When to Face the Fact That You Need a Root Canal

dca-blog_root-canal-3d-model

Root canals are the best route for dealing with many dental problems. Discover the various reasons why the time may be right for a root canal.

Pain is the most common symptom when you need a root canal. The agony can appear in different spots and severity, yet the most frequent forms of root canal pain include:

  1. A mild to major toothache.
  2. Headache pain.
  3. Throbbing pain when chewing or putting pressure on the tooth.
  4. Jaw pain.
  5. Extreme sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures.
  6. Pressure around the roots of upper teeth due to sinus congestion.

An abscess develops when the pulp within the tooth dies and creates a pocket of pus around the root of the tooth. When this pus becomes infected, a root canal is necessary to prevent the infection from spreading to nearby tissue and bone. While antibiotics can help fight the infection, the only way to completely remove it and eliminate all bacteria is with a root canal by an affordable dentist or a specialist in endodontics in Sarasota.

Tooth decay can be so damaging that it can cause the tooth to become infected. This may lead to a great deal of pain or may be barely noticeable. But the tooth decay and infection must be removed, which can be easily accomplished by a root canal.

A fractured tooth can be broken deeply enough to reach the delicate pulp, causing a root canal to be needed to protect the tooth from infection. Also, if a fracture leaves too little of the tooth’s structure for a crown or other restoration, then a root canal is required to place a post within the tooth that can support the restoration.

Repeated dental procedures may support your smile, but they also put stress on your teeth. Frequent dental work can cause a tooth to become inflamed and may lead to permanent damage. But a root canal can save your tooth by removing the damaged sections within.

Ask an affordable dentist or a specialist in endodontics in Sarasota about your options.
