Root Canal Pain
Root canals come under a branch of dentistry called endodontics, which means inside the tooth. It is concerned with the study and treatment of the dental pulp.
A root canal is a procedure that is required when all or some part of the dental pulp becomes infected, and needs to be removed in order to save the tooth. It is a common procedure, one that has been around for a long time. The procedure itself and the materials used have improved greatly over time. It really is an effective way to restore a tooth to a functional state. Once the infected material has been removed from the inside of the tooth is filled with specially prepared medical material and then the tooth will generally be restored with a crown.
Occasionally a root canal will need to be revisited in the future, but with the correct care they can last as long as your other teeth. A root canal handles not only the pain, but saves the tooth and is actually beneficial to your general oral health in the long run.
