Almost all of us have experienced a dental cavity or some kind of dental pain at some point in our lives. If a dental cavity goes untreated for too long, it can reach further and further into the tooth, eventually reaching the center of the tooth called the pulp, which is where the blood vessels and the nerves are kept. If an infection manages to reach the pulp, it will cause extreme pain and sensitivity.
The best way to treat this type of infection in the tooth is by receiving root canal therapy. During a root canal, the infection inside the pulp will be cleaned out and the tooth will be sealed back up to avoid further infection or damage.
Each and every toothache is different. Some are small issues while other are signs of a much larger problem. The best way to determine how to treat a toothache is to visit your dentist. However, below are a few signs that a root canal therapy may be the right treatment for you:
While some people in need of a root canal will experience painful symptoms, others may not exhibit symptoms at all.
