Signs of Dental Infection

You might require root canal treatment if you're experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Severe Tooth Pain or Sensitivity: Persistent and intense tooth pain or sensitivity can indicate an infected tooth.
  • Tooth Discoloration: Darkening or discoloration of a tooth can be a sign of infection.
  • Gum Swelling and Tenderness: Inflamed gums around a tooth may suggest an underlying issue.
  • Gum Bump: The presence of a small bump on the gums near a problematic tooth could be cause for concern.
  • Pain While Biting or Chewing: Discomfort when using the affected tooth for chewing is a common symptom.

What Happens During a Root Canal?

Several steps are required when performing a root canal. From the consultation to the recovery, you can expect that our dental team will remain by your side. Once cleared for treatment after a thorough examination, we will administer local anesthesia to help numb the area and ensure optimal comfort. We’ll then provide dental sedation should you need it.

After isolating the tooth with a dental dam, we will access the inner layers of the tooth by creating an access hole in the top. Clearing away any infected or damaged pulp, we’ll also clean the interior chambers and canals to ensure there is no trace of bacteria remaining.

Once the cleaning is complete, we will fill the tooth with a biocompatible solution known as gutta-percha, which seals the tooth to prevent future reinfection. Then, a customized crown is created and put in place.
