Do you need root canal therapy in Mesquite, TX?
When the area inside your tooth, known as the pulp, becomes infected, your dentist may recommend a root canal treatment. Several things can cause this infection, especially deep cracks and decay. An infected pulp can lead to painful and potentially dangerous abscesses if left untreated. Common symptoms of infection including the following:
- Tooth discoloration
- Sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks
- Tenderness of the bone or gum
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, then talk to your dentist as it may be a sign of an infected pulp. Ignoring the pain and symptoms will not make the infection go away. Treatment is necessary.
What is root canal therapy?
Our dentists have performed thousands of root canals and we do them right here in the office. We will take x-rays to get a proper view of the entire affected area and begin a treatment plan. After cleaning out the pulp, your dentist will place a restoration (filling or crown, depending on the tooth) to protect the tooth.
