A root canal is performed on patients to save their natural teeth from bacteria attacks. It is important to do root canal therapy when your endodontist suggests it because it could be the only way to prevent reinfection of the tooth, especially when you have an infected root canal. In a root canal treatment, the infected or inflamed pulp is removed, and the tooth itself is thoroughly cleaned, disinfected, filled with suitable material and sealed. Doing root canal treatment at the right time can prevent reinfection of the tooth. 

When is root canal treatment done?

During your regular dental visits, your dentist would be able to see whether you have any issues with your teeth and gums. If they detect an infected pulp (inflamed or injured soft inner part of the tooth), then they would advice you to do the root canal treatment, especially if that’s the only way to save your natural tooth. 

If that’s not the case, then there are other symptoms that you would probably feel:

  • Severe pain in the infected teeth
  • Swollen gums
  • Gum tenderness
  • Mild fever

Another discomfort 

The pain that you feel is not the regular dental pain, but an intense kind of pain that aggravates simply when you change your position. The pain is so much that you would not be able to sleep well. 

The other discomfort that we mentioned can be fever and a general feeling of uneasiness; you might require endodontic surgery if you have the symptoms mentioned above.

Advantages of doing a root canal on your tooth

If you have an infected pulp, then doing a root canal treatment would definitely be advantageous in many ways. Here are some of them:

Stop spreading the infection to neighbouring teeth

Often, when the tooth cavity is infected, it is the terrible toothache that brings it to your attention. Waiting out could cause the bacteria to spread, and this must be dealt with, at once. Root canal treatment would remove the bacteria, and the endodontist would clean the cycle and disinfect it. This would save the teeth and protect it from decay. Once the disinfecting is done, there is no chance the bacteria would spread. 

Saves your teeth

With root canal therapy, you don’t have to worry about losing your tooth because what causes the infection will be removed, and won’t be spread. Once you maintain good oral health and hygiene, the rest of the teeth would be protected too. 

Prevents the jawbone from degenerating

Root canal treatment helps in the preservation of teeth, and this leads to an intact jawbone. So when you do root canal treatment at the right time, you prevent the degeneration of your jawbone.
