Do I Need Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is typically used to treat teeth that have developed damage or an infection in their dental pulp, which is the delicate interior nerve. This type of problem is usually the source of abnormal symptoms like:

  • A sharp, stabbing pain when biting down
  • Persistent dental sensitivity
  • Dark discoloration on the tooth
  • Red, swollen, or inflamed gums
  • A pimple-like bump on the gums

The good news is that root canal treatment can provide fast and reliable relief. So, if one or more of these warning signs of dental damage are present, don’t hesitate to reach out to us to schedule an emergency exam!

The Root Canal Process

We mentioned in the first paragraph that root canal treatment is virtually pain-free. That’s because your mouth will be thoroughly numbed! Once you’re comfortable and ready to begin, Dr. Springhetti will create a small hole in the enamel, and this is used to remove the compromised dental pulp. The inside of the tooth is then cleaned, sanitized, and filled to prevent further infection. At a follow-up appointment, the tooth is more thoroughly rebuilt with a dental crown, and after this, the tooth should look and function like normal for many years to come.
