A tooth consists of three parts:
- The enamel, which is the hard outer coating of a tooth
- The dentine, a softer material that supports the enamel, and
- The pulp, which is made of soft tissue (containing nerves and blood vessels) at the centre of the tooth
Root canal treatment is a safe and effective treatment option to extraction and most patients prefer to save their tooth as it will generally function better than an artificial tooth. As good as an artificial tooth can be, it will never be more than just a substitute for a natural tooth.
Signs of pulpal infection or inflammation include dull aching pain, prolonged pain to hot or cold, tenderness on biting, tooth discolouration, or swelling. Often you may not experience any symptoms at all.
You may experience some post-operative discomfort for the first few days following treatment, particularly if the tooth was infected prior to the procedure. This discomfort can be relieved with the appropriate analgesics.
