Save Your Tooth with Root Canal Treatment!
Infected teeth can occasionally become slowly infected and without any pain.
The dentist could suggest a root canal procedure to prevent infection and tooth extraction.
The dentist may advise a root canal even if you are not experiencing tooth discomfort. The goal is to extend the natural tooth’s life as much as possible to keep working.
How Does Root Canal Treatment Save Your Tooth?
When the pulp within your tooth (which becomes inflamed or infected due to deep decay, recurrent dental procedures, defective crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth), endodontic or root canal treatment is required, even if there are no apparent chips or fissures in the tooth, trauma can nevertheless cause pulp injury. Untreated pulp inflammation and infection can hurt or result in an abscess.
The inflamed or infected pulp is removed during a root canal or other endodontic procedure.
The inside of the tooth is then thoroughly cleansed and sanitised before being filled and sealed with gutta-percha, a substance resembling rubber.
After that, the tooth is protected by a crown or filling and is healed to continue functioning normally.
You can keep your natural smile, eat the foods you enjoy, and limit the need for future dental work with root canal therapy. Most teeth that have received root canal therapy can survive a lifetime with proper maintenance.
What Are the Signs that You Need a Root Canal Treatment?
Indicators of a tooth infection show that a root canal may be necessary. There are some symptoms to watch for, and they are apparent.
- Hot or cold sensitivity
- Swollen, tender gums
- Sores on the gums

A dental infection cannot be “waited out,” and doing so would be foolish. Because they believe the issue will resolve itself naturally, many people put off getting help.
