Root Canals and Endodontics

If you have a cracked, severely injured or tooth that is in a state of advanced decay, you may need to have an endodontic treatment. These conditions can lead to the pulp inside of the tooth's root canal to become infected and inflamed, and if it is not treated soon, you could end up losing that tooth. Endodontic treatments are more commonly referred to as a root canal, and can be completed in one to two office visits. It depends upon the state of the tooth, the infection, and what needs to be done to fully restore the tooth.

Symptoms You May Experience If You Need A Root Canal

If you are not sure if you have a root canal, there are a few common symptoms that you may experience. You may notice that your teeth are sensitive to hot or cold liquids, or that you may have discomfort in the gums surrounding the tooth that is infected. It is also common to have an abscess, the results of pus within the tissues of the jawbone adjacent to the infected tooth. You may also notice swelling in this area, all symptoms that may indicate that you may need a root canal done.

Set An Appointment Today

To determine if you need to have a root canal, you should set an appointment with Dr. Sawyer. He will examine the tooth that is potentially infected, and if it is, do the root canal for you.
