Contrary to popular belief root canal treatment or endodontics is usually not painful when correctly done. It is a procedure performed on the elongated structure called the root buried inside the jaw bone and anchors the tooth in position. The root of a tooth comprises a dental pulp, a soft living tissue at the centre of the tooth with nerve cells and blood vessels and a hard cementum encasing the dental pulp.
The dental pulp provides blood and other materials needed to create and grow teeth. However, they are susceptible to infections, injury and damage, when this occurs they can be removed to save the infected tooth from decay through a procedure known as root canal therapy. Left untreated, then they fester and cause gum disease.
If you experience pain around your tooth, There is a probability that your dental pulp is infected with a bacteria and has become inflamed and sensitive because the bacteria keeps multiplying.
