What is a root canal?
Root canal treatment is a procedure that involves removing the infected nerve of the tooth and cleaning out the canals of the tooth. This treatment can help save a tooth that has been damaged due to an infection or injury.
What are the signs I need a root canal?
The following are signs that you may need a root canal:
• Severe toothache or pain when biting or chewing
• Swelling and tenderness of the gums
• Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
• Discoloration of the tooth
• Pus or abscess near the affected tooth
How is a root canal performed?
During a root canal, the dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the area. Then, they will make an opening in the top of the affected tooth to access the nerve. The dentist will then remove the nerve and any other infected tissue. Then, they will clean, shape, and fill the canals of the tooth. Finally, the dentist will seal the opening and place a crown or other restoration over the tooth.
