5 Signs That You May Need a Root Canal Treatment
A decaying tooth can become a severe dental
problem if left untreated for a long time. A
decayed tooth mostly needed to be extracted by
the dentists in Somerset NJ which is a painful
procedure. However, Root Canal Treatment (RCT)
can be the best solution to treat a decaying
tooth. What is a Root Canal? Root canal
treatment is needed when a tooths pulp tissues
become inflamed or infected. The main purpose of
this treatment is to repair and save a decaying
tooth. During CTC, dentists remove the nerve and
pulp and following that they clean and seal the
interior part of the tooth. A root canal helps to
treat the diseased tissues and preserves the
remaining tooth.
This type of treatment can be done by a general
dentist or a specialized endodontist. Normally,
all the dentists receive some formal training to
perform root canals and with experience and
clinical practice, they become proficient in
completing the procedure successfully. 5 Signs
You Need A RCT Millions of cases related to
tooth-decay occur every year in the US. A
deteriorated tooth can develop infections that
progress faster and affect other parts of your
body. You need early professional dental care
Somerset to save your tooth from complete
removal. Here are the five signs that you may
need a root canal 1. Severe pain - Whenever you
feel a toothache, which is not a definitive
indicator that you require extraction or you need
to undergo a root canal. It sometimes depends on
the intensity of pain. When the pain becomes
unbearable enough to prevent you from eating or
drinking, then you should see your dentist as
soon as possible for professional dental care. He
will check whether or not there is any cavity
buildup that has caused the inflammation or
infection in the tooth's blood vessels, pulp, and
2. Swelling  Swelling around the face is
probably the most apparent indication that you
may need an RCT. Sometimes you notice swelling
due to damaged teeth that can be restored with
the help of orthodontics Somerset NJ. 3. Gum
boils - Also known as oral fistula, gum boils are
a pimple-like lesion in the gum tissues, which
becomes a drain for accumulated pus. The size of
these gum boils may increase or decrease
depending on the type of dental care a patient
opts for. You are most likely to experience a bad
taste because gum boils act as a drain for
pus. 4. Sensitivity to hot and cold foods  When
you start feeling persistent pain while drinking
beverages or eating hot and cold foods, this
maybe a red flag. 5. Problems with biting and
chewing - If you are experiencing constant
discomfort and pain when biting or chewing your
food, and also seeing signs of swelling in the
region then you need to schedule an appointment
with your dentist immediately. You can
see orthodontics specialists for the treatment of
misaligned teeth or jaw.
Bad Dental Habits You Should Avoid
There are numerous crisp and crunchy foods that
we love to eat. Some yield great health benefits
e.g. apples and some are truly detrimental e.g.
hard candies. You may have been advised a lot of
time since your childhood to avoid too many
candies, chocolates, and sugary drinks. The
reason is simple. When you continuously eat
sugary or sticky food for a long period, plaque
bacteria use those remaining sugar particles that
stuck between your teeth to produce acid that
ultimately attacks your tooth enamel and damage
your teeth. So if you ask your Somerset family
dentistry for some best dental advice, you will
probably get suggestions to avoid sticky food and
follow regular dental care.
1 - Smoking Smoking is injurious to health! You
will barely meet a person who smokes and has
good-looking tusks. Any cigarette you are an
addict to contains tobacco that directly affects
the saliva production and flow in the mouth. So
if youre a smoker, try hard to drop it from
today to prevent getting a periodontal disease
very soon. 2 - Teeth Grinding Teeth grinding
also known as bruxism can lead to sensitivity
and cracks in teeth and can also put a strain on
your jaws that can create pain and swell in jaw
joints and muscles. Teeth grinding is mostly
caused by an abnormal bite, crooked teeth or
anxiety/stress and you should see family
dentistry for medication and proper solution.
3 Brushing too hard Brushing your teeth two
times a day is a part of good routine dental
care. But doing it too hard will put weight and
strain on gums and teeth. Toothbrush bristles
should be soft, medium, and firm to remove plaque
from the tooth surface but not so stiff that it
could lead to other dental problems. 4 Eating
hard and sticky food Minimize the amount of hard
and sugary foods you eat the sugar can cause
tooth decay and other related problems. 5
Biting/sucking non-food Items Your kid may have a
tendency of thumbsucking that he/she is no way
ready to give it up soon. Your dentist may help
with some dental practice. However, chewing and
biting fingernails, pens, and other stuff that is
not food can be found in any age of people.
Many people are unaware that a lot of things that
they do on a daily basis can affect their teeths
well-being. Bad oral habits can cause harm and
damage not only to the teeth but also to the
other parts of the mouth. Whenever you feel
toothache or sensation, you should always contact
a qualified dentist and he/she will treat you
with the appropriate Somerset dental practice.
