Root canal treatment is one of the most painful, yet important dental treatments that dentists perform. A root canal in Newmarket is, according to most dentists, a treatment which cannot be avoided at any cost and should be performed upon an infected tooth as soon as possible. Waiting for too long after the infection has been detected by a dentist can lead to the infected tooth becoming worse- to the point where a tooth extraction remains as the only option.
Thus it is imperative to answer a few questions before going in for a root canal in Newmarket. In order to save the tooth, the pulp of the tooth, which has been infected with bacteria, must be removed and replaced with a healthy pulp. This is the only way in which the root canal treatment is successful.
In most cases, a dentist in Newmarket would perform a series of his own checks to determine whether a root canal treatment is desirable and required for a patient. However, often times there are quite a few parameters by which it can become plain and obvious to the patient that a root canal treatment might be needed, so that the process of visiting a dental clinic and going through the necessary tests to undergo a root canal in Newmarket can be fastened.
For certain obvious signs that one needs to visit a dentist for a root canal treatment, here are some common ones:
- Extreme pain in and around the infected tooth. This pain varies from person to person, but is usually characterized by a sharp pain while eating something hard.
- Sensitivity in the infected tooth and gums. Hot or cold foods will be difficult to eat, as they cause an uncomfortable sensation called sensitivity.
