Why Should You Choose Root Canal?

Have you ever had to sleep through a toothache? Long-term toothaches, severe tooth decay, and even sensitive teeth are the most prevalent oral problems that can be painfully unpleasant.

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic therapy, is a common dental operation performed by endodontists to treat such problems. If you've never had a root canal treatment before, you're probably wondering what it's all about.

What is a Root Canal Treatment?

The removal of infected or damaged pulp in the root cavity is performed in a painless procedure known as root canal treatment. After that, the cavity is cleaned, sterilized, and filled with gutta-percha, a popular polymer used in root canal treatment. If the patient so desires, the cavity may also be covered with a crown.

Major Benefits of Root Canal

The following are some of the most important advantages this treatment has to offer -

  • It prevents the loss of teeth
  • Infection of neighboring teeth is prevented
  • Maintains the appearance of teeth
  • It prevents the deterioration of the jawbone
  • Improves dental and general health
  • It's almost painless

What Are the Signs and Symptoms That You Might Need a Root Canal? 

When the soft tissue or pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected to the point that it can no longer be returned to health, root canal therapy is required. If you're experiencing any of the symptoms listed below, you may need root canal therapy.

  • Constant toothache
  • Broken tooth
  • Severe sensitivity
  • Swollen gum
  • Cracked tooth

How Painful is the Root Canal Procedure?

A root canal is a necessary operation for removing cavities and decayed teeth. Sadly, root canal therapy has a long history of being associated with pain and discomfort. Most people report that this process is more painful than getting a filling put in. However, dentists now have various options for reducing discomfort and pain, thanks to technological advancements. In most cases, there is no pain or only a minor amount of discomfort. The dentist will always use a local anesthetic, and if the patient is still afraid, they may utilize various techniques to ensure no pain at all.
