Tooth and mouth pain is an incredibly difficult experience in any case. Often, tooth and mouth pain comes on without warning. It can be very difficult to identify the cause of this kind of pain, and people often decide not to visit a dentist or another medical health professional even when they are in tremendous pain.

While there are many different sources of tooth and gum pain, it is important to determine what the cause of tooth and gum pain is in order to develop an appropriate treatment regimen. While some toothaches can be perfectly innocuous and may end without any medical treatment, others may persist and present serious medical problems.

If a tooth pain or toothache persists for more than a few days, it is important to begin to consider the source of the pain. When pain in a tooth is chronic and consistent, it is likely that the tooth is infected.

In some cases, the cause of an infection in a tooth is obvious. For people with poor dental hygiene, the lack of cleanliness can lead to bacteria and plaque buildup. In this case, the infection primarily affects the external enamel of the tooth or the gum area and the source of the infection is clear.

In other cases, however, the cause of an infection on a tooth is not quite as obvious. Some tooth infections can occur primarily on the interior of the tooth, in an area known as the pulp. The pulp, or the pulp chamber, is the soft interior of the tooth that contains the central nerve of the tooth.

An infection in the pulp chamber can be extremely painful and requires medical attention. Typically, a specialized dental practitioner called a root canal dentist 11230 will perform a procedure known as a root canal to address the infection in the pulp chamber.

During a root canal procedure, the root canal dentist 11230 drills a hole in the infected tooth and removes the infected nerve, bacteria, and all of the contents of the pulp chamber. Depending on the structure of the tooth and the location of the root canal, the root canal doctor may not be able to close the opening in the infected tooth and therefore may have to schedule a second appointment after the initial drilling to cap the tooth.

In either case, the root canal dentist 11230 will cap the newly hollowed tooth at the end of a successful root canal procedure. Once this procedure has been completed, the patient will not feel any more pain associated with the infection of the pulp chamber. Our doctors at Empire Dental NY are specially trained to complete root canal surgery as quickly and painlessly as possible.

This easy procedure can minimize the intense pain of a chronic tooth infection in just a few short procedures. After the surgery is completed, the treated tooth can function normally as it used to. Also, a tooth treated in a root canal often does not appear any different than an untreated tooth after the surgery has been completed.
