Root Canal Treatments
What is a Root canal treatment?
Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. Sometimes, there is trauma to the tooth or an incomplete fracture which would also need a root canal treatment. In order to save the tooth, the infected nerve, bacteria and any decay is removed and the remaining space is filled with a biocompatible material.
A root canal treatment is done on a tooth as a last resort to save it that would otherwise be removed.
Do I need a root canal treatment?
Please watch out for the following signs to know that a root canal treatment is needed.
- An abscess (or pimple) on the gums.
- Sensitivity to hot and cold.
- Severe toothache pain.
- Swelling and/or tenderness
Sometimes there are no symptoms present. This is because the decay has silently spread close to the nerve or has already damaged the nerve.
