How to Know If You Need a Root Canal
Dr. Mannas will recommend a root canal as a means of saving a badly decayed tooth. The procedure is usually performed in one or two visits to our dentist office. Sometimes it’s hard to know whether or not you need a root canal. In fact, you may experience no symptoms at all but still need to have the procedure done. Typically, however, you’ll experience some of the following symptoms if you need a root canal:
- Severe toothache, especially when you apply pressure on the tooth or chew food
- A discolored tooth
- Swollen and/or tender gums around the tooth
- Sensitivity to hot and cold food and drinks
About the Procedure
Dr. Mannas will perform a root canal in an effort to save a tooth that is infected or badly decayed. During the procedure, Dr. Mannas will remove nerve and pulp from inside of the tooth, then clean it and seal it. A tooth doesn’t need either nerves or pulp in order to function, so removing the infected material restores to tooth to how it once was when it was healthy. After a successful root canal procedure, your tooth will be as good as new, and you’ll be able to eat and drink normally again.
