Having pain in the tooth whenever you eat something, tenderness in the gum or swollen gums? Well, these are the signs of infection in the root canal of your teeth. A root canal is a hollow segment under the top layers of tooth like enamel and dentin, containing the nerves and blood vessels of the tooth. It is also known as pulp chamber or canal. When infection persists in this area, it infects the nerves making tooth feel sensitive and ultimately infects the entire tooth, forcing a dentist to remove it.
A long time ago, it was common for people to die due to tooth infection or an abscessed tooth. Infection can occur due to various reasons like the growth of bacteria; the occurrence of any splinter in the root canal etc. may damage the pulp. If it is not removed or treated on time, it can lead to serious infection resulting in an abscessed tooth. If you are having pain in the tooth or your gums, have swollen then you must go to a root canal specialist as he will tell you if you need a root canal treatment or not. If you do not need any treatment, then the dentist will only treat you with antibiotics. Otherwise, he will undergo a root canal surgery.
This surgery is not a small dental surgery and may require one to three appointments to do it thoroughly and correctly. It depends on various reasons like the scale of infection, how many teeth are infected or need treatment, and which tooth is infected as the inner tooth like molar takes the time to be treated. A root canal is not only used to get rid of the infection, but it is also used in case of the dental implant.
If the structure of your tooth is damaged and cannot support the implant properly or is coming in the way of the perfect fixture of implant then also doctors go for root canal treatment. They will clear the root canal and remove all the pulp from there. Then the dentist will implant the metal fixture in the hollow root of the tooth on which a metal tooth or a tooth lookalike will be fixed as per the choice of the patient.
