Do you have a sore tooth?
If a tooth causes you recurring pain and there’s tenderness and swelling near the gums, there’s a good possibility that a root canal therapy is required for your tooth. Other symptoms of a tooth requiring root canal therapy are pimple-like wounds in the gums and a bad taste in your mouth which comes and goes.
Why have root canal therapy?
A root canal therapy is required when the nerve inside the tooth has been exposed to bacteria and is unable to heal itself. An infected nerve or a dead nerve inside a tooth will cause infection of the surrounding bone. When this happens patients are forced to make one of two choices, to have a root canal therapy or to have the offending tooth extracted. A root canal therapy, if correctly done, will extend the life of the tooth and make it a functional part of your mouth again. Teeth which have had root canal therapies normally need crowns placed afterwards.
