“I have a deep cavity, and my dentist has referred me to an endodontist”
“I have a toothache, I think I need a root canal, but I heard it’s painful”
“I have had root canal but my tooth still feels uncomfortable”
“I don’t want to take out my tooth, is there a way to save my tooth?”
These are all usual comments from patients seeking an endodontist.
If you suffer from toothache, have been told by your dentist that you have a very deep cavity, have been suggested root canal treatment by your dentist, or have had root canal treatment before but have not had follow ups in a long while, we suggest that you
make an appointment soon with an endodontist, who is a specialist in saving teeth.
Tooth decay, also known as cavities or caries, will not heal on its own. Once the decay reaches the pulp (the nerve chamber) and becomes inflamed, it is called pulpitis. Pulpitis can lead to pulp symptoms that can vary in severity and type. They can range from sensitivity to cold and hot, to throbbing and excruciating pain that can disturb your sleep. Even if you experience no symptoms, it is recommended that you seek regular checkups and follow ups to prevent late discovery and delayed treatment, leading to unexpected pain and ultimately the loss of tooth or teeth.
Please consult our dentists for more details.
