Is your tooth hurting due to an infection, cavity, or inflamed nerves?
A root canal treatment may be able to ease your discomfort.
What is a Root Canal?
The root canal system exists inside the hard layer of teeth. The soft pulp along with a network of nerves and blood vessels make a sensitive area. The health of the pulp can be compromised due to an accident or if you don’t follow proper oral hygiene. The heard layer of the teeth can get fractured, exposing the soft pulp.
Ultimately, your tooth starts to decay and becomes inflamed, resulting in sensitivity issues when you eat hot or cold food. As a result, you feel excruciating pain and discomfort.
What is a Root Canal Procedure?
Root canal treatment aims to remove bacteria from the infected root canal to save the natural tooth and prevent further decay. The idea is to keep the basic structure of the natural tooth intact while eliminating the infection.
The root canal procedure begins with sedation or local anesthesia. While its effect lasts for about a couple of hours, the dentist removes the infected or dead pulp and seals the area using special tools. Sometimes, it is topped with a filling, if necessary.
After getting a root canal, you might need to have a crown placed over the tooth to prevent a fracture.
