When do I need to have root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment is needed when the dental pulp is infected or damaged. Dental pulp is the tissue inside the tooth. If it is infected you may feel pain when you chew or some reaction to hot and cold food and drinks, there might be some swelling or discolouring of the tooth, the tooth may suddenly break or become loose. Generally the decay may cause pulp infection, for example, if you don’t treat caries for a long time, the decay goes deeper and deeper into the tooth and reaches the pulp. Other but less common reasons include tooth grinding, gum disease and injury of the bone.
Is root canal treatment painful?
No, it is not painful nowadays. Local anaesthetic and professional dentist will help you to have your root canals treated without any pain and discomfort. The whole procedure takes about an hour. In some difficult cases the dentist will put a terminal filling and continue the treatment at your next appointment.
