If you’re wondering if you need a root canal treatment, then the best thing to do is to always contact AV Dental Wellness Group and schedule an appointment with our dentists, Dr. Peyman Kafri, and Dr. Amanda Jenney. Your dentists will be happy to meet with you, examine your smile, and provide the treatment if it’s necessary. To help you have an idea of if you need treatment or not, our dental team is happy to tell you the signs that indicate the need for root canal treatment, which are:

-A severely painful toothache (The toothache is typically so uncomfortable that you cannot apply any pressure to the tooth or use it to chew)
-An infection in the nearby gums (The infection typically presents itself as a recurring pimple near the tooth that oozes)
-Prolonged sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures (Sometimes the cold air even makes the tooth ring with pain)
-Tooth discoloration (The tooth will likely get darker in color)
-Swelling in the nearby gums (The gums will be inflamed and puffier than usual)
-Tenderness in the surrounding gums (The gums will be sore to the touch)
