What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a narrow column in the tooth structure that runs inside each tooth root. A single tooth can have multiple canals in it. The canals contain blood vessels and nerves. When this tissue becomes infected, swelling, abscess and pain can result.
What is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy is performed when a tooth has become infected. During the procedure, the infected tissue is removed, then the inside of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected and filled with sterile material.
Root canal therapy can save a tooth from needing extraction, thus prolonging oral health. Once your tooth has been restored, normal function of the tooth returns.
Signs you need a Root Canal
When a root canal becomes infected, it usually causes pain and sometimes results in an abscess or swelling around or below the gums. In some cases the tooth may also become discolored.
Random instances of pain is also an indicator, for example, when you feel:
- Tenderness beneath your tooth
- Lasting pain from hot or cold
- Pain biting down
- Pain from no apparent cause
