Do You Need Root Canal Therapy Or Fillings?

Cavities cause pain and discomfort. Your dentist will evaluate your mouth to confirm whether you need fillings or root canal therapy.

Key takeaways:

– Fillings are enough if the decay has not progressed to the nerve tissue.

– Root canal therapy is necessary if your teeth are cracked, discoloured or sensitive to hot and cold foods.

– If you notice tooth decay, sensitivity or discolouration, visit the dentist immediately for treatment.

Prevent cavities by brushing your teeth regularly and rinsing your mouth after every snack. Also, see the dentist regularly to be checked.
