Root canals are narrow chambers that anchor the tooth into your gums. When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected by either a deep cavity or fracture, it can spread into the root canal and root tips. When this happens, and treatment is delayed, serious infection can pass into the jawbone. Once the infection sets in, it can damage the bone that surrounds the tooth. As a result, the pressure inside the bone and ligaments can cause excruciating pain. If treatment is delayed even further, the problem can become even more serious.
Before the problem gets to that point, consult a dentist. Telltale signs that you’re experiencing a root canal infection include sensitivity to hot and cold, swollen and painful gums surrounding the tooth, or a bad taste in your mouth. Sometimes, you may have no symptoms at all, which is an important reason to have regular dentist checkups.
At Gateway Dental, saving your tooth from extraction is extremely important to us. Treating an infection with root canal therapy can prevent the loss of a tooth while also preventing the spread of infection. Root canal therapy can take one to two visits to the dentist and pricing can vary with each situation.
Maintaining the health of your mouth can be the most beneficial care you can do for yourself. Experience the difference of a healthier smile and mouth by scheduling an appointment with us today.
