A Closer Look at a Root Canal Infection
Symptoms of a Root Canal Infection
Pain in your teeth or gums
Swelling in your gums or face
Lingering sensitivity to heat and cold
Swollen lymph nodes
Persistent bad taste in your mouth
You may think that you no longer need dental treatment if your pain or sensitivity has gone away on its own. However, this may be a sign that the roots in your tooth have died. Your tooth pulp can still be infected, and the infection can still spread.
Even if your symptoms have resolved, you should still contact our Hamden, East Haven, or Branford practice for an examination. By identifying and treating your root canal infection, our dentists can save you from needing more comprehensive dental care down the road.
We Offer Virtually Painless Treatment To End Your Discomfort and Restore Your Health
You may assume that treatment for a root canal infection is as painful as the infection itself. However, the vast majority of patients report that root canal therapy is nearly painless and quickly works to relieve the discomfort caused by their infections. In addition to ending your dental pain, other benefits of root canal treatment include:
Preserving Your Natural Tooth
By removing the infected pulp during a root canal, our dentists can preserve your tooth and eliminate the need for extraction. The natural tooth structure can be restored with a crown if needed.
Preventing Further Infection
If left untreated, the bacteria from a root canal infection can spread to other teeth or your gums. This dental procedure will prevent the infection from further compromising your oral health.
Contact Us Now If You're In Pain
Pain in your tooth or gums may be a sign of a root canal infection. Without quick attention from a dentist or endodontist, the infection can worsen, and tooth extraction may be the only remedy. The team at Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry of Connecticut can identify the source of your pain and provide treatment to end it.
While endodontists specialize in treating issues of the tooth pulp, our dentists stay up-to-date on the latest techniques and technology used to perform root canals. We can alleviate your pain quickly and effectively without having to refer out to a specialist.
