Is a Root Canal Treatment Painful?

While root canals have a historically bad reputation, the fear that those two small words conjure up is rather unjustified. Yes, you may suffer from a great deal of pain or discomfort before visiting the dentist for root canal treatment —but the procedure itself is carried out with a local anaesthetic, so you won’t feel a thing. It will take a few hours for the anaesthetic to wear off after treatment, after which you should feel as right as rain.

Why Do I Need a Root Canal?

One reason we are constantly told to look after our teeth and have regular check-ups is because something as easy to fix as tooth decay can cause a bigger problem requiring root canal treatment if it is not treated. Tooth decay is caused by acid-producing bacteria, and if left untreated, the cavities the decay cause can become so deep in the tooth that the bacteria can penetrate the soft centre, where blood vessels and nerves are contained.

The acid irritates the soft tissue, causing infection, which then requires root canal treatment to put right and preserve the tooth’s function .

What Is the Procedure for a Root Canal?

There are several stages to a root canal procedure—some of which may or may not be applicable to you.

The first thing to note is that no dentist will carry out a root canal treatment if there is an infection. As the vast majority of patients usually have some degree of pain, swelling and perhaps blood and/or pus oozing from the tooth in question before they present to a dentist, it is more-than-likely that an infection is present. Thus, a course of antibiotics, typically lasting seven days, is required to stem the infection. If you are planning to have root canal treatment in Georgia, you may want to visit a dentist at home so you can start the course before you travel.

The procedure for the root canal starts with a local anaesthetic to numb the mouth. The dentist makes a hole in the top of the tooth so the pulp chamber can be accessed. The process of removing the decaying material begins—first in the pulp chamber, then down each tooth root and then down each root canal. This process may take some time, depending on how many roots your tooth has (between one and three) and how many root canals each tooth root has (one or two).

Once the dentist has removed all the debris from inside your tooth, it will then be thoroughly cleaned, an antibiotic placed in the cavity and the tooth sealed with a temporary filling. This is to make sure that all of the infection has been cleared up before the permanent filling is placed.

You will need to return to your dentist after a few days to have the permanent filling placed. There is a possibility that if your dentist has had to remove a large amount of decay from your tooth it will need strengthening with a crown. If so, your dentist will advise you and arrange to take impressions of your mouth to send to a laboratory where your crown is custom-made and will be ready to fit when you go back for your permanent filling.

Alternatively, if your dentist has CAD/CAM , your crown can be made onsite in your dentist’s office while you wait.
