Root Canals in Palm City, FL
When a tooth becomes infected or abscessed, severely decayed or injured, or a nerve is damaged, you may need a root canal. Symptoms include:
- Painful chewing
- Heat/cold sensitivity
- Tooth discoloration
- Gum swelling, tenderness
- Or no symptoms; only a dental exam or x-ray will discover it
Left untreated, a root canal infection can cause swelling in the face or neck, tooth loss, and infection draining into the gums, cheek or skin. The only alternative to a root canal is having the tooth extracted and replaced with a bridge, implant, or partial denture – far more expensive and time-consuming than a root canal.
Historically, root canals have gotten a bad rap, being associated with pain and suffering. Due to advancements in technology, that is no longer the case. Root canals are often a painless procedure that can allow a patient to keep a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted.
