What is Endodontics?
Endodontics is a specialty field of dentistry that is solely dedicated to treating problems within the pulp chamber such as deep infection or decay and for the other supporting structures of teeth. A dentist specializes in Endodontics for two years of training to gain knowledge and expertise in the given field. Only then can the dentist be qualified as an Endodontist.
What are the symptoms that show you need a root canal?
The common signs that indicate you might require a root canal include:
- Severe toothache pain while chewing or applying pressure
- Prolonged sensitivity while having hot or cold food items
- Pain after consumption of something hot or cold
- Tooth turning dark
- Swollen and tender gums
- Abscess on the gums
In some cases, there won't be any signs or symptoms. So, it is essential to visit your dentist for regular checkups to determine root canal treatment or any other treatment for your oral concern at its earliest. If you need more help to treat your oral condition, we will refer you to a root canal specialist.
What will happens if you don't get your root canal treatment?
Endodontic therapy or root canal therapy is generally considered for patients who have suffered severe infection or decay of the dental pulp. The cause of such internal decay could be a minor crack that progressed into deeper ones, paving the entry of bacteria into the inner dental pulp, thereby infecting its fresh and healthy tissues. Such an infection would not only put your jawbones at risk but can affect the entire oral cavity.
How can you benefit from a root canal treatment?
During the root canal treatment, the endodontist will remove any infected tissues of the pulp, cleanse the canal system, and seal it with a filling to restrict the entry of further infection-causing bacteria. This would eliminate signs of pain, tooth sensitivity, and discomfort.
