Signs & SymptomsA tooth may require a root canal due to a variety of factors. Some of the most common causes for a root canal include traumatic injury to the mouth, deep decay, or a crack or chip on the affected tooth. You may need to consider endodontic treatment if you encounter any of the following signs and symptoms:
- Moderate to severe lingering toothache pain when drinking hot or cold liquids or foods.
- Moderate to severe pain when biting on a tooth
- Sensitivity to tapping or pressure on the tooth
- Toothache that wakes you up in the middle of the night
- A pimple on your gum that may release pus or blood
- Radiating pain from one area of the mouth to another
Even with extensive decay or infection, it is possible to save a tooth with a root canal. This treatment can prevent the necessity for more complex and expensive procedures, such as extraction and dental implants.
