How Do I Know If I Need A Root Canal?

BDS (Gold Medalist)
Dentist, Gurgaon
How Do I Know If I Need A Root Canal?

Most people are understandably concerned when they start to have sensitivity, biting discomfort, or other unusual symptoms. Quickly your mind can jump to the worst case scenario and all of a sudden you’re thinking “I might need a root canal? Oh no!”.

Let’s go over what your dentist looks for and what you can look for to know whether you need a root canal.

SENSITIVITY

Sensitivity to hot or cold can be the first sign that something is going wrong with your tooth… or it can be nothing at all.

When you’re ok…

If something hot or cold hits your tooth and you have a quick, painful sensation that goes away in a couple of seconds, this is fairly normal.

When you need a root canal…

If that same hot or cold hits your tooth and it continues to hurt for 15-20 seconds or even minutes, the nerve is likely in the process of dying and you’ll need a root canal.

PAIN

Tooth pain comes in a variety of ways. There can be aching, shooting, throbbing, stabbing, electrical, burning, tingling, constant, dull, or severe pains. You can have a combination of these.

When you’re ok…

A dull ache or occasional minor sharp pains aren’t terribly unusual. These can be the sign that you have a cavity, bit on something wrong, or are having sinus problems. As long as it doesn’t become severe, these don’t usually signal the need for a root canal.

When you need a root canal…

Constant severe pain that comes on all by itself or after a stimulus of some sort is not normal. This almost always indicates that you need a root canal. Pain that is strong enough to wake you up at night is a great indicator of this as well. Most of the time, this type of pain comes presents as a throbbing severe pain. Most people say it feels like the tooth throbs along with your heartbeat.

SWELLING

Swelling is usually the sign of infection. Figuring out whether it is related to your tooth or not is the big trick in knowing whether you need a root canal.

When you’re ok…

A number of things other than an abscessed tooth can show up as swelling of the gums, lips, or cheek. The most common are related to gum disease of some sort. Gum disease is a chronic, long term infection of the gums around your teeth. Occasionally this infection can get out of control and cause some significant swelling. Other less likely things that can cause swelling include mucoceles, fibromas, other growths, or trauma.

When you need a root canal…

Swelling that is associated with an infection of your tooth (an abscessed tooth) means you most definitely need a root canal. The nerve inside the tooth has died and all this tissue inside has now become infected. The tooth acts as a constant source of infection that affects the bone and other tissues around your tooth. A root canal removes all this infected tissue and allows your body to heal.

If your tooth is abscessed you’ll usually have pain when you touch the tooth or bite with it. The swelling typically occurs next to or around the tooth but can also move further away so that it looks like it is coming from somewhere else.

BITING PAIN

Biting pain is another one of those tricky ones. Biting pain can be related to an infection, trauma, a failing filling, or a cracked tooth.

When you’re ok…

A failing filling or cracked tooth don’t always mean you need a root canal. You may just need a new filling or crown instead. Cracked teeth are more likely to need a root canal in the future though.

Some people also have trauma to teeth as a result of an accident or from grinding and clenching their teeth. This can lead to pain, especially when biting. If you’ve had recent trauma give the tooth some time to settle down before jumping to the conclusion you need a root canal. If you’re a grinder consider investing in a night guard to reduce the force on your teeth.

When you need a root canal…

An infected tooth means you definitely need a root canal. No way out of this one.

A cracked tooth that has developed significant pain, sensitivity, or in which the crack extends into the nerve means that it would need a root canal.

LARGE CAVITIES

Cavities are no fun. Large cavities are even less fun, especially when you end up needing a root canal. X-rays of your tooth can show the rough extent of a cavity but don’t tell the whole story. Your dentist will only know it’s full extent once they clean it all out of the tooth.

When you’re ok…

If the cavity doesn’t extend to the nerve of the tooth once your dentist removes it, then you’re in the clear, at least for the time being. If it is really close to the nerve you may develop symptoms in the future that mean you need a root canal. Most dentists try to avoid going into the nerve space when at all possible in order to give your tooth a chance.

When you need a root canal…

If the cavity is removed and the nerve of the tooth is exposed then it will need a root canal. In very rare cases where the opening to the pulp chamber is only a pinpoint your dentist may do what is known as a pulp cap and try to let the tooth heal itself. Long term, you’ll probably still end up needing a root canal at some point.

This can be a good guide of whether you need a root canal, but it is important to know that there are many times when you could need a root canal without even knowing it. I’ve seen plenty of infected teeth or teeth with extremely large cavities in which the person had no idea there was a problem at all. The best prevention for root canals is good oral hygiene, reducing sugar and acid in your diet, and seeing your dentist consistently so they can catch things early.

Extraction of premolar teeth is required in certain patients during braces treatment. It helps in proper positioning and alignment of your remaining teeth and correction of bite. The desired results would not be achieved if you don't follow the treatment advised to you by the treating Doctor.

What you can do about bad breath?

What you can do about bad breath?
What you can do about bad breath?


It's easy to improve your breath and keep your teeth and gums healthy at the same time. Try these simple steps to make your mouth feel fresh and clean.

1. Brush and floss more often.

Plaque, the sticky buildup on your teeth, collects bacteria that cause bad breath. Trapped food also adds to the problem.

Brush your teeth at least two times each day, and floss at least once. If you're concerned about your breath, do both a little more often.

Don't overdo things, though. If you brush too hard you can wear down your teeth, making them vulnerable to decay.

2. Rinse your mouth out.

Besides freshening your breath, a mouthwash adds extra protection by getting rid of bacteria. A fresh minty taste can make you feel good. But be sure the mouthwash you choose kills the germs that cause bad breath. Don't just cover up the smell. Rinse daily with a good mouthwash and stop bad breath at its source.

You can also help your breath if you swish your mouth with plain water after you eat. It can get rid of food particles that get stuck in your teeth.

3. Scrape your tongue.

The coating that normally forms on your tongue can be a host for smelly bacteria. To get rid of them, gently brush your tongue with your toothbrush.

If your brush is too big to comfortably reach the back of your tongue, try a scraper" they're designed specifically to apply even pressure across the surface of the tongue area. This removes bacteria, food debris, and dead cells that brushing alone can't take care of.

4. Avoid foods that sour your breath.

Onions and garlic are big offenders. But brushing after you eat them doesn't help.

The substances that cause their bad smells make their way into your bloodstream and travel to your lungs, where you breathe them out.

The best way to stop the problem? don't eat them, or at least avoid them before you go to work or see friends.

5. Kick the tobacco habit.

Besides causing cancer, smoking can damage your gums, stain your teeth, and give you bad breath.

Over-the-counter nicotine patches can help tame the urge. If you need a little help, make an appointment with your doctor to talk about quit-smoking programs or prescription medications that can help you give up tobacco for good.

6. Skip after-dinner mints and chew gum instead.

The bacteria in your mouth love sugar. They use it to make acid. This wears down your teeth and causes bad breath. Chew sugarless gum instead.

Gum stimulates saliva, which is the mouth's natural defense mechanism against plaque acids, which cause tooth decay and bad breath.

7. Keep your gums healthy.

Gum disease causes bad breath. Bacteria gather in pockets at the base of teeth, which creates an odor.

If you have gum disease, your dentist may suggest you see a periodontist, who specializes in treating it.

8. Moisten your mouth.

You can get tooth decay and bad breath if you don't make enough saliva. If your mouth is dry, drink plenty of water during the day.

Chew sugarless gum or suck on sugar-free hard candy. Also try a humidifier at night to moisten the air in your house.

9. See your doctor.

If your bad breath continues despite your best efforts, make an appointment with your doctor. He'll check to see if your problems are related to a medical condition.
