Why May You Need a Root Canal?
When the soft tissue inside your root canal becomes infected, you may need treatment. This area is known as the pulp. Deep decays or cracks are often the cause of this problem. If left untreated, then it can lead to painful abscesses. Common symptoms of an infected pulp are pain, tooth discoloration, sensitivity to heat or cold, or tenderness to your bone and gum. If you are experiencing any of these, then contact your dentist as soon as possible. Ignoring the pain will not make it go away.
How Does a Root Canal Treatment Work?
Your dentist will most likely need to take x-rays of your mouth to see the issue and begin a treatment plan properly. Your dentist will then make an opening in your tooth’s crown to properly clean out your pulp. You will then have a new crown for your tooth or another method of restoration. This will help in further protecting your tooth.
