What Is root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment, often referred to as endodontic therapy, is a procedure designed to address issues within the innermost part of a tooth, known as the pulp. The pulp houses nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues. When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, trauma, or repeated dental procedures, a root canal becomes necessary to save the tooth.
Key aspects of root canal treatment
Pain relief: Contrary to common misconceptions, root canal treatment is performed to alleviate pain rather than cause it. The procedure is conducted under local anaesthesia to ensure a pain-free experience.
Preservation of natural teeth: Root canal treatment aims to save and preserve natural teeth that would otherwise need extraction due to severe infection or damage. This contributes to maintaining the integrity of your natural smile.
Elimination of infection: The infected or inflamed pulp is carefully removed during the procedure, and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed to prevent further infection.
Strengthening and restoration: Following the removal of the compromised pulp, the tooth is strengthened with a crown or filling, restoring its structure and functionality. This ensures that the treated tooth can withstand normal biting forces.
Signs you may need a root canal treatment
- Severe toothache, especially when chewing or applying pressure.
- Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures.
- Swollen, tender gums near the affected tooth.
- Darkening or discolouration of the tooth.Pimple on the gums, indicating a dental abscess.
