Clairemont Endodontics

How do you know that I need a root canal?

Indications for endodontic (root canal) treatment include:

  • prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold
  • discoloration of the tooth
  • pain on biting
  • swelling or tenderness of the tooth or adjacent gums
  • the appearance of an abscess on an x-ray

Unfortunately, sometimes there are no signs and symptoms. We will discuss the necessity of a root canal with you at our office since these cases vary a great deal from person to person.
