Root Canal Treatment – Expertise You Can Trust

Restore Tooth Function

We know and understand that you probably are not looking forward to ever needing or receiving root canal therapy. However, when performed correctly by trained and experienced dentists, the procedure is nearly painless and the results last. Root canal treatment (also referred to as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy) is made necessary when an untreated cavity reaches all the way to the pulp. Treatment may also be needed when deep restorations or trauma to a tooth cause nerve damage. Here are the three main symptoms that may indicate your pulp has become infected.

While there are many reasons a tooth may become sensitive, one possible reason is an infection of the pulp in your gums. If deemed necessary, root canal therapy is designed to eliminate any discomfort you may be having.

Pain when biting down is usually a good indicator that something is wrong with the tooth. When paired with the presence of constant pain, or swelling, it may indicate the need for root canal therapy.

While there are multiple causes of this symptom, infected pulp is also one possible culprit. If you consistently feel like something is off in the way your mouth tastes, it may be an indicator that pulp in your gum has become infected.
