A root canal is necessary when there is pain related to the pulp of the tooth becoming infected and necrotic (dying). This situation can be caused by deep decay, several dental procedures that have been performed on the tooth, or a very deep crack or chip in the tooth that exposes the pulp.
At Dr. Roze Biodental clinic, we use the latest endodontic technologies to perform a root canal treatment – a specially designed microscope gives our specialists a very high level of visibility and laser technology allows for a bacteria-free treatment that is quickly and easily performed.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you should see your specialist right away, as a root canal treatment may be the solution to your problem and leaving it may lead to a serious condition such as abscessing and severe infection:
- Sensitivity to heat or cold
- Tenderness on chewing
- Discolouration of the tooth
- Swelling around the tooth
WHY IS A ROOT CANAL TREATMENT DONE ?
If the pulp of your tooth is infected, it is imperative that it is removed in order to stop the infection from spreading, causing serious problems and abscessing. The procedure also eliminates the pain that you have been suffering.
