Unfortunately, tooth decay, oral trauma and dental infections happen and at AGN Dental, we have the technology and expertise to help you. If you have an abscessed (or infected) tooth from any of the above causes, a root canal may be needed to save the tooth. A root canal is a way to clean and shape the inside of your tooth, we use special rotary instruments which conform to the shape of the canal, so that it can be sealed with a filling materials designed to clear up the infection and allow you to save your tooth.
Some signs that you may need a root canal include:
- Swelling of the gums or face
- Tooth Discoloration
- Fracture or cracks in your teeth
- Sensitivity to hot, cold or sweet foods
- Pimples on the gums
- Severe pain when chewing or unexplained face pain
After the completion of a root canal filling the tooth may need a tooth colored filling or a crown and a supportive post to properly restore your tooth.
