Root Canal Treatment Near Malvern

Root canal treatment is a dental procedure that prolongs the life of a damaged or infected tooth, possibly saving it from being extracted/ pulled out. It significantly relieves the symptoms of a tooth infection such as toothache.

With a couple of appointments at an established dental clinic, you are sure to get your tooth repaired effectively and with almost no pain at all.

The need for Root Canal Treatment

The soft inner part of a tooth, known as the pulp, consists of nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. It helps the tooth to grow by supplying the required nourishment. When tooth cavities prevail, bacteria can enter the pulp and lead to its infection and inflammation. Once the pulp is damaged, a tooth may become sensitive to heat or cold, resulting in varying degrees of pain. At this point, immediate dental attention and root canal treatment is required to restore your tooth and alleviate the pain.

Symptoms

Cavities can be identified even before the symptoms have developed via routine dental radiographs. For later stages, there are hallmark signs of cavities that may require root canal treatment for symptom relief. These include symptoms such as:

  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Severe dental pain
  • Darkened or discoloured tooth
  • Toothache due to biting or chewing
  • Gum swelling or soreness
  • Facial swelling

If you notice any of these symptoms, it is important to consult your dentist immediately. Our proficient team of dentists at Your Dental Place will help you with the right dental treatment.

How painful is Root Canal Treatment?

With dental advances, root canal treatment is now painless. However, mild pain after the treatment is normal as the treated tooth and the surrounding nerves are still sensitive.  This is temporary and can be mitigated by using over-the-counter pain medications. However, if the pain lasts longer than three days, it should be immediately brought to the attention of the dentist.

Post-Root Canal Care

Other ways to reduce pain from a recent root canal is by following an excellent oral hygiene routine. We advise you to brush twice a day, floss, reduce the intake of sugary foods and drinks and have regular dental check-ups to ensure there is no infection. Generally after root canal is completed badly broken teeth may require a dental crown to protect the tooth from further damage.
