At Toluca Advanced Dentistry, we understand the significance of prompt action when it comes to tooth pain. We emphasize the importance of seeking timely treatment to preserve your natural teeth. Ignoring tooth pain can lead to more severe oral health issues, potential tooth loss and more costly. Our dedicated team is here to provide effective root canal therapy, ensuring the preservation of your natural teeth and maintaining your overall oral well-being.

What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a procedure designed to save a severely damaged or infected tooth. During the treatment, our team gently removes the infected pulp from the tooth’s root canal, cleanses and disinfects the area, and fills it with a biocompatible material. This process effectively eliminates pain, prevents further infection, and preserves the natural tooth structure.

Do You Need a Root Canal? Recognizing the Signs

When you have a toothache or dental discomfort, it’s natural to wonder about the root cause and the best treatment. One of the procedures that many patients have questions about is root canal therapy.  Below, we’ve outlined some of the most common signs and symptoms that might indicate a need for this procedure:

• Severe Toothache: This is one of the most common indicators. If you experience pain when chewing or applying pressure to the tooth, it might be time for a check-up.

• Prolonged Sensitivity: If you notice that your tooth feels sensitive for an extended period, especially to hot or cold temperatures, it may be a sign of a deeper issue or a signs that you might need a deep cleaning. Regardless we recommend getting a dental exam to see what is the best solution.

  • Tooth Discoloration: Sometimes, a tooth may turn dark or discolored due to underlying damage or infection, warranting a root canal.
  • Swollen, Tender Gums: If you observe swelling or tenderness in the gums near a particular tooth, it can be an indication of an infection that has reached or affected the root.
  • Persistent Pimple on the Gums: A recurring or persistent pimple on the gums, often called a dental abscess, is a sign of infection. This can be accompanied by pus and may cause a bad taste in the mouth. If you see any pimples on the gum area, we recommend getting an exam as soon as possible to potentially prevent the need for a root canal.
  • Prolonged Tooth Decay or Damage: If a tooth is cracked, chipped, or been decayed for a long time, the inner pulp may become infected, leading to the need for a root canal.

It’s essential to remember that while these signs can be indicative of a problem that may require a root canal, they can also relate to other dental issues and needs. The only sure way to determine the need for a root canal is through a comprehensive dental examination. We offer a $50 New patient exam and X-ray that can be applied to your treatment if you schedule with us after your dental exam. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s crucial to visit your dentist as soon as possible. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent complications and preserve your natural tooth.
