When a tooth is damaged by decay, abscess or fracture, a root canal treatment can retain your original tooth and prevent the need for extraction. This treatment can help prevent premature tooth loss and, when combined with a dental crown, it will restore the function and comfort of your teeth and your smile.
DO I NEED A ROOT CANAL?
The most common indicators of a serious problem in your teeth are high sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures and pain or swelling in your gums. However, some patients never experience any obvious symptoms, which is why it’s imperative to have regular check-ups every six months and receive quality dental services in a timely manner.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, contact us for a full diagnosis:
- Chronic tooth sensitivity to hot or cold liquids.
- Sensitivity while eating sweets.
- Sensitivity to biting.
- Spontaneous toothache, experienced without obvious cause.
- Constant, severe or throbbing toothache.
- Tooth pain in response to atmospheric pressure changes, such as when flying.
- Swelling of the gums.
