Symptoms That May Require a Root Canal
How do you know when tooth decay has gone from a simple cavity to an infection that requires pulp removal with a root canal? While sometimes an infected tooth presents no obvious symptoms, an infected root canal is often accompanied by signs such as:
- Sudden extreme sensitivity to cold and heat
- Swollen gums and face
- Swollen lymph nodes
- A sudden but persistent bad taste in your mouth
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact our Plano, TX, dentistry practice immediately for prompt root canal therapy. The sooner you seek treatment, the better your chance to save the affected tooth. If decay is left untreated, the only alternative is tooth extraction. Unfortunately, a lost tooth can lead to long term oral and overall health issues including bone atrophy at the extraction site. While an implant-supported restoration can help restore your smile, dental implants are far more costly and complex than a root canal.
Determining If a Tooth Can Be Saved
Healthy Enamel and Dentin
In order for root canal therapy to successfully save a tooth, the outer tissue must be able to support a crown. If the infected pulp has resulted in decay severe enough to compromise the structure of the tooth, extraction is the only option. This underscores the importance of seeking prompt treatment when experiencing painful symptoms.
Third molars, also known as wisdom teeth, are troublesome to say the least. Their location makes them incredibly difficult to take care of, even for patients with the most rigorous dental hygiene. They often erupt in ways that are harmful to the jaw and surrounding teeth. If your wisdom teeth become infected, our dentists will recommend extraction over root canal treatment.
