A Root Canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed, cracked, traumatized or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

Sometimes no symptoms are present; however, signs to look for include:

  • Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
  • Prolonged sensitivity/pain to heat or cold temperatures (after the hot or cold has been removed)
  • Discoloration (a darkening) of the tooth
  • Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums
  • A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums
