Root canal to me was deathbed situation until I came across dentist in Bramingham, who busted this bubble.
A root canal treatment is conducted for saving your tooth from eradication after all something is better than no toothing.
This treatment is suggested when the nerve carrying blood to the tooth (pulp) is infected and decayed.
Reason for this nerve to be, infected – At times due to trauma the nerve present inside your tooth dies and bacteria is present around breeds on this as their food and give birth to more bugs. When ignored by you over a period these bugs start dwelling in places between your jawbones and tooth that is called abscess. Your white blood cells keep fighting and filling this invasion by debugging these bacterial bugs but are unable to locate the root cause, which is your tooth.
When there is no way to remove and kill these bugs, your tooth starts paining badly giving birth to sever abscess where your dentist has two options – 1) To remove your tooth permanently or 2) Do a root canal surgery.
It is safe to treat the root of tooth, than having a hollow space and one less tooth for lifetime. Tooth is first, cleansed, sterilized from deep inside and then a cap is, positioned in to stop the bacterial bugs accumulating over and again.
Feeling during the treatment, most of us tend to be horrified on hearing a friend or close one undergoing a root canal treatment, similar was with me when I heard my Endodontist suggesting a root clean option.
Thank god, Endodontist is one of great dental doctor in UK who comforted me at each seating and step by explain and sharing how my tooth is being treated for good. This gesture made my complete Endodontic surgery procedure less painful and here I am motivated to share all about root canal.
Most of our fear is eternal, as we undergo treatment most of time the area, treated is numb and cap if rubber cap makes tooth work normally. This you would know once your gives a soft munch to check its functioning. The pain is inevitable for days until tooth is healed rest in long run it is in our hands to maintain proper care and a regularly check with Endodontist.
