What is a Root Canal and How Does It Work?

For a long time, a tooth that had a diseased nerve would have to be pulled. Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, that’s no longer the case. Now your tooth can be saved thanks to a root canal procedure.

When the pulp of a tooth is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If you don’t address it right away, you run the risk of losing the tooth. The best way to ensure that your tooth is saved is by getting a root canal.

During a root canal, a dentist will remove the nerve and affected tissue. After the root has been cleaned out, it will be sealed to protect it. From there, a custom-made crown will be placed over the tooth to help keep it healthy.

Signs You Need a Root Canal

  • Severe teeth pain when eating or when you put pressure on the area
  • Tenderness or swelling in the gums near the area of tooth pain
  • A small, pimple-like bump on the gums near the area of tooth pain
  • Darkening of the tooth
  • Tooth pain and sensitivity to hot or cold that lingers after the hot or cold stimuli have been removed

If you think you might need a root canal, don’t wait any longer. Contact us at Dental and Facial Aesthetics of South Florida today to schedule an appointment to meet with one of our trained dentists.
