“Root Canal Treatment Is Carried Out When The Pulp (Nerve) Is Either Inflamed Or Dead”
The pulp is a tissue made up of a combination of connective tissue, nerves, and blood vessels. We address the causes as well as the symptoms with our root canal treatment.
The primary cause of the inflammation is bacteria contaminating the pulp due to tooth decay or trauma.
Symptoms that indicate the need for root canal therapy:
Moderate to severe lingering tooth ache when having hot or cold foods.
Toothache pain so intense that it wakes you up at night.
Pain when chewing or biting
Swelling on your gum, which when pressed may release blood or pus.
Pain that starts in one tooth and spreads to other regions of the jaw or head, eg, an infected lower molar may cause you to feel pain in the ear.
Sometimes, however, there may be no symptoms.
The purpose of root canal treatment:
Is to remove the inflamed tissue and bacteria inside the root canal, allowing the surrounding tissues to heal.
If properly performed and under normal circumstances, a root canal treated tooth can last you a lifetime.
