Signs That You May Need a Root Canal

June 30, 2021 7:35 pm

Root canal therapy is a virtually painless procedure that helps restore damaged and/or infected teeth. One of the many benefits of root canal therapy is that it can preserve your natural tooth and prevent the need for an extraction. Here’s what you need to know about root canals and some signs that may point to potentially needing one.

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

During a root canal treatment, a small hole is made in the tooth’s crown (its chewing surface). This entry point allows us to clean out the diseased pulp inside the tooth’s canals. After the inside of the tooth is cleaned out, we can use a special material to fill the tooth and help prevent future decay.

The only way to know that you need a root canal is to see a dentist. However, there are some symptoms to look out for. If you are currently experiencing any of the symptoms below, contact Toothfairy Adult & Kids Dentist right away to schedule a consultation.
