Why Do I Need Root Canal Therapy?

Endodontic treatments may be required when a tooth has decayed past the point where a filling can be used to restore it. It involves extracting nerves from a tooth, cleaning and shaping the cavity, and placing fillers to prevent bacteria from entering the nerve system.

Some reasons you might need endodontic treatment include

  • Spontaneous pain even when you’re not eating or drinking
  • Nighttime pain (nocturnal pain)
  • Discoloured and darkened tooth
  • Tenderness in the gums
  • Extreme sensitivity to HOT and COLD
  • Gum swelling
  • Dead or dying nerves
  • Abscess

Root canals tend to have very high success rates, even though it is an invasive procedure. Although extractions are cheaper, they leave gaps in your mouth, which ultimately may need to be filled with an implant.
