If you are having issues with your oral health, you may ask yourself, “Do I need a root canal?” Although this may be a scary thought, Oral Health Center always keep gentleness and patient comfort in mind. We also provide the necessary sedation techniques so we can completely reduce the discomfort or anxiety you may feel during and before the procedure.
Root Canal Symptoms
In most cases, root infection symptoms are very noticeable, making it easy for dentists to understand what is going on in time to save the tooth from having to be extracted.
These symptoms include:
- Sensitivity in the mouth
- Pain around a specific area
- Tenderness, especially when eating
- Significant discoloration
- Swollen gums
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, we recommend calling your dentist as soon as possible in order to prevent further damage or oral health issues. If you can’t get into your dentist office for a few days, apply an ice pack to your jaw to soothe the pain and swelling.
