Have your teeth been sensitive to hot and cold temperatures or have you noticed swelling in your gums? If so, it is important that you have this discomfort diagnosed. If a tooth or some teeth have started to decay, infection could spread to the root of the tooth or to other teeth. You could also experience other health problems as a result of issues with your teeth.
Endodontic treatment, also known as ‘root canal therapy,’ can help you save your natural teeth when the nerve or the pulp of a tooth becomes infected or damaged. Contrary to common misguided notions, root canals do not have to be uncomfortable. According to a survey conducted by the American Association of Endodontics, patients who have undergone a root canal treatment describe the treatment as “painless” six times more than those who haven’t had the treatment.
During a root canal procedure, the nerve and infected tissue are removed from the tooth and replaced with a material that seals out infection-causing bacteria. The tooth is reconstructed and fitted with a crown.
