Tooth decay can become so severe that it puts your entire tooth at risk, not just the portion that’s visible in your smile. In the event that your tooth becomes infected, Dr. Tolliver and his team take all the steps necessary to save your tooth, not just outright extract it. With root canal therapy, you can give your damaged tooth a second chance. To schedule your next root canal therapy or confirm if treatment is needed, give our office a call!
There are many symptoms that imply that you need to have a root canal procedure performed. For example, if you notice severe discomfort or sensitivity in your tooth that does not go away, it’s likely a sign that serious decay or infection is present inside the tooth. You may also find it very difficult to bite down or chew food. If your tooth appears to be black, brown, or a dark shade of yellow, it means you’ll need to get to our office right away for closer examination. The last thing you should do is put off your treatment.
