Times Where You Need a Root Canal

Posted on 9/15/2016 by Dr Wael Garine
An elderly woman receiving a root canal.A common procedure, a root canal can save you from a lot of trouble, both orally and even from problems in other parts of your body.

A root canal helps to save your tooth, rather than having it removed.

In this procedure, the pulp and root of the tooth, considered "dead," are removed and the area cleaned and disinfected.

The canal is then filled and sealed, most often with a crown, which helps to strengthen the tooth. There are several instances which may warrant the need for a root canal.

Pain
While pain isn't always an immediate indication that a root canal is needed, there are certain types that can be evidence. Throbbing pain is usually a good indication.

Lingering pain is also another hint, especially following chewing or a drastic temperature change to either very hot or very cold.

Another type of pain that can indicate the need for a root canal is positional pain. This type of pain is brought on by or changes in intensity as the body changes position. For instance, a dull ache when you are sitting or standing may become significantly worse when you lie down.

Infection
Infections can be brought on by several things. One of the most common causes for infection is gum disease. Bacteria gets under the gums and into the roots of your teeth, causing an infection, often leading to an abscess.

Abscesses are also brought about by untreated tooth decay as well as a chipped or broken tooth. In these cases, the pulp of the tooth is exposed and bacteria enters your tooth through these openings.

No matter how the infection enters your tooth, they all have one thing in common. Left untreated, they can enter into the bloodstream and spread throughout the body, leading to several other health conditions, such as heart disease or strokes.

Damaged or infected teeth need treatment right away. If you are experiencing pain or suspect you may have an infection, call our office right away.

A root canal can save your tooth and save you from a substantial amount of trouble.
