Dental Root Canal Treatment Near Cincinnati

Root Canal Specialists near Cincinnati & Mason

A root canal procedure is a dental treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. During the procedure, the dentist removes the pulp and nerve of the tooth, cleans and disinfects the inside of the tooth, and seals it to prevent further infection.  

Why do I Need a Root Canal?

This procedure is necessary when the pulp of the tooth becomes infected or damaged, usually due to severe decay, repeated dental procedures on the same tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. A root canal can help alleviate pain and save the natural tooth from needing to be extracted. 

How do I Know if I Need a Root Canal?

Some common signs that may indicate you need a root canal include persistent tooth pain, especially when chewing or applying pressure to the tooth, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures that lingers even after the source of the temperature is removed, swelling or tenderness in the gums near the affected tooth, and a darkening or discoloration of the tooth. Additionally, if you notice a pimple-like bump on the gums near the tooth or if you experience a foul taste or odor in your mouth, these could also be signs that a root canal is necessary.  

If you have noticed any of the symptoms above, you need to schedule an appointment with the Kings Dental team now.
