Root Canal

Infographic of a root canal procedure being performed on a tooth. There are several remedies for treating infected teeth. Root canal treatment is one technique that can help to save your damaged tooth. Root canal treatment involves removal of the infected tissues of your tooth, such as the pulp, to stop further damage to you tooth and other soft tissues such as your gums. Our dental experts at Forest Grove Dental Studio have the required expertise to perform root canal treatment using safe techniques. We have many years of experience offering root canals for patients who wanted to save their teeth from further loss. If you are considering root canal treatment, there are several facts that can help you understand what happens in the process and whether it is the right treatment option for you.

Do Not Fail To Come To the Clinic if Your Pain Subsides

Many patients make the mistake of failing to see the dentist just because their toothache stopped. You experience toothache when you have an infected tooth because the pulp of you tooth has blood vessels and nerves. When the pain stops it is likely caused by the pulp dying. People often think that the pain subsides because the infection stopped. However this is not the case, and it is a sign that the problem is progressing and can cause loss of your tooth in the process. Once the infection spreads to your roots you will get further symptoms such as facial swelling and pus oozing from your gums. Seek immediate medical attention even if your toothache stops, in order to halt the progression of your infection.

Root Canal Treatment Is Not Painful

One thing that makes people fear root canal treatment is because they associate the procedure with pain. This is not the case since there is no pain felt while receiving the treatment. Modern advancements in dentistry has provided dentists with safe and pain-free techniques of administering the treatment. The dental procedure is meant to relieve you from pain and not necessarily to cause more of it. Our dental experts apply a local anesthetic that numbs the affected area which goes a long way in ensuring that you will not feel pain during the session. In most cases the procedure will feel more like having a filling treatment to the affected area.

Root Canal Surgery Is Not Permanent

Once you get your root canal treatment it does not mean that you should stop coming in for regular dental checkups or to discontinue your dental hygiene habits such as flossing and brushing. You will need to care for your teeth and gums to ensure that you do not get further infections to your gums and teeth.
