root canal treatment is performed to save the natural tooth from getting damaged. In the procedure of the root canal treatment, the pulp (the soft tissue containing the blood vessels and nerves of your tooth) is infected or damaged and hence, the procedure is carried out to remove the pulp. During the root canal treatment pain is not sensed, because a local anesthesia is injected in the affected area by the dentist to perform the treatment smoothly. Post root canal treatment, pain is sensed as the anesthesia starts losing its effect. To avoid the pain, the dentist will give you a proper medication to control severe pain. After a few weeks of procedure and discomforts, You will be able to resume your everyday oral habits, such as chewing, smiling, brushing and flossing.
