Do I Need a Root Canal? | Dellwood Endodontics
Toothaches can be caused by many things and don’t always indicate that you need to get root canal treatment. But, there are certain symptoms 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
- An acute bump, not unlike the appearance of a pimple, on the gum line, near the affected area
- Extreme gum tenderness or swelling
Root Canal Therapy, Dellwood
The process of getting root canal therapy is straight-forward and similar to having a tooth filled. During your appointment, the dentist will give you anesthesia to keep you comfortable during the treatment. Then, utilizing special tools, the dentist will open up the top of the injured tooth, remove the infected soft tissue, and clean the area. After disinfecting the area, the tooth will be sealed to prevent further infection, and topped with a crown which protects the tooth below.
