Root canals generally take one to two appointments, but afterwards, with good hygiene, many people don’t require further endodontic treatment.

Do I Need a Root Canal? | Black Jack Endodontics

Tooth pain can be caused by a variety of things and doesn’t necessarily mean that you need a root canal. But, some signs that could point to you needing root canal treatment:

  • Sudden, extreme sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Prolonged tooth pain that is triggered long after hot or cold temperatures have been removed
  • A discolored, gray or brownish tooth, which indicates inflamed pulp/ruptured blood vessels
  • A small bump, not unlike the appearance of a pimple, on the gum line, near the affected area
  • Extreme gum tenderness or swelling

Root Canal Therapy, Black Jack

Root canal therapy is a standard procedure and similar to having a tooth filled. During your visit, the dentist will numb you with an anesthetic to make sure that you’re comfortable during the treatment. Then, using special tools, the dentist will cut open the top of the infected tooth, take out all of the damaged soft tissue, and clean the area. After disinfecting the site, the tooth will be sealed to prevent further infection, and topped with a crown which protects the tooth below.
