Prompt treatment at the earliest sign of pain in the tooth is the best way to preserve the unaffected areas of the tooth. The treatment starts with a local anesthesia that numbs the area around the tooth insuring that you feel no pain throughout the procedure. Because the nerve roots are removed you will feel no pain after the procedure is completed. By preserving the tooth and capping it your smile and bite are preserved.
The root canals of your teeth are made up of nerves and blood vessels which provide oxygen and nutrients to keep them healthy. When your teeth decay the damage slowly progresses to the root canals a ecting the nerves and blood vessels. This results in infection and inflammation and usually results in severe pain and swelling. A risk of severe infection and tooth abscess forming increases the longer you avoid repair.
