Do I Need Root Canal Therapy?
For those who experience ongoing dental pain, root canal therapy is often prescribed. However, it’s not the only solution for discomfort in one’s mouth. This particular treatment should solely be used when a tooth has endured too much damage or decay to be restored with other methods like fillings and crowns. If you’re questioning whether or not you may need this procedure, look out for these telltale signs:
- Pain in your teeth that is prolonged and intense, persisting for longer than one full day.
- If you experience sudden discomfort when eating hot or cold foods, it’s likely due to an increase in sensitivity of your teeth.
- If you notice aching in particular teeth when biting down, it could be an indication of discomfort.
- Puffy, inflamed, and sore gums.
- If you notice a small, pustule-like protrusion close to the affected tooth, this could be indicative of an underlying dental concern.
If you’ve noticed any of the above signs, it’s possible that you’re experiencing a dental emergency and may need root canal treatment. Don’t hesitate – contact our dental office to set up an appointment today! Timely care is essential for successful outcomes; don’t let your injury get worse by delaying the process any further.
Questions About Root Canal Therapy?
Process Behind a Root Canal Treatment
The simplest way to treat infected pulp is through a non-surgical procedure that can be completed by your dentist under local anesthetic. Your dentist will drill into the tooth, eliminate the damaged pulp, sanitize the root canal and seal it off for further protection from infection – all in one efficient process.
Typically, root canal therapy is conducted in a single session; however, depending on the severity of the infection it could require another appointment. If while performing the procedure your dentist finds that too much damage has occurred to save the tooth- you will be notified right away. After treatment is done and finished there should only be a minor recovery period before returning back to typical oral health conditions.
