Symptoms

The most common symptom that may indicate the need for a root canal is tooth pain. The intensity of the pain can range from mild to severe; it may lessen or intensify throughout the day, or it may get worse only when you bite down on the tooth. Some patients experience prolonged sensitivity to hot food or liquids. Your gums may also feel tender and swollen near the problem area.

Causes

The nerve of the tooth gets damaged due to many reasons. One of the main causes is cavity in the tooth that grows deeper and touches the nerve. Since the cavity is filled with bacteria, the root canal gets inflamed and causes pain. Other reasons that may damage the teeth are accidental cracks or infection from gums reaching the base of roots. In such cases, root canal treatments can easily stabilise the position.

Root Canal Procedure
“Knowing what will happen ahead of time is more than half the battle. You will soon learn that it really is much ado about nothing.” So if you are advised by the dentist to get a root canal surgery done then it is required to take an X-ray of the affected tooth and perform a pulp test to check the tooth for a healthy response. During a surgery, the chambers and canals of the tooth are widened to remove the infested pulp and make room for sufficient filling either in one or two sittings.

Root canal treatment in Five Steps:
1.Identifying the deeply infected tooth
2.Making a route to the root
3.Cleaning the infected tissues
4.Refilling the chambers and canals
5.Rebuilding the tooth with an extra support and a crowning touch, if necessary
So what makes the filling?
The root canal filling constitutes a range of specific materials and its usage varies over clinics. Most commonly used materials for the obdurate include solids, semi-solids and pastes made of tooth sealant, zinc oxide-eugenol, resins, calcium hydroxide and glass ionomers depending on the type of cavity.
“The only alternative to root canal treatment is the extraction of the problematic tooth. It is wise to consider all of the implications of losing a tooth before having it removed.”
