Should You Get A Root Canal Therapy?

Should You Get A Root Canal Therapy?

Even after getting the recommendation from the dentist for a root canal therapy, many patients are hesitant about this treatment and the reason is the myth that it is a highly painful treatment. But, the fact is that it is no more painful than having a filling placed in your dental line. The treatment is stated as painful because the patient experiences pain that comes from the dental infection that needs this treatment.

What is root canal therapy?

This is a dental treatment for preserving a natural tooth that is decayed badly because of infection. Generally, dentists recommend this treatment when the patients’ pulp or nerve in the tooth is affected. Sometimes, the infection may happen to non-infected teeth due to the decay of the nearby tooth. It can also be caused due to some sort of injury to the face, chipped or cracked teeth and even due to repeated dental procedures done of the dental line.

What to expect during the procedure?

The root canal procedure generally involves removal of the infected pulp or nerve. This work will be followed by cleaning of debris and once this work is also completed your dentist will seal the tooth. Some dentists do all these works in the same day, while some dentists may give appointment on a later date for sealing the tooth. However, in the latter case, the dentist will cover the tooth with a temporary filling to keep it away from contaminants. Furthermore, to protect the tooth from breaking, a crowning or capping may be suggested. Once all these procedures are completed.

Will the removal of nerves affect my oral line?

No, the reason is that once the tooth grows on the gum and the important point to remember here is that they are just meant for providing sensation to cold and hot substances. So, their removal does not in any way affect the functionality of the dental line.

Why root canal treatment?

Damage to the nerve tissue and pulp can cause breaking down of tissue and when they are chamber, bacteria begin to thrive. Pulp is nothing, but the soft area that is present in between one tooth and another. The roots of the oral line have root canals, wherein the nerves are present. These canals travel from the root to the tooth into the pulp chamber that has tissues and blood vessels that provide nourishment to the tooth in general. When bacteria begin to develop within the pulp chamber, it will lead to severe infection, thereby resulting in bone loss around the tissue. This will lead to swelling and drainage problems as well and the same will run into the face and neck. In short, root canal therapy can help in restoring the dental like back to its proper functioning.

Signs that show that a patient needs root canal treatment:

• Severe pain in the dental line when pressure is applied or even when food is chewed.

• When there is an increase in the sensitivity in the dental line as and when you take something hot or cold.

• When there is discoloration of a particular tooth

• When there is pimple appearance on the gums very frequently

• When there is tenderness and swelling in the nearby gums.
