Root Canal Treatment
|•||Sensitive teeth: If you notice a piercing sharp pain when you eat or drink something hot or cold, it could be a sign that the nerves in your tooth pulp are infected or damaged. Therefore, you will need a root canal procedure to revert the condition.
|•||Persistent pain: An infection in your tooth pulp will trigger pain that doesn't go away. You will experience pain deep in your tooth, making it challenging to chew food. You might also experience significant pain in parts of the jaw, face, or nearby teeth. Even though the pain caused by root infections remains persistent most of the time, it might go away for a while, but it will always come back.
|•||Discolored teeth: You will also know you need a root canal procedure if you get tooth discoloration. An infection in your tooth pulp makes the tooth become discolored. Aggressive trauma in the internal tissues of your tooth can make the tooth look grayish-black. This is a sign that you need a root canal.
|•||Swollen gums: You might develop swollen gums around the area of the infected tooth. Any signs of swollen gums mean you need a root canal. Even though the swelling may come and go by itself, it clearly signals that you need treatment. The affected gums might be tender or painful to the touch.|
