Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is performed when a tooth's nerve has been damaged beyond repair. While Dr. Raphael Arwas determines whether a root canal procedure is necessary or not, there are several signs people can look out for that may indicate they need a root canal. One of the most common signs of a Root Canal is tooth pain, ranging from minor discomfort to severe.
If you require a root canal also exhibit extreme sensitivity to temperature. While teeth typically react to cold temperatures, a normal reaction goes away fairly rapidly while one caused by a damaged root lingers after the cold stimuli is gone. The affected tooth may also darken in color compared to those around it and the gum above the tooth may swell.
