To begin, let’s take a look at what root canal therapy is. By looking at a diagram of the tooth, you would see that the inner chamber houses the root or the nerves of your teeth. This particular part of the tooth is also known as the pulp. Sometimes when this pulp becomes infected, it can cause swelling and very intense pain. It is the job of your dental professional to make a small access hole at the top of your tooth to remove this infected tissue. Once the infection is out, the tooth will be sealed with a filling and given time to heal. As with any other kind of infection, antibiotics will be recommended to fight it.
Many patients come into the dental office scared that root canal therapy will only make their pain worse, the reality of the situation is that at a root canal is warranted because of a severe infection. Left untreated, you the patient, will be left with excruciating pain that will only become worse and worse. Without root canal therapy, you can be left with a tooth that needs to be extracted, and no one wants missing teeth!
