Hearing the words root canal Pompano Beach will probably send anyone in a state of panic and that’s because we’ve been made to believe that a root canal treatment is going to cause immense pain. Nothing could be further from the truth, in fact, root canal therapy will relieve you from the pain that comes with infected pulp. If your dentist recommends the root canal then it’s because you badly need it to save your teeth and to stop the infection from spreading.
A root canal is a type of treatment that aims to repair and salvage a severely infected tooth. Contrary to popular belief, pain doesn’t come from the procedure itself but is rather caused by the infection. In this procedure, your endodontist will remove the decayed and infected pulp, clean the area and disinfect it and then fill it up and seal it to preserve the integrity and function of the tooth. What causes a tooth to become infected? It could be because of a deep cavity, a cracked tooth, trauma or repeated treatments to the affected tooth. It’s called root canal because your dentist literally clears out the infection in the canals of your tooth root.
Root canal is often prescribed to patients who experience severe pain when they bite or chew, if they notice small bumps on their gums, if a cracked or chipped tooth is present, if their gums are red, painful and swollen, if they are sensitive to cold and hot food and drinks, and if they have severe tooth decay.
Aside from looking at the symptoms, the best way to know if you need root canal treatment is to see your endodontist.
