Neglecting the symptoms associated with the root canal infection may result in the removal of your tooth, or even more severe health issues. Seeing a dentist can prevent the problems at an early stage and save your tooth.
An infected tooth may cause a severe toothache, but many other factors can indicate an infected pulp (the centre of your tooth). Other symptoms may include, but are not limited to:
Your dentist will remove the bacteria from your tooth by cleansing its canal. To lower the sensitivity during the treatment, you may be given a local anaesthetic for your comfort. After the cleansing of the canal, your dentist will close and seal it with the required method to avoid any new bacteria from re-entering.
To avoid any new damage, it is vital to maintain good oral health and hygiene both at home and with regular check-ups at the dentist.
