Aren’t sure if you need root canal therapy? Our dentists in Plymouth, Ann Arbor, and Clarkston, MI, may recommend root canals to save abscessed teeth. That way, we can help you save as much natural dentition as possible.

Here’s what else you need to know about root canal treatment at Michigan Main Street Dentistry.

Why Would You Need a Root Canal?

You may need a root canal to treat a tooth with infected dental pulp. Pulp is the living tissue inside your tooth that contains the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues. It feeds your tooth the nutrients it needs to remain strong and healthy.

Once this pulp is infected, we’ll need to perform the root canal procedure. That way, we can save the tooth and prevent the infection from spreading to the rest of your body.

How Do You Know You Need a Root Canal?

You may exhibit several signs that you need root canal therapy. However, some people display little to no symptoms at all when they have a dental infection. For this reason, it’s important that you don’t skip your routine checkups with the dentist.

You may need a root canal if you experience:

  • Persistent tooth pain
  • Prolonged sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Dark discoloration of the tooth
  • Swollen gums
  • Chipped or cracked tooth
  • Pimple on the gums
  • Loose tooth
  • Pain when touching the tooth
  • Pain while eating

If you recognize any of the above root canal symptoms, it’s important that you call our office as soon as possible. During your appointment, we’ll be able to diagnose and treat the source of your pain so we can restore your oral health as soon as possible.
