Root Canal Treatment 

Root Canal Treatment Has Come a Long Way

You Don’t Have To Be Afraid Any More

Root canal treatment is used to restore and save a tooth that is infected or badly decayed. It is performed when the pulp in the tooth is damaged or becomes infected. During the treatment, the pulp is taken out and the interior of the tooth is cleaned and then sealed.

When Is Root Canal Treatment Needed?

While in some cases no symptoms are present, some indications you may need root canal treatment include:

  • Severe toothache pain when chewing;
  • Prolonged sensitivity or pain to cold or hot temperatures after the source of the cold or heat has been removed;
  • Inflamed nerves;
  • Chipped or cracked teeth;
  • Previous treatment was unsuccessful;
  • Tenderness and swelling in adjacent gums;
  • A recurring or persistent pimple on the gums;
  • Discomfort that ranges from slight to extreme around the infected tooth;
  • Darkening of the tooth.

Dispelling the Fear of Root Canal Treatment

When one thinks of the words ‘root canal treatment’ most dental patients immediately experience feelings of fear. Many people still have an old-fashioned opinion that it’s an uncomfortable and painful experience. But innovations in the field of dentistry have simplified the procedure; in fact, many root canals now don’t take much longer than a routine check-up.

Putting an end to this perception is important because root canal treatment is often the best way to save a natural tooth, making it the preferred method over extraction. It provides long-term benefits that can improve a person’s quality of life.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment provides benefits that outperform and outlast when compared with a tooth extraction. And while there have been considerable advances in dental implants, there is still not one that can outperform a natural tooth.

 By saving the natural tooth, patients enjoy benefits including: 

  • Better chewing;
  • More normal biting power;
  • Natural look;
  • No need for ongoing corrective dental work.

The bottom line is that root canal treatment should always be the first choice when treating an infected tooth. And by getting expert care at the earliest stage of infection, patients will increase the likelihood of the results lasting a lifetime.
