Are you experiencing discomfort in your mouth and wonder whether you might need root canal therapy? Our dentists at Richmond Dental Care are here to answer your questions about root canals and provide the care needed to help you move past the discomfort you’re experiencing. We’re currently accepting new patients, and our Endodontist near you look forward to providing you with the relief for dental pain you’re looking for.
Although an dental examination is needed to fully diagnose your oral distress, some of the most common signs that indicate the need for a root canal can be found by answering the following questions:
If you answered yes, to one or more of the above questions, even if you are not experiencing pain, there is a good chance that you’re a candidate for root canal therapy.
The most common reason for pain associated with the need for root canal therapy is that the tooth’s roots have become infected. However, there are instances when patients do not experience any pain because the infection has not yet reached the nerves of the tooth’s roots. When you visit our dentists in Richmond Hill, ON for your comprehensive exams, the x-rays taken during those preventive appointments will let us know whether there is an infection that needs to be treated before it becomes painful.
Likewise, suppose you’ve been involved in an accident or injury in your mouth area. In that case, even if you don’t notice any damage to your teeth right now, we encourage you to visit our dentists for an x-ray to ensure that you haven’t incurred a hairline fracture that could manifest into a painful infection in the future.
