Are you in need of a root canal? Many people have preconceived notions as to what that means, but many are based on myths. This is one of the simplest procedures we can offer to help heal up an infected or decaying tooth. It takes very little time, is incredibly effective, and allows you to go back to your life with very little down time. Let the professionals here at Fiddlesticks Dental help restore your oral health with root canal treatment.

The Basics of a Root Canal

A root canal is a simple procedure where we remove the diseased pulp of the tooth. From there, we go into the canal at the root of your tooth and remove the nerve. This is to alleviate your pain and help improve your oral health. Our endodontist will then clean out the canals, put medication in the void, and seal up the tooth. Typically, a crown goes over the top because it is a great way to keep your tooth strong and healthy.

Signs You Need a Root Canal

There are common signs among patients who need root canal treatment. If you notice any of these symptoms, please call us to set up an appointment:

  • Swollen lymph nodes on the underside of your jaw
  • Gum or tooth pain, sometimes with tooth sensitivity or discoloration
  • Pus draining from your gums or an infected tooth
  • One or several teeth that hurt when pressure is applied
  • A swollen dental abscess near pain in your mouth

All of these symptoms tell us that your tooth needs saving. When you have any of these symptoms, we schedule an appointment and confirm your diagnosis. Patients who do need a root canal will have the procedure as quickly as possible. Most root canals take a single visit, but there are times where a second is necessary.
