NORMAL TOOTH STRUCTURE AND ITS LAYERS
To understand a root canal treatment (RCT) better, it is good to know something about the basic structure of the tooth. Tooth is like a coconut (outer shell is hard and inner core is soft) , inside the tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer of dentin, is a soft tissue called the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels and nerves of the tooth. When a tooth gets decayed, the infection spreads from enamel through dentin to pulp causing injury to the nerve and blood supply of the tooth which results in need of a RCT for the tooth.

Root canal treatment in a tooth is necessary when the dental pulp, the soft tissue inside the tooth, becomes damaged or infected with germs. The dental infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay or cavity, dental infection through gums or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, a dental injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If this dental infection is left untreated, it can cause dental pain or lead to a dental abscess (spread to the bone and other teeth).
A: The symptoms for root canal treatment are sharp tooth ache, night tooth ache, severe tooth pain on cold and hot, if this pain lasts long after cold or hot was applied. With more advanced stages tooth ache while biting appears.

A filling can be placed only after all dental decay is removed and the pulp chamber or the nerve of the tooth is left intact. If radiographically (from digital rvg xray) or during the removal of decay, the pulp chamber or the nerve of the tooth is found to be involved with dental decay, root canal treatment must be performed.Endodentists at ivories dental clinic in satellite ahmedabad can be best at diagnosing your pain after a routine check up and xray examination
