Are you wondering if your decayed tooth has passed the need for a filling and has graduated to the need for a root canal? If so, your dentist, Dr. Kevin Bowcutt, will be more than happy to help you. All you need to do is schedule an appointment! In fact, it’s best to schedule an appointment as soon as possible so you can repair your tooth.

To give you an idea of if you need a root canal treatment or not, our dental team is happy to tell you the symptoms of a decayed and infected tooth root, which are:

-Severe tooth pain (Severe enough that you have stopped using the tooth altogether)
-Infection in the tooth or surrounding gums (Sometimes the infection will appear as a pimple on the nearby gums)
-Tooth sensitivity that lasts for a long period of time (The sensitivity is typically to hot or cold temperatures)
-Discoloration of the tooth (The tooth will generally get darker)
-Swelling in the surrounding gums (The gums will puff up)
-Tenderness in the nearby gums (The gums will hurt when touched)
