How Do You Know If You Need Root Canal Therapy?

The most common symptom for understanding if you need root canal therapy is tooth pain. A toothache varies as some individuals experience mild pain while others suffer intolerable pain. However, the magnitude of the pain may diminish as the day progresses. Furthermore, you may experience sensitivity, especially with hot food or liquid.

Other warning signs that you need root canal therapy include:

  • Swollen and tender gums near the problem area
  • Dark tooth color
  • Evidence of drainage from infection
  • Changes and asymmetry in soft tissues around the tooth

During your exam, your dentist identifies which tooth or teeth show signs of infection. Next, additional testing and evaluation take place for proper diagnosis. Tests include one or more different methods, such as thermal testing, percussion testing, x-ray evaluation and electric pulp testing. Lastly, your dentist also checks the status of dental restorations, gum health, sensitivity and tooth strength.
