Do You Need Root Canal Therapy?
A root canal today could save you thousands of dollars in tooth replacement costs tomorrow. Many patients dismiss certain symptoms as if they aren’t big problems. Below are possible signs that a root canal is in your near future:
- An abscess (or pimple) on the gums.
- Sensitivity to hold and cold.
- Severe toothache pain.
- Swelling and/or tenderness.
- Sometimes no symptoms are present.
- Decay has reached the tooth pulp (living tissue inside of the tooth).
- Infection or abscess have developed inside the tooth or at the root tip.
- Injury or trauma to the tooth.
What Does Root Canal Therapy Involve?
Usually completed in one or more appointments, it can be performed by a dentist or endodontist. During your first appointment, the problem tooth is numbed and a rubber damn is placed around the tooth to keep it dry. An access opening is made on top of the tooth and a series of root canal files are placed into the opening, one at a time, removing the pulp, nerve tissue, and bacteria. Once the tooth is thoroughly cleaned, it’s sealed with either a permanent or temporary filling.
At your next appointment, the roots and inside of the cavity will be filled and sealed with special dental materials. A filling is placed to cover the opening on top of the tooth. This will protect the tooth and prevent it from breaking, and restore it to its full function. Your tooth sensitivity and toothache(s) disappear immediately. You can finally enjoy the comfort you deserve!
