Frequently Asked Questions about Root Canals
We have the answers.
What is a root canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure used to remove the infected or damaged pulp from the inside of a tooth. The pulp is the soft tissue that contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, and when it becomes infected, it can cause pain and swelling.
Why is a root canal necessary?
A root canal is necessary when the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected or damaged. Without treatment, the infection can spread to the surrounding teeth and gums, causing further damage and pain.
What are the signs that I may need a root canal?
The signs that you may need a root canal include severe toothache, sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, swelling or tenderness in the gums, and a discolored or darkened tooth.
Is a root canal painful?
While the idea of a root canal may sound painful, the procedure is typically not as uncomfortable as many people fear. Your dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the area and may provide sedation to help you relax during the procedure.
How long does a root canal take?
The length of a root canal procedure will depend on the location and complexity of the affected tooth. In general, the procedure can take 1-2 hours and may require more than one visit to complete.
How do I care for my tooth after a root canal?
After a root canal, it's important to practice good oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing regularly and visiting your dentist for regular checkups. You may also need to avoid hard or sticky foods for a few days after the procedure and take any prescribed pain medication as directed.
