Root Canal: How to Deal With Pain Post Procedure

BDS
Dentist
Ask Free Question
When the pulp or soft tissue inside a tooth has been damaged by bacterial infection, a root canal is performed, cleaning the infection and filling in the emptied space.

When performing a root canal, the dentist will remove the nerves and pulp within the tooth, clean the inside of the tooth and seal it.

After this procedure your tooth will not sense anything and should be pain free.However, in some cases you may still experience pain after root canal and there are four main causes of this pain:

1. Phantom pain: Phantom pain is rare when it comes to root canal. This occurs when the nerve leading up to the tooth still behaves like it were connected to the tooth despite the nerve within the tooth being completely removed. The peripheral nerves will need to be treated to resolve this issue.In most cases, these events cannot be prevented.

2. Swelling of ligament around the tooth: One of the signs that you need a root canal is swelling of the gums. Even after the nerves and pulp within the tooth are removed, the ligaments around the infected tooth may still be swollen. This can take some time before the tissue is normal again. In most cases this is the cause for pain after a root canal procedure.

2. Damaged tissue: Part of the root canal procedure is to clean the insides of the tooth. Here the dentist must be very careful to not go beyond the tooth. In some cases the file used to clean the tooth may go beyond the root and damage the tissue there. Another possibility is that the sealant used to fill the tooth may go beyond the root, thus aggravating the tissue. This can take some time to heal and may cause pain.

4. Excess filling: After the tooth has been cleaned, the dentist fills the tooth with a sealant. If excessive sealant is filled in the tooth, it may become taller than the surrounding teeth, which puts extra pressure on the tooth and results in soreness and pain. The dentist will have to remove the excess sealant in order to resolve this issue.

First of all make it clear that the bridge is in place or not. If you are in doubt get examined by dentist. You can also see if bridge is for missing teeth than you will have space left out if by any chance bridge swallowed. Anyhow if you doubt its swallowed it will get passed in stool. But if you fell any symptom like pain get radiographic examination done.

If the permanent teeth is out due to trauma, then preserve it under your tongue or, milk or tender coconut water & rush to a dentist. It is possible to fix the tooth in the socket. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need root anal treatment & permanent fixation of the involved tooth for a month. You may consult me in person. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush.

First you have to quit the habit of gutkha, tobacco products, alcohol and smoking if you take these. Because these things causes leukoplakia. Consult a good dental surgeon for thorough investigation and screening for any transformation. It is a precancerous stage.

Hello , in short veneers are made up of ceramic (which can be of various types), these are fabricated by the dental lab. This might require two or more appointments. Whereas componeeres are pressed composite material, which is fabricated by the dentist on to your tooth in a single appointment. This is a fairly new technique.
