Toothaches are much more than an annoyance, they are often an indicator of a serious problem happening within your teeth. Whether the pain only happens when you enjoy a hot or cold drink, or it wakes you in the middle of the night in agony, these can by symptoms of a root canal infection occurring deep within the nerves and pulp of your tooth. These infections do not go anyway on their own. They require special treatment from your local Sunnyside dental office at Michael J Weiss & Associates.
Root canal infections can happen for a whole host of reasons, but they are always caused by bacteria entering the inside of your tooth. In some cases this occurs through a physical injury to the face or jaw, which causes trauma to your oral cavities. If you have received numerous dental procedures to the same area of your mouth, this can cause the area to become sensitive and irritated, making it easy for bacteria to enter the inner workings of your tooth or teeth. However, the most common cause for a root canal infection is simple tooth decay, which occurs from poor dental hygiene. The process of tooth decay wears down the hardened surface of your teeth, causing fissures and openings in your dentin to form. The bacteria which naturally occurs in your mouth then gets inside and causes an infection, which requires root canal therapy from your Sunnyside dental office for proper treatment.
