How Do I Know if I Need Root Canal Treatment?:

If you need a root canal treatment, you will probably experience the symptoms of pulp tissue damage. Individuals may experience symptoms differently, but these are the most common symptoms of an injured or damaged pulp:

  • Pain when biting down and chewing
  • Oversensitivity of teeth with hot or cold food or beverages
  • Facial swelling

Root canal treatment is one of the popular treatments that saves the tooth by removing the pulp tissue of the tooth. The treatment is usually indicated in the following cases:

Infection of the tooth: In this case, an untreated decay of the tooth may lead to inflammation and infection of the pulp. This can be dangerous when the infection spreads to the surrounding bony structures.
Trauma to the tooth: Any kind of trauma to the tooth will evoke a pulpal reaction. In many cases, the trauma might have occurred years back to be manifested as a new case of infection. Chronic irritation and trauma can also lead to the infection of the pulp.

Whatever be the reason for the infection, prompt treatment and filling of the root canals is essential to control the infection and bring the tooth back to the normal state. It is almost impossible to retain such an infected tooth without doing root canal treatment, and the other option is to extract the affected tooth and get it replaced.
