About root canal treatment
A root canal treatment is a relatively simple and common procedure that is performed to save a tooth that has been severely damaged by decay or infection. The procedure involves removing the pulp from the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth, and then filling and sealing the space with a dental composite. Most patients report little or no pain during or after the treatment.
The most common symptoms of a pulp infection are toothache and sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures. Other symptoms may include swelling and redness around the tooth and pus drainage from the tooth.
A root canal treatment is usually performed in two visits. During the first visit, the dentist will numb the tooth and remove the infected pulp. On the second visit, the dentist will fill and seal the treated tooth with a dental filling.
A majority of people report that root canal treatment is not painful. However, some people may experience mild discomfort during the treatment. This can be relieved with over-the-counter pain medication.
Most people do not need to have a crown placed on their treated tooth after a root canal treatment. However, if the treated tooth is badly damaged or cracked, a crown may be needed to protect it from further damage.
Most people can expect their treated tooth to last for many years following a successful root canal treatment.
