When the tooth’s nerve/pulp is damaged, endodontic care is necessary. The nerve/pulp of the tooth is located in the center. A cavity that continues to grow in a tooth will result in decay to the nerve/pulp of the tooth and causes dental pain. A root canal involves removing the infection from the pulp chamber inside the tooth and sealing it to prevent further bacteria from entering the tooth.

When a dental cavity is left untreated, bacteria that lives in the mouth can cause an infection that can kill/damage the pulp inside a tooth. The infection from that tooth may spread to other teeth and compromise those teeth as well.

Common Symptoms when Root Canal Therapy could be needed include:
  • A toothache
  • Sensitivity to hot, cold, sweet, or sour substances
  • Swelling or inflammation around your tooth
  • Sleepless nights due to dental pain
  • A consistent bad taste in your mouth
  • Constant bad breathe
