Endodontic treatment helps you keep your teeth in a functional condition, maintain your natural smile and allows you to continue eating the foods you love. Research has shown that root canal treatment can last a lifetime with proper care.

Persistent pain is one of the earliest and main indicators that there is some trouble with your tooth. If the toothache is interfering with your routine activities such as drinking or eating, visit your dentist as soon as you can.

Chipped Or Cracked Tooth

Your teeth can chip or crack from eating hard foods, dental trauma or a previous dental filling can dislodge. This can expose the nerves providing sensation to the tooth and lead to an infection that can enter the bloodstream and spread. Root canal treatment is required to prevent further infection and pain.

Sensitivity To Heat or Cold

Tooth sensitivity is another common sign that you might need a root canal. If you get a discomforting sensation on the consumption of hot or cold food and drinks, this can be a sign of gum disease or it might be origination due to tooth problems. It might start as a dull ache but can progress into a sharp, intense pain.

Swollen Gum Area

Swollen, painful gums with a raised bump at times are a sign of inflammation with the source beneath the gingival surface.

Dark Discoloration Of The Tooth

Tooth discoloration can be due to a variety of reasons like poor hygiene, staining food and drinks or pulpal necrosis.

Prolonged Sensitivity

If putting pressure on your tooth causes sensitivity that might last for weeks or months without improvement, a root canal might be in your future. It can typically be due to damaged root, and won’t heal on its own. To get permanent relief, your dentist might suggest RCT as the course of treatment.

Deep Decay

Once dental decay spreads to the pulp, a root canal is the only option for treating infection and repairing the tooth.
