Root canals are synonymous with pain. This condition can lead to a lot of discomfort and many people believe that a root canal procedure is painful, but living with the condition is even more so. A root canal infection can have dire consequences, affecting your gums, surrounding teeth and even the jawbone. Since this condition is an infection of the nerve end of the tooth, any contact is painful and makes eating and drinking incredibly difficult and excruciating. If you have any tooth pain, or sudden unusual symptoms, it is important that you make an appointment at our Foxboro dental office right away. Dr. Arkady Naiman is here at Advanced Dental Care to address any of your dental needs, pinpoint the cause of any pain or discomfort, and treat it with the utmost care.
There are plenty of symptoms that may indicate you have an infected tooth root. You may begin to experience a constant headache and/or aching from the area of the infection that comes and goes or persists. You may also feel pain when eating or drinking hot or cold foods or drinks at the site of the infection. Additionally, you may notice an increased sensitivity in general, whether it is while eating, when air hits the spot in your mouth, or throughout the day. It is extremely important that you schedule an appointment with us here at Advanced Dental Care at the first signs of any of these symptoms. The sooner your root canal infection is treated, the better. If this is left untreated, you will undoubtedly experience more, persistent and increased pain and risk the spread of infection to other areas of the mouth. Upon your visit here at our Foxboro dental office, Dr. Naiman will thoroughly examine your mouth to assess the situation. Upon executing the procedure, you will be given a local anesthesia to help numb the pain and lessen discomfort. Dr. Naiman will then remove the infected pulp and inflamed tissue. He will then begin smoothing the cavity in the center of the tooth before filling. This filling will prevent any future decay.
Each situation is different and depends on the patient. Here at Advanced Dental Care, Dr. Naiman is dedicated to treating each patient with individual attention and care in order to bring the best dental care possible. Visit our Foxboro dental office at the first sign of any painful or unusual symptoms to preserve your health and wellbeing today.
