Contrary to popular belief, root canal therapy doesn’t cause pain, it actually relieves it! Advances in dental technology have made root canal therapy virtually a pain-free experience.
Saving your tooth is a better choice than extracting it! Keeping your tooth helps to prevent your other teeth from drifting out of line and causing jaw or bite problems. Saving a natural tooth avoids having to replace it with an artificial tooth.
Common symptoms of a root canal infection include:
- Sharp, acute and intense pain
- Sharp pain when biting down
- Lingering pain after eating hot or cold foods
- Dull ache and pressure
- Tenderness and swelling in the nearby gums
