What situations require root canal treatment?

What situations require root canal treatment?

Recently, a patient asked: What situations require root canal treatment? All lesions and problems that affect or come into contact with the inside of the tooth, such as the dental nerve, dental pulp, root tip, etc., generally require root canal treatment. Because the dental nerve and other tissues are relatively special and sensitive, if problems arise, they cannot be left in place, which will affect the to the entire tooth, so be sure to receive timely treatment. Common ones include acute and chronic pulpitis, apical periodontitis, severe tooth decay, tooth wedge-shaped defects, tooth fractures or large-area defects.

Instead of worrying about what will happen if your teeth don’t have dental nerves, it’s better to do oral hygiene early, protect every tooth, and prevent tooth decay.


Experts remind that without the dental nerve, the tooth loses feeling, but it can still be used. However, this does not mean that the dental nerve is useless, and it must be removed as a last resort.

When dealing with problems, we must consider the long term, start from the root of the problem, find out and solve the root cause, and then we can completely solve the problem. For problems within the teeth, we must start with the treatment of the tooth nerve.
