The mere words “root canal” make most people cringe. But the truth is, sometimes a root canal is necessary to save a tooth. We encourage our patients to pay close attention to their overall oral health, especially when there are signs of infection.
So how do you know if you might need a root canal? Here are 5 reasons you might want to consider talking to Dr. Jon Jenson at Cascade Endodontics in Orem about whether or not you need a root canal:
- Intense tooth pain, especially when chewing or applying pressure on the tooth.
2. A tooth injury that causes visible trauma to the tooth.
3. Darkening of the tooth.
4. Sensitivity to temperature that continues even after the hot or cold item has been removed.
5. Swelling in the gums, or lesions that look like pimples recurring on the gums.
Just because are suffering from any of these, this does not necessarily mean that you need a root canal, Utah County.
