Many people associate root canal treatment with pain and discomfort. This shouldn’t be the case! While a root canal treatment can be uncomfortable for some, overall it should be painless and instead treats the pain of an existing infection. Root canal treatment is performed to treat infection in the centre of the tooth (the root canal system). Infection stems from bacteria that can result from any trauma to the tooth, tooth decay, or leaks in fillings. Tooth infections can be quite painful and as soon as you notice any symptoms you should have it treated as soon as possible before it spreads or worsens.

When you have a severely damaged or infected tooth, and you are at risk of losing your natural tooth, root canal treatment can help to prevent further damage and restore the function of the tooth. Many dentists recommend a crown to seal the tooth and strengthen its structure after a successful root canal.

That said, the root canal procedure involves drilling into your tooth to remove the infected or damaged area, following a deep cavity or cracked tooth. The pulp, which contains the nerves and blood vessels, is removed, and the remaining tooth cavity cleaned and disinfected before it can be filled and sealed. Before treatment, the tooth is usually in a vulnerable state. Reasons to Add a Crown…

There’s a strong correlation between ear pain and the need for a root canal because our ears and mouth are so closely connected. There is a good chance that the source of the earache you’re experiencing is actually a toothache. It’s just that the pain is harshly radiating to nearby regions. What causes this pain? When a tooth becomes badly damaged it begins to hurt. The pain can be so great that it circulates to areas nearby which is why it feels like an earache when in fact, it’s a toothache.

By keeping your natural tooth, you can avoid the need for an artificial tooth, keep the alignment of your teeth, and prevent issues with your jaw. To maintain proper functioning, your tooth does not necessarily need it’s nerve, so the removal through a root canal will not cause any significant damage or loss of functionality. The procedure of a root canal can be done in one or several visits to your dentist. First, you will be given a local anesthetic to numb the infected area. Next, a rubber dam may be place surrounding the area so that bacteria is kept away. Then, a hole will be made in the tooth to access the root canal. Once the damaged area can be reached,…
