A combination of multiple factors determines whether or not a tooth needs a root canal. Dr. Hennawi will evaluate the tooth, symptoms, x-rays and might perform some tests on the tooth before making a diagnosis.
When the nerve inside the tooth is irritated, it sends signals like mild pain, discomfort or sensitivity asking for help, at this stage, more than likely a root canal can be prevented by fixing the issue and removing the cause of irritation.
If the symptoms are ignored, they worsen in intensity and increase in frequency.
A constant throbbing pain that gets worse at night or when lying down is a classic sign that your tooth might need a Root Canal. However sometimes people don’t have pain at all.
If you are having mild pain, discomfort or sensitivity, do not ignore it, act now you’ll probably prevent the need for a root canal.
Imagine a tunnel or a tube, inside every tooth is a tunnel or a canal where the nerve and the blood supplies sits. Some teeth has 1, 2, 3, 4 or even 5 or more tunnels or canals.
A Root Canal Treatment is the process of removing the dead/dying tissue from those canals. After that we clean, sterilize dry and finally 3D fill the canal.
Most often the tooth will require a Crown after a Root Canal Treatment, we will tell you in advance if you need one.
