Treatment, when needed, is imperative; prevention in the first place is even better!
The best thing for patients is catching a potential problem much before you have symptoms.
If you experience any of these symptoms, please visit our office as soon as possible: heat and cold sensitivity, biting pressure on chewing, throbbing pain, swelling around the tooth, or a draining abscess or bubble on the tooth.
It’s likely these indicate your nerve is dying inside the tooth. Unfortunately, an infected tooth will never heal on its own. So that is when we step in to cleanse the infected nerve inside the tooth and seal it from further infections.
Left untreated, the damaged nerve or infected tooth will lead to bone deterioration or a lost tooth. As you can imagine, not taking care of an infected nerve inside your tooth will impact your overall health.
