The most common reason of toothache is infection of the tooth nerve. Other reasons can include wisdom tooth pain, jaw muscle pain, and gum infection.
The tooth nerve infection can be caused by dental decay, dental trauma, tooth crack and deep filling. Root canal therapy will kill the infection of the root canal system and prevent the tooth get re-infected with dental abscess.
The three stages of root canal treatment
The root canal usually involves three stages: remove the inflamed and infected nerve, clean and shape the root canal system to remove bacteria from the tooth, seal the root canal system to prevent bacteria growing again.
The first stage is usually enough to stop the pain and the following two visits are required to fully clean the infection and prevent infection coming back.
The root canal procedure is pain-free as we need to numb the tooth before we start. Within the next 48 hours there is occasionally mild discomfort, which can be easily managed by an over-the-counter pain killer.
After the root canal therapy, the dentist will restore the tooth immediately with a tooth coloured filling, which is recommended to be replaced by dental crown, in some cases to ensure the full chewing function of the tooth, and prevent the tooth from cracking and breaking
