Solutions for Root Canal Problems
Root Canal in Meridian, ID? Let Our Dentist Help You
At times a tooth’s nerve can become irritated, inflamed, and infected. This can be due to deep cavities, large fillings, cracks or chip in the tooth, trauma to your head or neck, and many other reasons, all of which can cause the need for a root canal. If you are in Idaho we have a dentist that can offer affordable root canals in Meridian.
Here are some of the more common signs and symptoms our dentist has seen when a tooth may require a root canal.
Sometimes no symptoms are present; however, signs you may need a root canal include:
- Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
- Prolonged sensitivity/pain to heat or cold temperatures (after the hot or cold has been removed)
- Discoloration (a darkening) of the tooth
- Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums
- A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums
A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is infected, broken or has a deep cavity. During the procedure, our dentist, Dr. Grant, will remove the nerve and pulp which is inside of the tooth, then clean and seal the tooth. The tooth’s nerve lies within the root canal. After the dentist removes the nerve and pulp of the tooth the day-to-day functioning of the tooth should not be compromised. In many cases our dentist will suggest placing a crown to restore the tooth to full function and protect the root canal.
