Quality Root Canal Treatment in Bentleigh East
Root canals are the cavities that exist inside the walls of a tooth. When there is tooth decay, the pulp may be in danger of permanent damage. In these situations, a root canal treatment may be required to save the tooth before it decays further and is irreparably damaged.
During a root canal procedure, the pulp is cleaned, and the pulp cavity is filled in order to prevent an infection from developing in the tooth. This procedure will quickly relieve your toothaches and stop any infection from progressing.
A common misconception is that a root canal is a painful procedure. This is because, either through an accident or avoiding earlier treatment, people are already in significant pain when they go to receive a root canal treatment. The root canal treatment itself is relatively painless, and is a procedure that removes pain caused by decay.
These are some common symptoms that indicate you might need a root canal treatment:
- Tender gums which might also be swollen
- Extreme sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures
- Discoloration of the tooth
- Severe toothache
