Millions of root canals are carried out each and every year. When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected or abscessed due to decay, a crack or even trauma, a Root Canal Carrollton may be the best way to preserve the tooth.
The living portion of a tooth is composed of nerves and blood vessels. It is enclosed in the pulp chamber of the tooth, which is a space found inside the center of the tooth.
The pulp extends into the roots, and it becomes infected or dies for a variety of reasons:
Deep fillings — fillings that were placed in close proximity to the pulp chamber because of tooth decay or even a tooth fracture
Decay — bacteria resulting in tooth decay infects the pulp.
Trauma — a traumatic injury may cause inflammation of the pulp.
Inexplicable — sometimes the pulp can become inflamed and can die for no visible reason.
Symptoms of a tooth that may need a root canal:
Prolonged sensitivity or even pain to hot or cold temperatures, which can be a throbbing feeling.
Toothache pain so extreme it awakens you while sleeping.
Pain when biting or chewing.
Discoloration of the tooth.
Swelling and tenderness on the affected or nearby gums that when pressed may have blood or pus discharge.
Pain that commences in one tooth and propagates to other areas of the jaw or even the head.
