An infected tooth will not always cause pain initially so you may be unaware of the problem. As the infection develops, so does the severity of the pain.
- A tooth with severe sensitivity when you bite your teeth together
- Sensitivity to hot and cold that lasts for longer than a few seconds
- Swelling of your face or gum near the infected tooth
- A tooth that is changing colour and becoming grey or black
- A tooth with deep decay
- A fracture in the tooth
Our dental clinic provides root canal treatment using specialized rotary instruments, ensuring your treatment is performed faster, smoother and with more comfort for you.
The longer you delay your root canal procedure, the more severe the pain and extensive the infection can become. This can cause irreversible bone and gum damage and there may be no alternative other than to extract a tooth that could have been saved.
The sooner root canal treatment is performed, the easier and more successful the procedure. If you have sustained an injury to your tooth, you should have it examined sooner rather than later.
