Exploring Root Canal Treatments: Understanding the Procedure and Benefits
What are Root Canal Treatments? Root canal treatments are dental procedures to treat infected or damaged tooth pulp, the innermost part of the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels. This treatment involves removing the infected tissue, disinfecting the root canal, and sealing it to prevent further infection. Possible Signs and Symptoms of Root Canal Infection: Root canal infections can manifest through various signs and symptoms, including:
- Severe tooth pain, especially when biting or chewing.
- Persistent tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures.
- Swelling and tenderness in the gums surrounding the affected tooth.
- A small pimple-like bump on the gum near the affected tooth.
- Darkening or discolouration of the tooth.
