Though not every toothache indicates trouble, you may experience one or more of the following indicators of an infection that may warrant a root canal:

  • Severe pain during eating
  • Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Gum tenderness or swelling near the area of tooth pain

Choosing a Root Canal

This procedure may be indicated if the decay present in a tooth is nearing the tooth’s nerve. Your jaw has a nerve supply that runs to all teeth, providing it with the blood flow it needs. If the decay is present in the nerve, it will die out, and infection can result. If you already have an infection or there is an abscess, a root canal is usually an appropriate treatment.

If you’ve been putting up with tooth pain, don’t delay seeking care. Your caring and gentle dentist at Woonona Dental will help get you out of misery and smiling before you know it.
