About Root Canals
A root canal is a procedure to replace infected pulp within the root canal with an inert material. Only a dentist can determine if a root canal is necessary, and they make that determination with an exam and x-rays. Root canals are performed in order to save a tooth that is seriously infected.
Signs You May Need a Root Canal
If you have any of these symptoms, call AAdams Dental Care to set up an appointment. While there is no guarantee until a thorough exam, a root canal may be in your future.
A severe toothache in which pain worsens when pressure is applied
Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
Discoloration or darkening of the tooth, especially a grey color
Swelling and/or tenderness on the gums
A pimple on the gum that is difficult to be rid of or will not stay away
About Tooth Extraction
Tooth extraction is a procedure in which a tooth is loosened and then removed from the gum socket. It is a minor surgical procedure that is performed with the patient locally anesthetized.
Reasons for Tooth Extraction
The most common reason a tooth may need to be extracted is severe damage caused by tooth decay. This typically occurs when appropriate dental care has been neglected. Preventative care, including regular dental check-ups, will reduce the chances of needing a tooth extraction, but there are other reasons it is sometimes necessary.
Severe infection that isn’t clearing up with antibiotics
Periodontal (Gum) Disease
Infection in a compromised immune system
