Each of your natural teeth has a root canal which stores the tooth’s nerve and soft tissue. If the nerve or soft tissue becomes damaged, bacteria can begin to grow, causing an infected or abscessed tooth. The infection can spread elsewhere, and also lead to bone loss in the adjacent area. Symptoms of an infection in the root canal can include severe toothache, lasting oversensitivity to hot or cold temperatures and swelling and discomfort in the gum.
Root canal treatment is the best way to overcome the problem.
The caring and skilled dentists at Sydney’s DentalFresh are very experienced in root canal treatment and can assess the state of your tooth and answer all your questions.
