Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is a procedure used to treat severely decayed or infected teeth. Symptoms of a root canal infection include swelling of the gums and face, increased sensitivity to temperature and severe toothache. If left untreated, the infection can result in abscesses and ultimately, tooth loss.
A dislodged tooth has been partially pushed into or out of its socket or sideways during an injury. If this happens, your dentist is trained to treat the tooth. The tooth is often repositioned and stabilized, but root canal treatment is needed within a few days following the injury to save the tooth.
Fractures or cracks can occur rapidly or slowly over some time. This can be painless for the patient or can cause severe discomfort. Determining the location and severity of the crack will determine the course of action for the tooth, although many cracks can be treated with conventional root canal therapy.
