Oral hygiene can cause uncertainty if these symptoms are experienced. Its important to always get regular checks with 6 months interval to look for any possible signs of infection or decay. Being active with oral health will save you a lot of money and time in the long run. If you wait till you experience a lot of pain, then it will cost you a lot of money and require high pain tolerance.
Root canal treatment has a high success rate and is extremely safe. This is because dentists now have access to safety technology and reliable equipment. Over the years, root canal treatments have become less painful. The dentist will inject an anesthetic so the nerves become numb and you barely feel anything. The dentist will then proceed to extract toxic bacteria and the infected pulp. Then the inside of the tooth will be cleaned. The durable material will be sealed to the tooth and finally, a porcelain crown will be added. Sedation is also provided if asked, to make you feel relaxed.
It’s common to experience pain right after the treatment. You can always take precautionary measures to let the treatment heal. Keep practicing oral hygiene and avoid chewing or biting since it adds pressure on the treated tooth. Include medications like Advil and Tylenol in your routine.
