Bridges are a popular solution for missing teeth and can be used to replace both single and multiple missing teeth.
A single bridge comprises a crown that covers a tooth which has been replaced by a false tooth or ‘prosthesis’ that is bonded to the natural tooth on one side and a crown on the other side.
Multiple bridges are similar to single bridges, however, each bridge is designed to support a different set of teeth and a number of bridges are joined together to create a single unit.
When the nerve of the tooth becomes diseased, infected or inflamed pain and swelling can occur. The tooth must be treated to relieve both pain and the underlying infection.

Our Bnagalore root canal service enables you to keep a tooth where damage, or potential damage, to the dental pulp has begun. Although some people may find root canals to be one of the scarier general dental procedures, we can assure you there is nothing to be afraid of.
When you schedule your visit to our Ramamurthy Nagar location, we will help you to understand what a root canal is and if you need it. We will also answer any questions that you may have as well as educate you on some of the myths about root canals.
When you have a bad or broken tooth, many symptoms that are common indicators that you need a root canal may start forming.
Symptoms indicating you may need a root canal include (but are not limited to):
Is your tooth extremely sensitive to cold or hot water liquids or food? When you touch it, do you feel a sharp sense of pain? In some cases, pimples on the gums may even start forming; or the gums may become swollen.
Not all tooth pain necessarily means that you need a root canal, but you should always consult with a dentist if you are having tooth pain.
That being said, long lasting deep pain in the bone or tooth is a common indicator that you may need to consider a root canal. The pain may always be there or go away for a while – but it always comes back.
If the dental pulp is infected or damaged, the tooth may become discolored. A grayish-black color of the tooth is common when the pulp has “died” and deterioration of the tissue begins.
Again, tooth discoloration is not always a sign that you need a root canal, but is a common symptom.
Extirpation: Initial clean to control bacterial infection.
Instrumentation: Thorough clean and medicine.
Obturation: Filling the root canal.
Does a root canal hurt? Since patients are given anesthesia, a root canal isn’t more painful than a regular dental procedure, such as a filling or getting a wisdom tooth removed. However, a root canal is generally a bit sore or numb after the procedure, and can even cause mild discomfort for a few days.
Most patients recover after a few days or so. In some cases, patients go through complications. These patients may take one to two weeks to heal. Any pain or swelling that pain medication cannot relieve will need treatment from the dentist or a doctor.
In most cases, root canal therapy is a better way to treat an infected tooth than an extraction. However, there are exceptions, such as if the tooth has suffered extreme damage. Your dentist will carefully analyze your oral health before making a treatment recommendation.
