Endodontics (Root Canal)

Endodontics is the term used for the dental procedure called root canal therapy. Root canal is necessary when the nerve or blood supply of the tooth is infected due to injury or decay. Root canal treatment involves removal of the diseased pulp, followed by the cleaning and sealing of the pulp chamber, and followed by a restoration.

Root canal therapy is NOT painful when properly performed in a tooth that has not yet reached the point of becoming a dental emergency. Do not make the mistake of waiting until you have severe pain before seeking advice about root canal therapy. If you think a tooth has symptoms that could signify a need for root canal therapy, contact Dr Peter Poulos for advice.

Symptoms that might indicate the need for root canal therapy include:

Significant, constant pain in the tooth and surrounding area
Increased symptoms specifically when you lie down
Sensitivity to hot or cold
Pain upon chewing on that tooth
Darkening of the colour of only one tooth
Appearance of a pimple on in the gum.
