Are you struggling with a severe toothache? Perhaps you’re dealing with an infection inside your tooth. If bacteria from your infected root canal have been causing this problem, your dentist will suggest a root canal Lake Worth treatment. Here are the common questions that patients ask about this procedure:
A root canal is an endodontic treatment that’s designed to remove the bacteria from an infected root canal, prevent reinfection, and save the natural tooth. Once you undergo a root canal therapy, your tooth’s inflamed pulp will be removed before the dentist carefully cleans and disinfects its internal portion, fills it and seals it to keep it protected.
Root canal treatments are needed for a deep cavity, a cracked tooth, or problems from a previous filling. However, if you experience symptoms such as pimples on the gums, severe pain when you chew or bite, a chipped or cracked tooth, swelling or tenderness in the gums, deep decay or darkening of the gums or a lingering sensitivity to hot or cold sensations, you probably need to get a root canal treatment.
Thanks to the anesthesia that’s given to the patients, root canal therapy isn’t more painful than any other dental procedure like getting a filling or having your impacted wisdom tooth extracted. However, you may feel a little numb or sore after the procedure.
Despite the fact that a certain degree of numbness will be felt around the affected area for about 2 to 4 hours after the procedure, some patients are able to get back to work directly following their root canal therapy.
