Root Canal Treatment in

Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp (soft tissue inside your teeth containing blood vessels and nerves) becomes inflamed or diseased. During root canal treatment, your dentist removes the diseased pulp.

The pulp chamber and canals of the tooth are then cleaned and sealed. If the infected pulp is not removed, pain and swelling can result, and your tooth may have to be removed.

Causes of an infected pulp could include:

  • A deep cavity or restoration
  • A cracked or broken tooth
  • Trauma to the tooth

Signs You Need Root Canal Treatment

Here are some of the symptoms that indicate you need to undergo root canal treatment:

  • Sudden toothache when consuming hot or cold foods
  • Moderate to intense tooth pain
  • Loosening of tooth
  • Swelling on gums, which may release blood or pus when pressed
  • Pain spreads from tooth to other regions of the jaw or head

The Procedure

The procedure of root canal treatment involves removal of the infected nerve and pulp, as well as cleaning and sealing the inside of the tooth. The procedure normally requires two to three dental visits. Once your tooth is completely clean from the bacteria and infection, your dentist will then seal and restore the tooth using a dental crown.

Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. If you continue to care for your teeth and gums your root canal treated tooth could last a lifetime.

However, a tooth without its nerve can still develop cavities leading to root canal failure, so regular checkups are needed in order to save your tooth and your smile. Root canal treatment is a highly successful dental procedure with a 95% success rate.
