How Do You Know When It's Time for a Root Canal?
Root canal therapy is a specialized service that’s required when a tooth’s pulp becomes damaged. Because of the damage to the pulp, bacteria thrive, leading to infections or abscesses. These can lead to the infection of other teeth if they’re not handled in a timely manner.
Visit our dental office if you have continuous pain, or tooth pain when talking or chewing. These can all be signs of an issue, but only the dentist can say for certain whether or not you need a root canal.
