Is a Root Canal Safe When You Have Gum Disease?
Posted on 11/25/2018 by ROOT™ Periodontal and Implant Center
No one wants to find out that they have gum disease. No one is happy when they hear they need to have a root canal. These conditions make people think the worse. They imagine pain and other problems because of these issues. They worry about how they can treat the problems. But what if they have gum disease and then are told they need a root canal. They now start to worry if it is safe to have the root canal while also dealing with gum disease. Why It Can Cause a ProblemBefore deciding whether it is safe to have a root canal while treating gum disease, it is important to think about why it could cause problems. Is it possible that the infected tooth led to the gum disease or is the gum disease the cause of the infected tooth? Answering that question can help determine whether the idea of having a root canal is the right choice. If the infected tooth led to problems with the gums, it is possible to try to save the tooth with a root canal procedure. Cleaning out the infection can make it easier to treat the gum disease and restore the health of both the tooth and the gums. Problems can arise when the gum disease caused the infected tooth. The gum disease could cause too much bone loss. A root canal is not always possible due to the bone loss. In some case, removing the tooth may offer the best chance to restore the health of the gums. How to DecideIf there are times when a root canal is safe and times when it is not the right choice, how can a person decide? The key to treating both the problems of gum disease and an infection requiring a root canal is early detection. The sooner you recognize the problems, the easier it is to treat them. It also makes it safer to do the root canal while also treating the gum disease. For more information about this and other oral health issues, contact our office today....
