Root canal treatment
Root canal treatments are indicated in the case of irreversible nerve inflammation , such as spontaneous pain or necrosis, which can lead to infection.
The extirpation of tooth nerve is performed under anesthesia, and then we proceed with the closure of the root canal containing the nerve by means of a cement.
Pain can occur following this treatment, and can last up to a week or two.
These pains occur most often as a pain due to pressure and to chewing on the treated tooth.
If symptoms persist or increase after a week to 10 days, it would be better to inform your dentist.
