How Do I Know I Need a Root Canal?

Common signs that your tooth may need root canal therapy include:

  • Throbbing pain
  • Swelling
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Tooth ache

Needing a root canal means that your tooth is infected, dead, or dying.  Despite their reputation, they can be pain free.  See your dentist quickly if you have the symptoms listed because they are likely to get worse.
