Enhance Your Smile Through Effective and Pain Free Root Canal Treatment


Pain and tenderness in your tooth and prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold foods are tell-tale signs that you may need root canal treatment. If you’ve been experiencing these symptoms along with some swelling in your lymph nodes and nearby bone/gum tissues, it may be high time to talk to your dentist about an endodontic treatment. It is one of the most effective methods of saving and restoring damaged teeth and relieving tooth pain.


Every year, millions of teeth undergo endodontic treatment and among the most commonly performed inside-of-the-tooth procedures people go through is root canal. Endodontic treatment becomes necessary with the soft tissue inside the root canal, otherwise known as the pulp, becomes infected or inflamed. Infection and inflammation can be caused by a variety of things, such as repeated dental procedures on the painful tooth deep decay, or a chip or crack in the tooth. Pulp damage may also be caused by an injury to the tooth, even when there are no visible cracks or chips. Left untreated, the infection can cause painful episodes or even lead to abscesses.


In a root canal treatment, tooth is saved as the inflamed and/or infected pulp is removed by carefully cleaning and shaping the insides of the root canal and then filling and sealing the space. To restore the tooth to its full function as well as to protect the treated area from further damage, a crown or some other appliance may also be installed to complete the treatment. Root canal treatment is a highly effective restorative treatment, which not only helps relieve pain and sensitivity to teeth, but also helps to restore the damaged toot to its normal functions. It is a highly recommended treatment option for pain caused by pulp damage. Unfortunately, some teeth may have inaccessible root canals, requiring other procedures for successful treatment.
