An extraction is truly the last resort!
It consists of the removal of the infected pulp or the nerves that lies within the root of the tooth. It is this infected pulp tissue that causes pain and ultimately abscess. The Dentist will examine the tooth and x-rays before numbing the area around the affected tooth.
If treated early, root canal therapy need not be uncomfortable. With the use of local anesthetics, the entire procedure can be totally painless.
Sometimes when there has been long standing infection or abscess, there may be some soreness associated with the root canal visit. If this should turn out to be true, You will be given specific instructions to follow to minimize the discomfort. When an infection is present, it may be necessary to take an antibiotic. If pain should be present, analgesics may need to be prescribed. The tooth will then possibly need a post and core and a crown in order to re-establish normal form and function. This decision will be based upon several additional factors.
