Can a Root Canal Actually Be Painless? Shocking Facts Revealed

How scared are you of root canals? what if we tell you. You no longer need to be?
Root canals are easily one of the most dreaded treatments in the world. I have seen patients compare the anxiety they feel before a root canal to things like open heart surgery and labour. The last thing you want to hear on a dental chair is the diagnosis that you need a root canal. The horror stories surrounding this dental treatment range from gruesome to excruciating.

This article is an attempt to dispel the mystery and pain associated with root canals and show you how far we have come from the horrors to the sophistication of the latest technology.

From painful to pleasing

What are root canals really?
In its simplest sense a root canal is a deep filling done by cleaning the infection from the third and innermost layer of the tooth which is made up of nerves and blood vessels.

Our tooth is made up of 3 layers the first 2 are hard and confined layers called enamel and dentin when decay affects these it is very slow to spread and easy to remove and fill within one short session.

The third layer may take 1-3 sessions to clean as the infection may have spread or collected in the supporting tooth structures.

Why are root canals considered painful?

The 3rd layer of our tooth is a nerve chamber containing soft nerves and blood vessels in communication with the rest of our body.

This is the place that communicates pain to our brain and this is why when decay or bacteria hit this soft deeper layer we experience sharp shooting pain.

Top 3 reasons why root canals used to be painful


    Improper or inadequate anesthesia to numb the inflamed nerve
    Mechanical instrumentation to manually pull out the nerve which we now dissolve and clean with automated machines
    Lack of the right medications to use within the tooth.


What happens to root canal infections if left untreated?
If this pain is suppressed with medication and not treated it can lead to an infection spreading within the bone which may later lead to a swelling with pus etc.

If this infection is left within it can eat into the supporting bone and eventually infect or affect the adjacent teeth as well.

My left side lower premolar teeth was capped about a year back as its cavity was almost touching the nerve bed. The dentist instead to doing root canal suggested to just cap the teeth. Till now it was okay, but now I can feel some sensation in my gum when I bite anything hard with that teeth. It's not pain, but it does wordy me. What do you suggest? can they take off the cap, do a root canal and refix the cap?

Hi, you may have infection in periapical region. Rct is very important step when the pulp is exposed. You need to be investigated. Go to the dentist who did it. Get rct done. You need some antibiotic and anti inflammatory medications. You can consult me.

yes tmds can cause tinnitus and headaches but definitely not blurred vision. cause can be varying from attrition to irregular bite( malocclusion). in such conditions splints play significant role.

I am 19 years old. Is it necessary to take off premolars in order to fix braces? Is it safe plucking off teeth?

It depends on each cases, some cases require extraction and some cases does not require extraction, so kindly visit Orthodontist first so that he evaluate and come to devotion to remove or not. Teeth extraction is of course safe and a pain less procedure, if it is not safe then doctors don't advise for you :)

Pyorrhoea is a condition of infected gums. To know the extent and severity of disease you must get one opg x ray done. Scaling and polishing is done to start the treatment. If required go for flap therapy and bone graft.

The most helpfull thing for leaving a habit is will power. If you have strong determination you can achieve it. However for some people need som substitutes specially incase of tobaco. Nicotene substituted chewing gums can help you. Some substitutes can help you in avoiding withdrawl symptoms.

These tooth paste only provide temporary solution - when you use them you get relief, but does not solve the root cause that causes sensitivity. Sensitivity occurs due to removal of outer layer of tooth, micro fracture of teeth of due to cavity present. You need to visit a dentist and find out the exact cause. In simple cases a filling will solve the problem.

Brush your teeth regularly and get cleaning done. Yellow patches can be removed using composite veneers or porcelain laminates. Ask your dentist.

The bacteria that cause decay only eat sugar. Avoid processed foods and beverages that add additional sugar. Brush twice a day. Floss before bedtime.

Hello, bad smell from mouth could be because of deposits or food lodgement between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. It could also be because of cold, acidity, stomach problems, not drinking enough water, not eating or fasting for long intervals. Brush twice daily, floss regularly. You can avoid it by rinsing after every 1-2 hours.

If sufficient parts of your teeth are still intact then we can remove the carious part and do the filling and build up your tooth with composite. If the damage is more you can go wid post and core. Inform, if you have queries.
