A root canal is the treatment of choice for patients who prefer to keep all of their teeth, even when there’s dental decay. It’s an alternative root canalto tooth extraction and replacement that has a high success rate. Many people who have one or more missing teeth ignored the signs that they needed an urgent root canal. If you want to avoid losing teeth, learn these signs and see your dentist Dr. Roland Markarian at Golden Dental in Lancaster, CA. 

Teeth Are Painful or Very Sensitive
Tooth pain is not a normal thing to have to deal with—especially when you feel that pain throughout the day. If you feel aching or throbbing pain in one or more teeth, that is a potential sign of dental disease that will likely require root canal therapy. The pain often radiates throughout the jaw and can even cause headaches. In some cases, sensitivity to hot and cold will be the first sign of dental discomfort. If you bite down on one side of your mouth and feel a very sharp pain that makes you wince, you should see your Lancaster, CA dentist for a checkup as soon as possible.

Boils or Sores on the Gums
When there’s a dental abscess or infection in a tooth, you may see a strange boil or sore develop on the gumline. In some cases, a group of bumps may form near the tooth. Also, when there’s an abscess, pus, blood, and other fluids may start to leak from the gumline. These are not signs that you should ignore if you want to save your tooth.

Breath Problems 
When there’s serious dental decay, a change in your breath may be one of the first signs. A decayed tooth will sometimes emit a foul odor that doesn’t go away no matter how much you rinse or brush your teeth. Bad breath that’s caused by a diseased tooth is often more intense and distinct compared to what your breath may smell like in the morning or after eating.

The only way you’ll know for sure that you need a root canal is if you get your dental issue checked and diagnosed at Golden Dental in Lancaster, CA. Call 661-948-8100 today to schedule an examination with Dr. Roland Markarian.
