Signs & Symptoms of Tooth Infection
If you are experiencing any tooth pain, it may be a sign of an infection. Your mouth and teeth should never hurt normally, so any discomfort is a warning that something is wrong. Patients who have an infected tooth may experience discomfort around the jaw, a specific tooth, experience chronic headaches, or may even have an abscess form. If you feel like there is something wrong with your teeth, scheduling an appointment for an exam is the best way to get treated and have a professional examine your mouth. Timely treatment with root canal therapy can save your tooth and prevent it from needing extraction. Also, a root canal often eases tooth pain immediately!
What is Root Canal Therapy?
When decay spreads throughout a tooth, it may eventually reach the pulp of the tooth. If this happens, the tooth may soon be in danger of dying and require extraction. To stop the spread of decay and preserve the tooth, root canal therapy works by removing all present decay and infection and also removing the pulp of the tooth. When performing root canal therapy, your dentist will ensure that you are comfortable and at ease throughout your treatment. Sedation dentistry is an effective way to help you stay relaxed during lengthy visits. Once your root canal therapy is complete, your dentist can discuss a restoration option for your tooth such as a dental crown. Root canal therapy has successfully helped many patients preserve their smile and it can work for you too!
