What Causes Infection of the Root Canal?
The start of a tooth infection will typically not cause you to feel any pain at all. However, should your root cavity cause to flare up, you will experience a sharp pain running through your mouth. Symptoms include:
- Swelling of the gums
- Tenderness in the region affected
- Extreme sensitivity to ice and cold foods
- Extreme sensitivity to spicy food
Although your tooth care routine may be meticulous, at times an infection can arise due to reasons such as:
- Damage to the teeth
- Leaky fillings
- Tooth decay
The root canal is a home to dental pulp that continues from the upper region to the root of the teeth. This pulp chamber contains blood vessels, tissues, and nerves. This natural cavity delivers key nutrients to the teeth. When a patient gets a bacterial infection, the tissues inside the pulp begin to decompose, sooner or later turning into puss. If left untreated, the infection can spread from one tooth to other surrounding teeth.
How is Root Canal Treatment Performed?
Root canal treatment is a procedure that removes decomposed soft tissue to clear out inflammation. A qualified dentist will clean the base of the tooth and eliminate any bacteria present in it. Upon finishing the treatment, a permanent filling or crown is placed to recover and increase the strength of the tooth. Typically, the procedure is done over the course of two to three appointments. Some cases may require more visits, depending on the severity of the infection and tooth that is affected.
