Endodontic treatment

endodontic treatment also known as Root canal treatment, is a dental
procedure in which the diseased or damaged pulp (central core) of a
tooth is removed and the inside areas (the pulp chamber and root canals)
are filled and sealed.

An inflamed or infected pulp is called pulpitis. It is the most
common cause of a toothache. To relieve the pain and prevent further
complications, the tooth may be extracted (surgically removed) or saved
by root canal treatment (a better option).

    Symptoms

  • severe pain while chewing, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, or a darkening of the tooth.
  • Swelling and tenderness of the gums or pimples appearing on the gums are also common symptoms.

However, it is also possible that no symptoms will be noticed. The
dentist will take an x ray of the tooth to determine if there is any
sign of infection in the surrounding bone.
