Many patients who are suffering from a toothache may not know if its something that a couple of aspirin could fix, or if it’s more serious. If you are experiencing extreme tooth pain and sensitivity, you may need a root canal. Here are some of the signs that show it’s time to visit Dr. Jon Jenson in Orem.
Pain: The most common symptom, as we already mentioned, is tooth pain. This can range anywhere from a mild irritation to extreme pain. The tooth pain may also change or intensify throughout the day. Perhaps you only experience pain when biting with that tooth.
Sensitivity To Hot & Cold: If your teeth give you trouble when eating or drinking anything hot or cold, that’s another sign that you may need endodontic care for your tooth.
Gum Sensitivity: Do you have red or swollen gums near your troubled tooth? Tender gums can also be an indicator of a tooth in need of a root canal.
