What is a Root Canal?
Root canal treatment eliminates bacteria from the infected root canal, prevents reinfection of the tooth, and saves the natural tooth. During a root canal, the dentist removes the inflamed or infected pulp. The inside of the tooth then is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed. A cracked tooth from injury or genetics, a deep cavity, or issues from a previous filling usually require a root canal.
SYMPTOMS OF A POSSIBLE INFECTION
- A chipped or cracked tooth
- Deep decay or darkening of the gums
- Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold, even after removal of the sensation
- Pimples on the gums
- Severe pain while chewing or biting
- Swollen or tender gums
