How do you know when you might need a root canal? Our dentists will, of course, thoroughly evaluate your teeth and gums before recommending any procedure. But here are some signs that a root canal might prove necessary:
- Chronic tooth pain
- Tooth discoloration
- Gum swelling
- Signs of pus
- Tooth sensitivity
If you find yourself experiencing any of these symptoms, it might be the sign of tooth decay, and you might very well need a root canal.
Regardless of the eventual treatment, you absolutely need to arrange an appointment at our office as soon as possible. These are serious symptoms, and you should not ignore them. The sooner you address the root cause of your pain, the sooner you’ll eliminate it.
If you live in or around Oradell, New Jersey and you have questions about the root canal procedure, please call Oradell Family Dental today at 201-384-9292.
