A Root Canal May Be Needed to Save Your Natural Tooth

Symptoms like tooth pain and swelling interfere with your healthy smile. When this occurs, you may need to see an endodontist for the type of care you need. At Comfort Dental, we have an in-office endodontist here to provide specialized treatments like root canal therapy. A root canal is a common procedure designed to reduce tooth pain caused by infection, and ultimately save a natural tooth from extraction. Ignoring such symptoms increases the risk of greater oral health problems and costlier treatment in the future.

Don’t Ignore the Signs of Infection

Root Canal Treatment Procedure

You may need a root canal if you experience any of these signs of infection:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Discoloration
  • Abscess or pus
  • Dull toothache
  • Pain on biting
  • Temperature sensitivity
  • Pimple on gum tissue

Treat Your Symptoms Now for Lasting Comfort and Health

When bacteria invade the pulp of a tooth, treatment is needed to cleanse the inside portion and down into the roots. Special filling material is placed to strengthen the tooth from within. This helps you to keep your natural tooth instead of facing extraction. Leaving an infected tooth untreated only invites more complex concerns. Such issues may include infection in the jaw bone, removal of the tooth and possibly dental implant surgery. The best option is to treat your tooth now, and preserve your health and comfort.
