    Root Canals

    Root Canals

    A root canal becomes needed when tooth decay is so badly neglected it reaches the tooth pulp. Once the pulp is infected it cannot heal on its own. Sometimes tooth trauma such as a fracture can lead to the need for a root canal as well. In addition to being painful, untreated infections can reach the root tip and compromise the entire immune system. 

    Symptoms of pulp infections may be:

    • Sensitivity to hot/cold
    • Sensitivity to sweets
    • Pain, especially when biting
    • Swelling
    • Bad taste in the mouth

    A root canal procedure includes cleaning out the infected pulp, disinfecting the canals and filling the void with a rubber-like substance to prevent further infection. Sometimes a crown is recommended to restore the tooth shape, look, and to strengthen the tooth structure.

    Awesome!

    I had a pain in my incisor that was exacerbated by my tooth whitening gel. Doctor Tobin filled the cavity and now the pain is gone. Also, I got to hear a great music playlist that he put together for our drilling session! Awesome!
