What is a Root Canal?
Root canals are the cavities that exist inside the walls of a tooth. When there is tooth decay, the pulp may be in danger of permanent damage. In these situations, a root canal treatment may be required to save the tooth before it decays further and is irreparably damaged. During a root canal procedure, the pulp is cleaned and the pulp cavity is filled in order to prevent an infection from developing in the tooth. This procedure should quickly relieve your toothaches and stop any infection from progressing.
These are some common symptoms that indicate you might need a root canal treatment:
- Tender gums which might also be swollen
- Extreme sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures
- Discoloration of the tooth
- Severe toothache
