Root canals have gotten a bad reputation over the years. People make jokes about them and compare them to various bad experiences. But the truth is that root canals play an important role in helping you maintain good oral health.
A cavity, or even a crack so small that it could be missed during your regular checkup, can allow bacteria to reach the pulp of your tooth and create an infection. That infection can be painful and lead to problems not just for your smile but also your general health. Left untreated, you could lose your tooth. Some indicators that you may need a root canal include:
- Tooth pain
- Sensitivity to pressure or hot, cold, or sweet foods and beverages
- Gum swelling or tenderness
- A pimple on the gums
- A darkening in the color of your tooth
Unlike traditional root canals, rotary endodontics involves the use of a specialized electronic handpiece that will make your visit faster, more comfortable and more effective. If you suspect that you may need a root canal, call our office for more information about rotary endodontics and to schedule your appointment.
