Signs You Might Need a Root Canal

Tooth Pain Columbus

Root canal therapy is necessary when a tooth’s nerve is infected or the dental pulp is damaged. During a root canal procedure, the dentist removes the infected nerve and dental pulp from the interior of the tooth, and then cleans and seals the tooth. Root canal therapy is necessary to prevent further infection, bone loss, and an abscessed tooth.

There are a few signs that you can look out for that indicate you might need a root canal. You will have severe tooth pain when biting or chewing. You may also have sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, and the sensitivity or pain will persist even after the source of heat or cold is removed. You will have swelling, redness, and tenderness in the gums, and you may have a recurring pimple on the gums. You also may notice that your tooth appears dark or discolored.

If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, come in for a consultation at Oak Creek Dental Care for a root canal near Columbus, Ohio. Our friendly, experienced dentists can make your visit comfortable with sedation dentistry. To schedule an appointment, call us today at (614) 882-7456.
