The pulp is a soft tissue that contains nerves and blood vessels and can become infected due to decay, trauma, or a deep filling. Symptoms may include pain, sensitivity to temperature, discolouration, metallic taste, gum tenderness, or swelling.
Although root canal therapy has a reputation for being painful, the procedure should be no more uncomfortable than having a normal filling.
If looked after properly, with regular brushing and flossing, your root canal-treated tooth should stay trouble-free and provide a long-lasting repair. Even though the pulp has been removed, the tooth will stay intact because the canals have been sealed to prevent re-infection. Regular check-ups are also recommended so any problems can be detected early.
