WHY GET A ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?
A “root canal” treatment saves a severely injured, cracked, or decayed tooth when its pulp (the soft inner tissue inside a tooth’s root canal) becomes inflamed or infected. If it is not treated promptly, pain or a tooth abscess (infection) results.
Root canal treatment involves the removal of the diseased pulp along with the tooth’s nerve (located within a tooth’s root canal). The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of your tooth are then cleaned, medicated and sealed. A dental crown or other restorative treatment is used to protect and strengthen the tooth.
Root canal treatment is completed in one or two office visits, depending on the presence of infection and the required treatment plan. If a tooth is severely infected, it may take more than one appointment to eliminate the problem. Occasionally the body doesn’t heal as fast as one would like it to, so sometimes its better to treat the infection before completing the root canal treatment. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth. With good oral hygiene, the restored tooth has the potential to last a lifetime.
SYMPTOMS THAT YOU NEED A ROOT CANAL
Call us at 412.406.8100 if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Tooth or gum pain, discoloration, or prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
- A tooth that is tender when it is touched
- A tooth abscess(pus enclosed in the tissues of the jawbone at the tip of an infected tooth)
- Pus drainage in your mouth
- Swelling or tenderness in the lymph nodes under your jaw
Sometimes an endodontic problem can exist without warning signs. In these cases, a Digital X-ray taken during a routine dental checkup will reveal the tooth damage.
