Do I Need A Root Canal?
If you’re suffering from severe tooth pain from an infection, then yes, you need a root canal. Tooth infections can spread to the center of your teeth. This inner area is what’s known as the dental pulp. Within your pulp is a myriad of nerves, tissues, and blood vessels. These internal tissues are susceptible and, when infected, cause tremendous pain. If left untreated, the infection can spread to other teeth.
Consider root canal therapy if you experience or see any of the following:
- severe or spontaneous pain
- sensitivity with hot or cold food and drink
- pain when biting down or chewing
- swelling in the gums
- teeth discoloration
- gum sensitivity
- pus or abscess present
- swelling and tenderness in jaw lymph nodes
- bad breath that doesn’t go away
How Does Treatment Work?
The leading cause of tooth pain needing a root canal is infection. So the first step is for the Endodontist to create a small hole to the infection site. Then the dental pulp will be removed and, if needed, the roots. Removing tooth roots won’t harm your teeth once they’re fully matured.
In fact, removing the roots will help stop the infection spread. Dr. Maz will then clean the inner tooth to ensure the infection is gone. He carefully ensures that the entire tooth is clean to prevent the infection from returning. He will then typically prescribe antibiotics. This prescription will help ensure that any lingering infection is treated and eliminated. After the pulp is cleaned and shaped, the dentist will fill and seal it properly.

Despite dentistry advancements, Root Canals still have a reputation for being very painful. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Modern-day root canals are actually entirely pain-free for many patients. In fact, root canals will help stop your severe tooth pain.

My Pain Went Away On Its Own, Do I Still Need A Root Canal?
Patients many times think the worst is over when their sudden tooth pain goes away. They believe the infection has self-healed, and they don’t need treatment. Unfortunately, this is a huge mistake! When you stop feeling pain from a tooth infection, this means that the bacteria have killed off the nerves that transmit pain. This false sense of security will cause more harm long term. One of them being the infection can continue to spread. The other that your tooth is now weak and can be susceptible to fracture. If your teeth get fractures, it will most likely need extracting.
