Root Canals Can Relieve Pain and Save Your Tooth

A painful, throbbing sensation in a tooth is a sign that something is wrong. Many times, the problem is an infection inside the tooth that is causing intense pain. Upon diagnosis, a root canal may be recommended to relieve the pain and save the tooth. As with most infections, tooth infections will not go away without experienced intervention.

Root Canals Explained


A Root Canal Procedure Can Relieve Tooth Pain

A root canal is a safe, straightforward, comfortable procedure that is typically pain-free thanks to improved technologies and numbing or sedation options. Statistics indicate that more than 22 million root canals are performed each year*, making them a frequent, normal occurrence. During root canal therapy, the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sanitized, and infected pulp is removed. The tooth is then filled with a material that seals the area to avoid further risk of infection.
Know common tooth infection indicators:

  • Pain and aching at the site of the tooth
  • Sudden discoloration of a tooth unassociated with trauma
  • Intense sensations when tooth is exposed to heat or cold
  • Swollen, tender gums
  • A bump that looks like a pimple on the gums near the tooth

Infected Teeth Can Lead to Widespread Medical Issues

When choosing a dentist to evaluate your tooth and possibly perform a root canal, look for one who uses the latest root canal therapy technologies. Make a call as soon as possible to avoid the dangers associated with ignoring an infected tooth:

  • Pain that worsens
  • Loss of a natural, otherwise healthy tooth
  • Lowered quality of life
  • Expensive future dental and medical procedures
  • Potential for systemic effects, such as infection that spreads through the bloodstream to other parts of the body


Why live with mouth discomfort when you can enjoy daily activities including eating and speaking without pain?
