About root canal treatment

Is root canal treatment painful?
When root canal treatment is done with the right hands, it will relieve the pain and will not cause pain. Most of the pain comes from damaged nerve tissue, and root canal treatments involve removing the damaged tissue, disinfecting and sealing the canal.


What happens if I don’t have root canal treatment?
The infected tooth causes the tooth to spread into the root canal and become infected. If left untreated, the infection may spread and an abscess may form. The presence of an abscess is an indication that the infection has spread to the jawbone and surrounding tissues. Sometimes delaying treatment means you have to treat (or lose) teeth on both sides of the original infected tooth. The infection can also spread to your tissues such as the face, floor of the mouth, and even the brain.
