Root canal is in the core of a tooth, which contain the tooth’s vessels and nerves. Root canal problems can present in many ways. Common symptoms of root canal problems include: pain, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling in your gums. Root canal problems may also have little or no pain. This doesn’t mean the problem is resolved. The nerve may have died and is not able to transmit pain signals.

Root canal treatment usually takes one to two appointments to complete. During the visit, local anesthesia is used to numb the affected area. The root canal is then cleaned to remove dead and infected tissues. Once cleaned, the root canal is filled and sealed with a temporary filling. If the tooth is vulnerable and may suffer from damage, the dentist will recommend a crown to cover the tooth for strength and protection.
