Root Canal Treatment Can Restore Your Tooth & Relieve You Of Pain

Unfortunately, root canals don't have a great reputation. Fortunately, the way they're perceived isn't true. If you're experiencing pain because of deep infection or tooth sensitivity, root canal treatment, also referred to as endodontic treatment, will relieve you of your tooth pain and prevent infection from spreading to the rest of your teeth. Our dentist in Vancouver can help you prevent further infection from occurring with the help of proper dental care and a healthy at-home oral health care routine.

Root Canal Therapy Explained

Beneath your tooth's enamel and hard dentin is a soft tissue called the pulp which contains a bunch of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. That's why, when infection occurs (deep decay) you can experience a lot of tooth pain and sensitivity. It can get infected for a few different reasons: trauma to your tooth, excessive bacteria, certain medical conditions, sugary foods, not booking regular check-ups or having a healthy oral hygiene routine.

Root Canal Treatment Can Restore Your Tooth & Relieve You Of Pain

As well as relieving you of pain and sensitivity, undergoing Root Canal Therapy Downtown Vancouver allows patients to get their normal biting and chewing abilities back, restores the tooth's appearance, and prevents infection from spreading to other teeth, as well as to the bloodstream. This is why visiting the dentist as soon as you notice discomfort is important. If not dealt with in a timely manner, the infection can spread to other parts of your body.

Infected Tissue/Pulp Symptoms

Call Our Dentists If You Notice The Following:

Facial Swelling

Swelling around your gums is very common, but so is swelling around your cheeks, jaw, and neck. Your lymph nodes may also feel tender and swollen as well.

Throbbing Toothache

A throbbing toothache can extend through your jaw, ear, and neck too. In some cases, patients may even end up developing an ear infection. A toothache will also make it difficult to eat properly.

Fever

In more serious cases, an infected pulp can cause symptoms such as fever and even difficulty breathing. If you're noticing these symptoms, you'll need to undergo an emergency root canal.

Bad Breath

Bad breath that won't go away is a sure sign of an infected tooth. This is due to the bacteria or any pus that's formed on the gums, especially if it's ruptured.

Noticeable Abscess

Any noticeable abscesses (pockets of pus) can form on the gums near the tip of the tooth's root. As soon as you notice any abscesses, you should seek dental treatment as soon as possible.

Improved Tooth Appearance

After the root canal procedure, you may receive a temporary filling until your tooth has fully healed. After which, we'll place a custom, permanent filling or dental crown at your next appointment.
