Tooth decay, trauma to the tooth, cracks and chips or failed dental procedures can cause infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Some of the symptoms of pulp infection include swelling of the gums, tooth ache and sensitivity to hot or cold temperature. Root canal therapy is performed to save the tooth, the pulp and nerves. The treatment involves removing bacteria and any decay. The resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, restoring the tooth to its full function.
