Root Canal Treatment in Leawood Kansas City

1. Just like the rest of our body, our teeth have nerves and blood vessels that provide sensation and nutrients to them. The areawhere these nerves and blood vessels live are known as root canal(s). However, this is not a completely closed circuit; your teeth are in communication with the rest of your mouth, and therefore your whole body. This is why your whole mouth, face or ear can hurt if you have a tooth infection.
2. Some people experience pain, while others do not, as we are all unique. The pain is a signal from your body telling you that something is wrong, calling attention to the problem as a protective mechanism.
3. If you experience pain and then it goes away, this could mean that the nerve of the tooth has died. Once the nerve is infected or dead, if left untreated, infection builds up near the end of the root inside of the jawbone leading to an abscess and subsequently destroying the surrounding bone around the tooth. At this stage, the pain may or may not return.
4. Root canal treatment is available to repair and save an infected or damaged tooth by removing the nerve and replacing it with a biocompatible material. Root canal treatment can take between 1 –2 appointments, tailored to your specific needs. Your dentist at Restore Dental will make sure that you are completely comfortable throughout the treatment.
