Signs You May Need a Root Canal

Root canal treatment (also referred to as endodontic therapy) are necessary when an untreated dental cavity reaches all the way to the pulp or if trauma to a tooth causes nerve damage. Once the pulp becomes infected, it will require treatment as the tooth cannot heal on its own. Symptoms which may indicate infected pulp include:

  • Sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweets
  • Pain from biting or pressure
  • Discoloration or darkening of the tooth
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gums
  • Pimple or abscess on the gums
  • Bad taste or smell in the mouth

The Root Canal Procedure

First, our team takes X-rays of your mouth to find out the extent of the infection and the shape of the affected root canals. After determining a course of action, we’ll thoroughly numb the area near the affected tooth using local anesthesia. We then gain access to the infected tooth’s canals and clear out the compromised pulp, bacteria, decayed nerve tissue, and other debris. Once we administer an infection-fighting antibiotic and replace the pulp with a biocompatible, rubber-like material called gutta-percha, we seal the tooth to prevent further infection.
