How do you know if your tooth may need a root canal?

  • Pain in the same tooth whenever you chew or bite.
  • A tooth that is painfully sensitive to hot or cold foods or drinks
  • A dark or discolored tooth
  • Swollen gums around the painful tooth
  • A sore on the gums that have gotten worse over time

When will an infected tooth turn into an emergency?

Infected teeth can be extremely painful. If the pain is unbearable, or the infection has spread further than the tooth, you need to make an emergency appointment as soon as you can because it can be dangerous to allow an infection to spread in your mouth.

Call Yu Smile Dental to schedule, our team is ready to take your call and address any concerns you might have. 

What Are Root Canals?

  • Root canals usually require two separate office visits to complete. 
  • On the first appointment, we remove the infected root and sterilize the infection.
  • Then we will close the tooth with a temporary filling while the root heals from the treatment.
  • After the tooth has healed, you come back for the second visit. 
  • We will take X-Rays to make sure the infection has healed, 
  • Followed by permanently sealing the tooth and continuing with any other necessary procedure.
