Severe nerve inflammation can be the reason for sleepless night because of tooth ache.
in the old days the only solution was to pull the tooth out, but now to save the tooth and prevent further problems, the root canal is treated. After successful therapy, your dentist will restore the tooth to normal function.
Usually the cause for inflammation or infection is a deep decay, trauma to the tooth or large filling. The signs of nerve damage can include pain, sensitivity to hot or cold, color changes and swelling or soreness in the gums.
