Do You Need Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal infections and problems can often remain silent. There are several prevalent symptoms, however, that can push patients to visit their dentists and getting treated. Significant pain when chewing and eating can often mean that there’s a root canal infection.

Patients who experience sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks that lasts after they’re done eating might have root canal problems. Other symptoms include swollen and tender gums, darker teeth, swelling of the face, and a hole in the tooth. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, you need to visit us as soon as possible at Colonia Dental Associates.

Root Canals

Root canals might require multiple visits. We might not be able to treat the underlying problem in one visit to our office. The first thing we’ll do to make you comfortable is to inject the affected tooth and areas with local anesthesia. This will keep you numb while we work. The only sensation you’ll feel is pressure.

We’ll then need to create a hole to reach the pulp of the tooth and remove it. Our priority will be to remove any infected or necrotic tissues. The space left behind is filled using a filling. The opening made in the tooth will then be sealed. Most patients who receive root canals will need to return so we can fit the affected teeth with dental crowns.
