A root canal is used to repair and save a badly decaying or infected tooth. During a root canal treatment, the pulp and nerve are removed and the tooth’s insides are cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the surrounding tissues of the tooth can become infected and abscesses could form.
Common symptoms requiring a root canal treatment:
- Severe tooth pain that increases with the intake of hot liquids and normally relieved by cold water.
- Pain aggravates when lying down and lessens when you sits up.
- Pain tends to stay for a longer period of time after consuming cold things.
- Tooth pain that wakes you up at night
- Invariable tooth pain
- Swelling around the tooth
- Pain when chewing
