A root canal treatment is the dental treatment performed when tooth decay wiggles its way deep enough in the tooth to infect the root, or the pulp.
This treatment is performed in order to treat the infection and eliminate your aches and pains.

When tooth decay gets into the pulp of the tooth, the pulp becomes infected. As the pulp tries to fight this infection, it wants to swell.
Since there is no room for it to swell, instead of healing, the tissue begins to die.
A root canal treatment heals the tooth by removing this infected or dead tissue and sealing it.
Usually, a root canal treatment is not a difficult procedure for the patient.
Sometimes the pulp tissue is already dead and no novocaine is even needed. But if you are afraid of this treatment, we can use nitrous oxide gas or sedation dentistry to make it easier for you.
Some people have the mistaken notion that this procedure is very painful and stressful, so they elect to have a tooth extracted.
But a tooth extraction is one of the most stressful appointments for a patient.
It is much more practical, in most cases, to save the tooth with a root canal.
If you are looking to save your teeth and believe a root canal might be the best option, you may be wondering what signs or symptoms should you be paying attention to.
Now that you know the sign and symptoms, let's dig into the treatment.
Endodontic treatments can take one, two, or three appointments depending on each case.
It is possible to experience any of the following symptoms after any one of these appointments:
It is difficult to predict which symptoms, if any, you may experience and to what extent. In complicated cases, pain medication may be necessary.
If you experience swelling, call our office immediately; it may be necessary to prescribe an antibiotic for you.
A temporary filling may be used to seal the tooth between visits.
Be gentle on the tooth while eating until the final restoration is placed.
During the root canal treatment, the nerve, blood and nutrient supply to the tooth is removed. This will cause the tooth to become brittle and prone to fracturing which can result in the need to extract the tooth.
In many cases, a full coverage dental crown restoration may be recommended to prevent this from happening.
