Root Canal Therapy Rescues Ailing Teeth
If your tooth is severely decayed or suffering from infection, then you will benefit from root canal therapy. A root canal will rid your tooth of diseased tissue, and in most cases, save your tooth.
You might need a root canal if:
- You are experiencing toothache pain, especially when chewing.
- Your tooth has prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures.
- You have swelling and tenderness in your gums.
- Your tooth has darkened or has other discoloration.
Once we have cleaned out the infection, we seal the tooth. We usually recommend the addition of a crown to protect the tooth from becoming too brittle or from being re-infected. When the root canal is complete, you will have immediate relief from irritation and pain.
