A root canal is a dental procedure that is done when the inside of a tooth becomes infected or inflamed. This can happen due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, or trauma to the tooth. During the procedure, we will remove the damaged or infected tissue from the inside of the tooth, disinfect the area, and then fill it with a special material. You can expect to be numb during the procedure and may experience some discomfort afterward, but your Lykke professional will provide you with pain medication to help manage any pain. Remember, a root canal can save your tooth and relieve any pain caused by the infection.
When a tooth becomes infected, it means the bacteria have infiltrated the pulp or nerve of the tooth. It’s like a little party for the bacteria, but not so great for you. This infection can cause a lot of pain and can even spread to the bone surrounding the tooth. That’s where the root canal comes in! By removing the infected pulp and cleaning out the inside of the tooth, we can save the tooth and prevent further infection. It may not sound like the most fun thing in the world, but a root canal can actually prevent a lot of pain and complications down the line.
Pain when chewing
One of the most common signs that you may need a root canal is pain when chewing. If you notice that your tooth hurts when you bite down, it may be a sign that the nerve is inflamed or infected.
Sensitivity to hot or cold
Another common sign of an infected nerve is sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures. If you notice that your tooth hurts when you eat or drink something hot or cold, it may be a sign that you need a root canal.
If you notice that your gums are swollen around a particular tooth, it may be a sign of an infection. Swelling can also be accompanied by pain, redness, and warmth.
If you notice pus or other drainage coming from around your tooth, it may be a sign of an infection. Drainage is often accompanied by other symptoms such as swelling, redness, and pain.
When it comes to keeping your smile shining bright, preserving your natural teeth is key. That’s why we always recommend root canal therapy as one of our first potential solutions. While root canals may sometimes get a bad reputation, the truth is that they are an incredible way to save a tooth that might otherwise need to be removed. Not only does this preserve the natural look and function of your smile, but it can also save you money and hassle in the long run.
