Toothache and dental emergencies can take many forms, and can seriously impact upon your quality of life. Your teeth may be painful to hot, cold or sweet foods or you may experience sharp pain in your tooth when biting down on food or even a dull aching pressure in the jaw. If you are feeling discomfort or pain, this may be a sign that you require root canal treatment (Endodontic treatment).
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is a way of saving a tooth that may have an abscess or be fractured, infected or decayed. The purpose is to rebuild the tooth and surrounding tissues to health, relieving both pain and infection.
Without root canal treatment the only other alternative is to have the infected tooth removed, and so replace it with an implant, a fixed bridge or a removable denture. None of these alternatives is anywhere near as effective as being able to actually keep the original tooth.
Not only is root canal treatment often the best option for you the client, it is also an extremely cost-effective way to treat teeth with a damaged nerve (pulp).
In the long run it is usually less expensive than extraction and placement of a bridge or an implant. Root canal treatment has a very high success rate, with many root canal treated teeth lasting a full lifetime after the procedure.
