Root canal treatment is a medical treatment used to eliminate tooth infection. This procedure can also keep the tooth from future infection. The dentist will remove the tooth pulp inside the tooth root canal.
If pulpitis is not treated early on, it can result in complications such as infection of the jaw bone, cardiovascular and pulmonary problems, among others.
Gingivitis is a reversible form of gum disease. Affecting only the attached and free gingival tissue that surrounds your teeth, bacteria that invades the area below your gumline, known as the sulcus or periodontal pocket, causes gingivitis to develop and eventually manifest into periodontitis, if left untreated.
