Root canal therapy is necessary to eliminate infection due to deep decay, trauma, or periodontal disease. Pain is frequently the first symptom associated with an infection in your tooth. Other symptoms include:
- Sensitivity to hot and cold
- Pain when chewing
An oral evaluation in our office will allow our dentists to diagnose the need for root canal treatment. We will likely take an x-ray and, if necessary, perform vitality tests to determine the status of your tooth.
