Modern Root Canal Treatments are virtually painless!!
It is rather one of the most vital treatments to secure the natural teeth against conditions like tooth decay, incorrect crowns, repeated dental procedures, or a creak or chip in the tooth. Root Canal Therapy also known as endodontic therapy, is performed to eliminate pain. The procedure is performed when the nerve or blood supply to the tooth is infected.
Signs of Root Canal:
- Serious teeth pain when eating or when you put pressure on the area.
- Tooth pain and sensitivity to hot or cold that lingers after the hot or cold stimuli have been removed.
- A small sinus on the gums (pimple-like bump) near the area of tooth pain.
- Darkening of the tooth
A root canal is a major procedure, so pain after a root canal is normal. A root canal involves deep cleaning inside the canals (pulp chamber of the root) of the tooth which can in turn irritate surrounding nerves and the gums. It is normal to experience mild to moderate pain for a few days after root canal.
These days most root canal treatment can be successfully completed by a dentist in a single day. In certain cases of serious infections or black tooth, a dentist may give 2-3 days appointment for finishing the treatment.
Crowns are generally advised by dentist especially in posterior premolar (a molar tooth that contributes in the chewing of food because the tooth becomes brittle in nature post root canal treatment.
