Root Canal Treatment Explained
A tooth in need of a root canals has a deep-seated infection. If left untreated, it’s possible for the infection to spread to surrounding teeth and your gums. While symptoms vary, you might be in need of a root canal treatment if:
- Your tooth is sensitive to hot or cold
- Your gum is swollen or tender around your tooth
- Your tooth hurts when you use it to chew
- You have tooth pain that comes and goes throughout the day
If it’s determined you do need a root canal, Dr. John Moore will begin your appointment by numbing the appropriate area of your mouth. He’ll then enter the narrow channels inside your tooth and clean out the infected pulp. He has a series of files he will use to treat the roots of your tooth.
