Root Canal Treatment in Cleveland

Are you in Cleveland and are suffering from an excruciating toothache? You may need a Root Canal Treatment.

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.

Why a Root Canal Treatment?

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.

What is a Root Canal | Cleveland Dentist Explains

A root canal treatment heals the tooth by removing this infected or dead tissue and sealing it.

Which leads to the next question... are root canal treatments painful?

Are root canal treatments painful?

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.

Signs/symptoms of needing a Root Canal

  • Moderate to severe lingering toothache pain when drinking hot or cold liquids or foods
  • Moderate to severe pain when biting on a tooth
  • Sensitivity to tapping or pressure on the tooth
  • A Toothache that wakes you up in the middle of the night
  • A pimple on your gum that may release pus or blood
  • Radiating pain from one area of the mouth to another

Now that you know the sign and symptoms, let's dig into the treatment.

Following an Endodontic 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:

  • sensitivity to hot and/or cold
  • sensitivity to pressure
  • possible swelling

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.
