Root Canal Therapy: Is Root Canal Therapy Needed?
It’s a challenging question to answer without a full examination of the tooth in question. At this exam we will take radiographs to assess the health of the tooth, take measurements of the gum tissues surrounding the tooth, listen to your symptoms and possibly complete some other assessments to determine the vitality of the nerve within that tooth. Root canal therapy is often needed to address active infection within the nerve chamber of the tooth, sometimes caused by trauma or injury or possibly due to decay that has spread to the nerve of the tooth. After a thorough evaluation of your tooth, we will discuss with you the options we feel are in your best interest. It is important to understand that no two people’s experiences are alike, therefore we encourage you to ask questions and discuss any concerns with your dentist.
