How can I tell if I need a root canal?
There’s no way for patients to know for sure whether they need a root canal or not on their own, which is why visiting an experienced dentist to have your teeth and gums examined is essential. Here are a few symptoms that can indicate that a root canal may be necessary:
- Severe tooth pain
- Sudden tooth sensitivity
- Change in tooth color
- Swollen or tender gums
- A loose tooth
Are root canals painful?
Root canals have a bad reputation for being very uncomfortable and painful dental procedures because they used to be much more painful than they are now. Fortunately, advancements in dental technology now allow root canal treatments to be more similar to receiving a dental filling from the patient’s perspective. If restorative dental treatments tend to cause you anxiety or you just want your root canal treatment to fly by, our office also provides several choices for dental sedation that you are welcome to utilize.Learn More
Do I really need a root canal?
Root canals are performed when harmful bacteria are able to access the inside of a tooth through untreated dental trauma or tooth decay and cause an infection. When this happens, the only way to treat the infection is by creating a small hole in the top of the tooth and clearing out the infected tissue inside the tooth. If the infection is left untreated, it can spread to other parts of the mouth and body and cause serious consequences, so it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible.Contact Us
