Teeth Pain – Do You Need a Root Canal?

August 14, 2017 by Dr. Shrenik Parmar4

Do you recall that dreaded feeling of a sharp tooth pain in your mouth whenever you have something sweet or hot? Yes, that horrible feeling which no one likes.

You immediately picturized going to the dentist, getting that tooth filling done or worse the doctor tells you to do a root canal!!!

Now what? You fear it even more! But is it that bad? Well, certainly not.

The fear around root canal is surely over hyped. But it is not at all that worse. In fact, the doctor is, on the contrary, eliminating your pain in the long run. It also doesn’t mean that when immediately you have a tooth pain you have to get a root canal done. You have tooth filling and gum treatments are also available which can get the job done.

But in some cases, it is imperative to get a root canal done for the betterment of your dental health.

The most common causes of a root canal are

  • Damage or complete tooth decay
  • Chipped teeth
  • Any kind of disease.

So what are the parameters on which a root canal is done?

  • Symptom 1

You have a reasonable toothache when having extremely cold or hot food.

  • Symptom 2

You have pain chewing or biting food. Also, you notice some slight swelling.

  • Symptom 3

You suddenly wake up in the night with a sharp pain in your teeth and feel the need of taking a painkiller.

  • Symptom 4

You have a bubble on your gum which certainly doesn’t look good and when pressed it you have an intolerable toothache.

  • Symptom 5

You have a pain which starts in one part of your tooth which gradually spreads to the other areas of the mouth such as the jaw, ears and eventually your head.

In such cases, you should not waste much time and get a root canal treatment done.

The Procedure

 It is a multi-step dental procedure which includes removing the infected tooth pulp from the rest of the teeth and sealing it with a cap to keep it secured. Even though it is a multi-step procedure you can be rest assured because as mentioned above it is only going to help you in the long run.

In some cases, however, there may not be a pain in your teeth but due to some infection of some sort, your teeth may be performing internal degradation. So it is very necessary to take care of your mouth and consult a good dentist.

We at Dental Sphere pride ourselves in giving the correct and accurate treatments to our patients with utmost care. You can be rest assured that under the able guidance of our skilled dentists you will get the best our clinic.
