Teeth are filled with nerves and blood vessels inside called “pulp”. Damage to the structure of the tooth can cause infection and damage to the pulp. This can cause pain and may require a Root Canal to remove the affected pulp and prevent the infection from spreading.
Inflammation of the pulp may be caused by:
- Deep tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Repeated dental procedures
- Trauma to the tooth
Root Canals may sound frightening and painful to many people. To ensure you feel no pain during the procedure, your gums will be numbed by an anaesthetic injection.
If you’re experiencing pain, don’t put it off any longer. Get it checked by one of our experienced dentists for your health and peace of mind.
