Your dentist may have suggested to you that Root Canal Therapy treatment was needed for a particular tooth. Earlier, a badly infected tooth, or one that just had significant decay, was doomed to be extracted. Today, the majority of these teeth can be salvaged by an Endodontist.
Endodontics is an essential branch of dentistry playing a significant role in promoting oral health.
Why visit an Endodontist.
Endodontists play a significant role in reducing the microbial load and create adequate conditions to promote the healing of the tissues surrounding the root. Overall, the benefit of an endodontic treatment is not only to preserve the natural tooth, but also to prevent complications associated with the presence of an infection.
Some indications of the need for root canal treatment may be:
- Constant and severe tooth pain.
- Pain that worsens when you lie down and reduces when you sit up.
- Pain while chewing.
Tooth pain referred to head and ears.
• Sensitivity to hot and cold foods
