Do I need a Root Canal?
Root Canal may be required when the nerves and blood vessels within the roots of our teeth become infected. We stress flossing because plaque can cause tooth decay and tooth decay can cause infection of the roots or nerves within the teeth.
Unfortunately, once infected, it usually cannot be healed solely by antibiotics. The infected material must be removed from the roots, and the resulting void must be filled with a non-toxic biocompatible material.
How long will the root canal procedure take?
It's a fairly detailed process and there is time required. However, it is well worth alleviating the pain. Depending on the severity of the root infection, multiple appointments may be required. One thing is for sure, it is VERY important to stop the spread of infection as quickly as possible. Some people are fortunate and can recover quickly and return to work that day and others may require a little more time for things to calm down. Some patients are comfortable with a local freezing and others require sedation to deal with the pain. Don't worry, Byronwood Dental has done this before and you are not alone.
Will there be pain or discomfort?
A few days after the procedure some people still have tenderness when chewing, but the recovery is significantly less painful than the current pain.
The good news is that in a few days, you should be able to eat things you could not before the procedure.
