Dental pain is the most common symptom of dental caries, trauma, periodontitis, infection, etc. Each tooth has the most vital tissue called the pulp. The Pulp consists of blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerves. When pulp is violated by infection or trauma, the person may feel pain. The pain will be short sharp or dull aching. Dental pain can also associate with swelling or pus discharge.
For permanent relief from pain, root canal treatment is the option.
Root canal treatment (Root canal therapy)
Root canal treatment is the common dental care procedure to save the damaged tooth. The tooth is repaired to retain its normal function. In root canal treatment, the infected pulp is removed, cleaned, shaped, medicated and filled with Gutta Percha( a natural filling material).
Many people have fear root canal treatment procedure, so they leave the tooth untreated.
Root canal treatment is performed under proper local anesthesia for comfortable and painless treatment. The tooth is drilled in a proper position to access infected pulp. Root canals are cleaned and medicated to subside the infection. Once symptoms’ disappear, root canals are filled with natural latex and sealed.
The function of the tooth is thus restored by placing a crown. Maintaining proper oral hygiene will preserve the tooth for a long time.
