nerve to recover. In order to understand how a cavity affects the tooth, we need to have a basic understanding of its anatomy. A tooth is composed of several layers. The outermost layer (above the gum-line) is called the enamel. Enamel is the hardest in the body. Under the enamel is the dentin. The dentin is about as hard as bone, and, unlike the enamel, dentin contains nerve endings. Beneath the dentin is a vascular tissue called the dental pulp. Unfortunately, a deep cavity increases the chance that the tooth will require root canal therapy. The reason is that a cavity is actually a bacterial infection of the tooth, and if bacterial reaches the dental pulp, a root canal is usually required

 

With regular check-up and diagnostic x-rays, we will be able to diagnose and restore before they develop to root canal infection, call us now and schedule your appointment (705) 516-8000 or come and see us at 17 king st, Angus, ON
