Have you recently experienced severe tooth pain and discomfort as a result of lingering tooth infection? Does this unpleasant sensation intensify throughout the day, preventing you from eating properly?
If so, root canal treatment can help remove discomfort, eliminate the source of the pain and save the infected tooth.
Even when it’s mild, tooth pain can still prevent you from focusing at work and enjoying daily life. Although many people tend to ignore the tell-tale signs of tooth infection, you shouldn’t wait for things to get worse before you seek treatment.
When ignored, tooth inflammation or infection can lead to tooth loss, so you should book an appointment for root canal treatment quickly after experiencing your first severe pain episode.
- There are many causes behind tooth inflammation and infection, such as severe decay, cracking or chipping, and repeated dental procedures on the tooth.
- During the procedure we will remove the nerve and pulp, clean and disinfect the canal and seal it using a temporary cover material.
- Root canal treatment is not painful. While this may have been true in the past, modern treatment methods are safe and painless.
- We help you keep your smile in check by carrying out an extensive endodontic treatment that facilitates pain relief and allows you to restore your dental health.
When is root canal treatment needed?
The inflammation or infection of the root canal may be caused by tooth decay, tooth cracks or other damage or trauma.
While it’s necessary to get checked by a dentist in order to conclude whether an endodontic procedure is required or you are dealing with other dental issues, there are some symptoms that might indicate this is the treatment you need at the moment.
Prolonged sensitivity to cold or heat, extensive pain, tenderness to touch or to chewing, darkening of the tooth, a spot on the gum and swelling are the most frequently encountered symptoms.
If you have noticed any of these signs, schedule an appointment with our root canal dentist to address the cause of the pain as soon as possible.
