What Is Causing Your Dental Pain?
Some cases of tooth pain are caused by a tooth infection. This occurs when a group of bacteria multiply inside the root canal, or inner chamber of a tooth. This can cause the tissue inside the tooth to swell, pressing on nerves there, which causes pain.
The pain itself is not the only problem. A bacterial infection inside a tooth can cause the walls of the tooth to deteriorate. Also, the infection could spread to other teeth. It can also cause:
- A fever.
- Red or swollen gums.
- Feelings of pressure in or around a tooth.
- Unusual tastes in the mouth.
- A swollen face.
It is important to stop and resolve a tooth infection in the root canal quickly. If you have any of these symptoms, including tooth pain or discomfort in a tooth, let us treat the cause of it at Smileology.
How Does a Root Canal Treatment Work?
A root canal treatment takes care of the problem by removing the infection from a tooth. Your dentist will:
- Give you appropriate sedation to make you comfortable.
- Use tools to access the inner chamber of the tooth.
- Clean out the bacteria and tissue, ensuring it is disinfected.
- Seal the tooth.
- Bond a dental crown to the tooth to cover its top and sides.
Our Niceville office particularly prides themselves on finishing this whole process in two hours or less! This will let you get back to your favorite Northwest Florida activities quickly—with that tooth protected from any further infection.
