Tooth pain / Sensitivity
Depending upon the severity of the dental cavity, your dentist will recommend a tooth filling/deep filling or a root canal. But before engaging in any type of dental work, it’s important to get your facts straightened out!
Stage 1 and 2 can be managed by filling
At The Smile Architect Dental Care, we use tooth coloured or white fillings, which help you smile your natural smile without any hesitation. While providing strength and excellent durability, these are used to treat cavities, fractures, and chipped teeth.
How is it done?
The decayed part of the tooth is replaced with a composite resin to regain the lost structure. Since this resin is activated using a blue curing light, it sets while in the dental chair, making it possible to have no food and water restrictions.
Stage 3 & 4 require a RCT
When one undergoes a root canal treatment (RCT), the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed. The treatment saves your natural tooth and with that, your beautiful smile.
Does it hurt?
The patients are administered some local anesthesia to make the treatment relatively painless and comforting. However, a root canal is generally a bit sore or numb after the procedure, and can even cause mild discomfort for a few days.
Signs that you might need a Root Canal
  • Severe pain while chewing or biting
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • A chipped or cracked tooth
  • Deep decay or darkening of the gums
  • Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold sensations
