Root Canal Therapy
In the past, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you would probably lose that tooth. Today, with a special dental procedure called root canal treatment, your tooth can be saved. Root canals are a relatively simple procedure involving one to three office visits. Best of all, having a root canal when necessary can save your tooth and your smile!
Teeth that require endodontic therapy do not always feel painful. However, signs you may need a root canal include:
Pain upon chewing or application of pressure
Prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
Dark discoloration of the tooth
Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums
