Many people continue to suffer the pain and misery of an infected tooth, rather than consider a root canal treatment. There is a common misconception that a root canal treatment is painful during and after the procedure. This is simply not true; it is an outdated perception from the rudimentary days of dentistry. With the advances in dental technology and anesthetics, the procedure is little different that having a tooth filled.
Under the enamel of your tooth is dentin, and in the middle of the dentin is the chamber and canals containing your tooth pulp. The pulp is comprised of nerves, arteries, veins, lymph vessels and connective tissue. When a fracture or decay causes inflammation or infection in the pulp, it can be damaged and even die. This causes an increase of the blood flow and natural antibody activity in the tooth. Pressure can build in the tooth that cannot be released, causing the pain and misery associated with a tooth infection.
Without root canal treatment, the infection will travel, and the bone supporting the tooth will begin to deteriorate. The pain will continue to worsen until the sufferer is driven to seek the help of a dentist. There are only two ways to stop this pain and misery – either a root canal treatment, or extraction. Tooth extraction brings its own set of problems, such as bone loss, and shifting of the adjacent teeth, saving your natural tooth should always be your first choice.
