At Lifestyle Dental, we have extensive knowledge and experience in root canal treatment.
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontics, is need when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth, known as the pulp, is infected through decay or injury. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
Why would I need root canal treatment?
The tooth’s nerves lie within the root canal and when this gets infected, it can be extremely painful. Without root canal treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form. Swelling that occurs can spread to other areas of the face, neck or head.
How does a tooth’s nerve get damaged?
A tooth’s nerve and pulp can become irritated, inflamed and infected due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on one tooth, large fillings, a crack or chip in the tooth or trauma to the face.
What are the symptoms that I should look out for?
- Pain when eating or drinking hot or cold food and drink
- Pain when biting or chewing
- A loose tooth
- Pain when biting or chewing returning
- Swelling of the gum near the affected tooth
- Pus oozing from the affected tooth
- Facial swelling
- The tooth becoming a darker colour
If you notice yourself suffering from any of these symptoms or suffering from any other pain, it is important to book an appointment to see a dentist.
