A crack in the tooth produced either by mishap, gum disease, or by a cavity, can lead germs directly to the inside of the tooth. When in contact with germs, dental pulp – essential to the health of your teeth – can decay quickly. A root canal allows you to keep your tooth rather than having it extracted.
We perform precise, pain-free, cost effective root canals for patients experiencing pain from extensive decay, tooth trauma, or gum disease.
The following may indicated decaying dental pulp:
- Pain in the ears, neck, and head
- Discolouration of your teeth
- Swelling in your gums
- Enhanced level of sensitivity to cold and hot drinks/food
- Swelling in the jaw
