Root Canal Therapy
In the past, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you would more than likely lose that tooth. Today, with a dental procedure called root canal treatment, your tooth can be saved. Root canals are a relatively simple procedure involving one to three office visits.
What Are the Signs That a Root Canal Is Needed?
Teeth that require root canal therapy are not always painful. However, signs you may need a root canal include severe toothache, pain when chewing or when applying pressure, prolonged sensitivity or pain in response to hot and cold temperatures, a dark discoloration of the tooth, and swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, call us today to schedule an appointment.
