When your tooth pulp is infected or injured, your dentist will recommend you undergo a root canal treatment.

What does root canal treatment involve?

After the area is numbed, your dentist will make a small opening in the tooth to clean out the infected pulp using a small file.

Next, your dentist will disinfect the tooth, and then finally seal the cavity. The tooth’s appearance and function are restored with a filling or a dental crown.

How do I know if I might need a root canal treatment?

Some of the common signs of dental pulp infection are:

  • Aching in the tooth
  • Discomfort in the jaw, cheek, or ear area
  • Swelling around the cheek or jaw area
  • Trouble chewing food properly
  • Increased tooth sensitivity to hot and cold foods

How will I feel after the procedure?

After your root canal treatment, you may feel some slight soreness around the affected region, but this should dissipate within a couple of days.

You can manage any discomfort using over-the-counter painkillers.
