A root canal is a dental procedure aimed at removing infected material from the tooth and providing ease to root canal pain. A root canal involves removing a nerve from an infected tooth, caused by decay or infection in the tooth pulp.
Root canal pain is commonly caused by decay: deterioration on the outer layers of the teeth. Damage to the teeth e.g. tooth chipping and diseases caused by recent dental procedures or infections lead to serious root canal problems.
If you are experiencing severe pain in the teeth during eating, or when pressure is applied to the teeth, a root canal may be necessary. Other symptoms may include, sensitivity to hot or cold substances, swelling gums, and tender teeth. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms your Dentist may recommend a root canal.
Root canals are commonly less painful than what you may have heard. Typically, complaints about root canals emerge due to a lingering inflammation on the gums. This, however, is because while the damaged nerve is removed, there are still many tiny nerves and connecting tissues that register the pain in the procedure and should resolve quickly.
Kootani Dental cda ensures that dental procedures are completed with caution. For a root canal, the tooth is numbed so that the patient does not undergo any duress due to pain. Medicine is typically placed in the pulp chamber (where the nerve or pulp is taken out from) to avoid any impending infections. Following this, a temporary filling is put in place to prevent infections. The filling is smoothed out carefully to ensure that no pain is caused by an inappropriate, high-filling. At last, the temporary filling is extracted and a permanent filling or a tooth crown is put to strengthen the tooth. Patients at Kootani Dental cda are also required to go for regular tooth check-ups and cleanings to maintain the hygiene of their teeth and avoid any sort of infections. We provide patients with affordable prices for a root canal while also giving the best dental care to our patients.
