When Would You Need a Root Canal Treatment?

You would need root canal therapy for your teeth under certain conditions. Rosemont Dental Center is here to help you to get the best treatment with the proper information that you would require.

When to Visit for Your Root Canal Treatment

You will need a root canal treatment or endodontic therapy when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes irritated or infected. If the inflammation or infection is not treated as soon as possible, it might result in pain or an abscess. 

Deep decay, repeated dental operations on the tooth, a crack or chip in the tooth, or a flawed crown restoration are all possible causes of inflammation or infection. Moreover, even if a tooth has no obvious chips or breaks, an injury to the tooth might induce pulp damage. 

Symptoms of the Need for a Root Canal Treatment

There are a few signs that you may require a root canal treatment:

  • When eating or biting anything, you can feel a lot of pain.
  • Gums have pimples
  • A chipped or cracked tooth
  • Even after the sensation has been eliminated, there is lingering sensitivity to hot or cold.
  • Gums that are swollen or painful
  • Gum disease or decay is indicated by a yellowing of the gums.

How Root Canal Treatment Is Done

An endodontist removes the infected pulp and nerve in the root of the tooth, cleans and forms the interior of the root canal, and then fills and covers the gap. Your dentist will then install a crown over the tooth to safeguard it and restore its function. 

When you put off getting a root canal for too long, you risk losing your tooth. When the root of an infected tooth is left untreated for an extended period, bone loss occurs.
