ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Root Canal Procedures at our dental office in Binbrook
A root canal is the hollow area of the tooth which is made up of tissue, pulp, and blood vessels. A root canal procedure is often needed if the nerves within the tooth are infected. When the tooth is infected you’ll feel the pain right in the root of your tooth.
Symptoms include: pain or sensitivity when the tooth is touched, or pressure is applied, sensitivity when eating hot or cold foods and drinks, tooth discoloration, decay, or significant physical trauma to the tooth such as chips or cracks.
The root canal procedure
During the procedure, affected dental pulp and damaged nerves are removed to prevent infection from spreading and the canal is then filled. As a result, you won’t have sensation when food touches the filled tooth. Typically, patients adapt within a couple days.
