ROOT CANAL SYMPTOMS 

It is possible that in a routine check-up with your dentist, you may be informed about the need for a root canal, which is one of the least invasive dental treatments.

Endodontics, or root canal treatment, aims to preserve a tooth that, if left untreated, would have to be extracted. Therefore, root canal treatment is the last resort to save a diseased tooth and prevent the patient from having to have a prosthesis or implant to replace it.

TRIGGERS OF ROOT CANAL SYMPTOMS

Two main reasons can cause this damage:

 •   When the tooth has received a strong blow and, whether it breaks or not, the tooth loses its vitality.

 •   Due to a cavity that has not been treated in time and the infection reaches the dental pulp.

Root Canal symptoms

• Tooth sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity can indicate that the tooth enamel is worn down, but it can also be due to problems with decay or a fracture; in these cases, you may have a root canal symptom.

The level of tooth sensitivity that warrants a root canal is extreme. If you feel discomfort not only when drinking hot or cold beverages, but you also suffer from hypersensitivity without even putting anything in your mouth, for example, cold wind, it is advisable that you schedule an appointment with your dentist in Oxnard, Santa Paula, Ventura, Port Hueneme and Newbury Park to take a look at it.

• Chewing pain or sudden pain

Chewing should not represent any discomfort if your teeth are healthy. Therefore, the fact that it hurts to chew is an indication that there is a problem. Even if you cannot see any alteration in your teeth or gums with the naked eye, but you still feel pain or discomfort when you eat, you may need a root canal.

Even without chewing, there are cases in which people who need a root canal treatment experience sudden sharp pains in one of their teeth.

• Darkening of a dental piece

One of the most common causes you may need a root canal for is after a trauma or a blow to one of your teeth.

It is possible that one of your teeth has broken and you didn’t realize it. If the trauma affected the tooth’s nerve, you will begin to notice discoloration changes in the tooth because the area is no longer receiving the same blood flow as before.

• Gum inflammation

Root canal treatment is required when the root of the tooth is affected, as we already know, by decay or trauma. Being a problem in the pulp, it is usual that the gums or other soft parts surrounding the tooth become inflamed.

Inflammation in your gums may also indicate that you suffer from an infectious process in the root so that you will need a root canal more urgently.

•Bad taste in the mouth and bad smell

If there is an infectious process affecting the root of your tooth and it is not taken care of in time, the infection can create an abscess with pus that will generate a strange taste in your mouth and halitosis. Root canal treatment provides the ideal cleaning and treatment to overcome these two uncomfortable symptoms.
