Do I Need a Root Canal?
The most common sign that you may need a root canal is chronic tooth pain. The cause of this pain can vary, but it typically appears as a result of unremoved dental plaque creating extensive decay in the tooth. This decay breaks down enamel and eventually reaches the inner tooth where vulnerable pulp lies. Outside of tooth pain, other signs you may need a root canal include:
- Darkening of teeth (usually brown, black or gray in color)
- Pimple-like bump on gum tissue
- Extreme sensitivity
- Sensitivity to hot or cold food/beverages that lingers
