Red Flags You Need Victoria Root Canal Treatment

Of course, that starts by listing some of the symptoms and red flags that should tell you it’s time for a root canal.

Severe Pain 

We put this one at the top because it stands to reason that if you are suffering a lot of pain you need to find out how to stop it. If the pain interrupts your sleep that’s a good indication that you need a root canal. If it persists long after you’ve eaten something hot or cold, you should make an appointment to see us right away.

A Gum Pimple 

That headline isn’t a mistake—having a pimple near your gumline is often another indication you need to have Victoria root canal treatment. If you have an infected tooth, swelling can actually move out from the gumline to your neck, head and ears.

Keep in mind there are certain circumstances where an infected tooth shows no symptoms at all.

Victoria Root Canal Treatment Facts 

Once you recognize the symptoms and have decided to go ahead with a root canal, there’s some other information you’ll need. For example, we recommend getting a crown done after the procedure because a root canal can make a tooth brittle and dry.

At the beginning of the process we will numb your tooth and use a rubber dam where necessary so the area is dry and free of saliva. The first step is to drill a hole in the tooth. After the infected bacteria is removed, we will use a special tool to clean out the canals in the tooth and prepare it for further cleaning.

Once everything has been prepared, we will fill the canals and then finish the process off with a filling and a crown. If you have questions, our Victoria root canal treatment experts are happy to answer them.
