Root canal therapy is one of the most misunderstood treatments in all of dentistry. If you have infected teeth, root canal therapy is an effective general dentistry treatment that offers pain relief and could save your teeth. Painful or sensitive teeth are common signs of infection. When the pulp of the tooth is infected, root canal therapy is typically the only treatment that will address the problem.
Discoloration, usually resulting in the blackening of the tooth, is another symptom of infection. If you attend regular cleaning and checkups with Tejal A. Kakade, DMD, MAGD, PC, your dentistry team will typically pick up on any potential issues before you even realize there is a problem. It is important to seek dental care if you are experiencing pain or discomfort when eating and drinking, or you notice tooth discoloration.
