What is root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp tissues from the tooth in the event that it gets infected or inflamed. The pulp can be infected or inflamed due to either deep decay or an extensive restoration that involves the pulp, cracked or fractured tooth due to trauma, excessive wear of enamel and dentine exposing the pulp, and sometimes as a result of severe gum disease.

If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can eventually cause pain, swelling and loss of the supporting bone.

What are the advantages of root canal treatment

Root canal treatment saves teeth that would otherwise have been extracted. After root canal treatment the tooth is pulp-less i.e. it has no vital tissues within. However, there are vital tissues surrounding the root e.g. the gum, periodontal membrane and supporting bone.

A root canal treated tooth can function normally and can be maintained with routine dental care and oral hygiene measures.

When is root canal treatment needed?

A root canal treatment is needed when the pulp has been damanged by bacteria. The pulp may become inflamed if it's infected by bacteria, allowing the bacteria to multiply and spread.

Symptoms of a pulp infection include:

  • A loose tooth
  • Pain when chewing, talking or biting
  • Pain or sensitivity when eating or drinking hot or cold food and drinks
  • Swelling of the gum around the tooth or area of sensitivity
  • Pus oozing around the tooth
  • A swallen cheek or jaw
  • Discolouration of the tooth
