No tooth can replace a person’s own tooth no matter how advanced the high-level methods used in technology and dentistry are. Therefore, we need to protect our existing teeth as much as possible and have them treated instead of having them removed if we cannot protect them. This is where the root canal treatment comes into play. Because the purpose of root canal treatment is to make existing dental roots as long-lasting, healthy and usable as possible.
Of course, the pain threshold of everyone varies from person to person. But in general, root canal treatment does not hurt as much as it is feared of. In fact, the main purpose of root canal treatment is to remove the dead tooth nerve, in other words the pulp. Thus, the death of pulp causes you to feel no pain. However, some patients may experience pain or discomfort due to inflammation in the teeth.
If the tooth is heavily decayed and worn, or if there is a material loss in the tooth during root canal treatment, fiber post is applied.
