Do I Need a Root Canal?
Most often, chronic tooth pain indicates the need for a root canal; however it is not a requirement. Whether through an injury or extensive decay in the tooth, the sensitive center of the tooth, called the pulp, becomes exposed to harmful plaque and bacteria. A root canal removes the pulp and seals the inside from future infection. Other than tooth pain, you may need root canal therapy if you experience the following:
- Darkening of teeth (typically brown, black, or gray)
- Extreme sensitivity
- Pimple-like bump on the gum tissue
- Sensitivity to hot or cold sensations
