Introduction

Most of us would have had tooth pain and severe discomfort due to decayed tooth but we all think that extraction of the teeth is the only solution to get rid of the pain :but no, we can save the natural teeth and also get rid of the pain, the magic or the secret ingredient is nothing but getting a Root canal treatment done before its too late … So gear up !

Why do I need a root canal?

Root canals are needed to remove bacteria and. infected tissue from a tooth's infected root. Performing root canal therapy prevents reinfection and can help save the natural tooth. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, a root canal may be the answer:

  • Severe pain while chewing or biting
  • General trauma to the tooth, such as a chipped or cracked tooth
  • Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold, even after the sensation has been removed
  • Aching or constant throbbing pain in the mouth
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • Deep decay or darkening of the gums

What happens during a root canal?

Today’s root canals are very similar to a routine dental filling and are not painful. Often the pain from your tooth is worse
than the actual procedure.

The procedure, given proper anesthesia, has no pain at all!!!!

After treatment, you will be pain-free and on your way to recovery. Your dentist or endodontist will begin by numbing the
area. They then remove the inflamed or infected nerve of the tooth. The area is then filled and sealed to prevent repeat infection.  Afterward, you will likely need a crown placed on the treatedtooth to restore full form and function.  

Run don’t walk!

Don’t let your fear of the dentist or root canals keep you from becoming pain-free. The longer you wait, the more pain you will experience and can sometimes result in losing the tooth if not treated. This also risks greater and worsening infection. At THANC, our dentists and endodontist are well-trained and want to help you become pain-free. If you are experiencing tooth pain, schedule your appointment today.

Still anxious? Ask your dentist or endodontist what can be done to help alleviate your dental anxiety.
