The reason why this treatment is performed is that the pulp of your tooth, which is located right next to the nerve, on the inside, has become either inflamed, infected, or damaged. As a result, you experience pain, which can range from mild to excruciating, and which is most obvious when you chew with or apply pressure to the tooth. Sensitivity to foods and drinks that are hot or cold is also common. Other possible symptoms are tooth discoloration or gum tenderness. As for what leads to the inflammation, infection, or damage in the first place, there are various causes. If your tooth's protective barriers have been breached, such as through a cavity, loose or lost filling, or a chipped or cracked tooth, bacteria gets inside and inflammation or infection follow. But you can also need our root canal Ridgewood
because of dental trauma, which typically occurs when you suffer an accident, injury, or you are in a physical altercation. In such cases, your tooth may become dislodged from its socket, either partially or completely, and the damage that has resulted must be remedied. Compared to having the tooth extracted, root canal therapy is far preferable. Losing a tooth creates problems that can only be addressed with the time, cost, and fuss of replacing the tooth.
