Can a Root Canal Actually Be Painless? Shocking Facts Revealed

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.

As you are suffering from high blood sugar with high BP along with increased creatinine it is better to start with rapid insulin both every breakfast, lunch, dinner and at bed time lantus can be taken according to your blood sugar levels, after getting near normal sugar levels with creatinine levels then you can take tablet with minimal dose of insulin. This line of management will improve your overall general condition. Do not forget to follow timely food intake with reduced salt and oil along with proper physical activity. You should check blood sugars with glucometer before breakfast, lunch and dinner accordingly insulin dose to be planned, whenever you get low sugar that to be corrected with some snacks like, Marie lite biscuits and other easily digestible food, next dose of insulin should be reduced one or 2 units of insulin. I think this management will give good improvement. All the best.

When prescribed a course of antibiotics, always complete the course without fail. Antibiotics, unlike other drugs, affects the microbes in your body. Not completing a course may cause drug resistance and you may not recover fully from that infection.

I am suffering from right nose infection bleeding and become hard in side nose and I can' t smell anything.

It can be due to some mass or polyp in the nose which can only be diagnosed after proper examination including Nasal Endoscopy and CT scan. So visit an ENT specialist.

the length of vagina is about 6 inch, the outer 2 inch is most sensitive, the inner 4 inch being insensitive. To arouse a female one needs to stimulate only the outer lips and the outer 2 inch of vagina so man needs 2 inches of erect penis to satisfy a females. slight curveture is normal if your size more then 4 incha then you should avoid any medicine

Persistent headache while reading or watching tv can be due to refractive error. Get your vision checked first and wear spectacles accordingly. If vision is normal other causes of headache need to be looked for like tension headache, migraine, sinusitis, cervical spine problems, tumor, infection etc. For this details of your headache pattern is required. Follow these lifestyle changes to avoid headache 1. Maintain regular sleep wake cycle, even on holiday's. 2. Don't skip meals. Take regular healthy diet with adequate fluids 3.

You maybe suffering from pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.

10 Most Common Headache Triggers

10 Most Common Headache Triggers

10 Most Common Headache Triggers

It's not just loud music or a tight deadline or even an impending visit from your mother-in-law. With so much going on, it can be hard to avoid headaches, but there are a few common (and unexpected) things you can learn to avoid to prevent pain in the future.

10 / Anxiety

Stress can take a toll on you. Breathe, relax and take a stroll.

9 / Glare

Brightness from your computer screen, sunlight or overhead lights can make things painful. Turn it down and try adding a desk lamp.

8 / Noise

It's not just loud, repetitive sounds. Even lower level on continuous noise can hurt. Calming music and headphones may help.

7 / Eating + Sleeping Patterns

Eat when you're hungry. Sleep enough (not too much or too little), and don't sleep in an odd position in a cold room - it can make your muscles spasm.

6 / Medication

Some prescription medications may have the potential to trigger a headache. If you notice an increase, talk to your doctor.

5 / Physical Activity

Take it easy in the gym. Pushing too hard can result in an exertional headache from the swelling of blood vessels in your head, neck, and scalp.

4 / Lack of Physical Activity

Even though over-exertion can increase your risk for headaches, staying sedentary doesn't help either. As with most things in life, moderation is key. Talk to your doctor before beginning or revising any exercise regimen.

3 / Posture

Your mom was right! Sit up straight to keep blood flowing (and move around when you can if you spend extended periods of time bent over a desk).

2 / Hormones

When estrogen levels drop (especially right before your period), you may be more likely to get a headache. Keep track of your cycle and plan when you can.

1 / Food Sensitivities

Food and drink release neurotransmitters, which can cause headaches in some people. Triggers include aspartame, caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, cheese and more.

'So what should I do?'
Well, everybody is different. But knowing what works for you (and what doesn't) can help you avoid headaches in the future. Listen to your body. It's smarter than you think! Experiment and see what works for you.

I am suffering from dry and cough from one month and feeling very lazy please give me some medicine.

It is ok but remember, excess of everything is bad. So, don't always keep thinking of sex. Devote more time in your work and recreation. If you still have problems, tell me !
