When Might You Require a Root Canal?

Our teeth are extremely delicate and unfortunately, most of us will require a filling from time to time due to the presence of a cavity. In some cases, this involves a treatment called root canal.

How do we know when a root canal is required and why is it important to see your dentist at the first sign of trouble?

– Minor tooth pain can normally signal a dental cavity that will treated with a filling.

– Severe pain or a discoloured tooth could hint at a larger problem – a larger cavity that requires a root canal.

– A root canal procedure will end your tooth pain as the infection will be removed.

“Some cavities are easily remedied with fillings while others will require root canal therapy.”
