When Do You Need A Root Canal?

If you have injured a tooth — or if you have a decayed tooth — you might need a root canal procedure. It helps to know when to see the dentist. 

Key takeaways:

• A cracked tooth may gradually develop into bigger problems. So, follow up with your dentist as soon as you injure a tooth as you may have a fracture. 

• Patients with tooth sensitivity may eventually end up getting a root canal. This occurs when the injury or decay has extended to the roots of the tooth.

• If you have a discoloured tooth, then a root canal may be just around the corner. An infected tooth begins turning grey or black, which may later require a root canal.

If you’re experiencing any of these signs or symptoms, schedule a visit with your dentist as soon as you’re able. The condition can become very painful if you neglect it.
