Damage to the nerves inside your mouth, especially within a tooth, can cause severe discomfort. Endodontics focuses on the treatment of conditions and diseases that affect the dental pulp. Root canals are one of the top treatment options in this field and removes the infected pulp or nerve which alleviates discomfort and gets rid of the infection. The infection could be a result of neglect of basic oral care, decay of the area or a sudden trauma which cracks or even breaks the tooth.
During the root canal, the damaged nerves will be removed along with any infections. It’s an outpatient procedure and one of the most common dental treatments around. It has over a 90% success rate when performed by an experienced endodontist and the recovery time is fast. During your consultation, your dentist will be able to diagnose the problem and give you the best options for treatment. Root canals can usually be performed that same day and utilize sedation dentistry to minimize discomfort.
Endodontists usually do anywhere from 20-50 root canals and other endodontic procedures during the week. Most are quick, and the patient can go home and may experience some discomfort and swelling once the anesthesia wears off. You can use over-the-counter medications to help with the discomfort and your doctor will give you a realistic idea of the timeframe for recovery based on the severity of your condition.
