5 Signs You Need A Root Canal Procedure

Tooth Sensitivity

After drinking a hot or cold beverage, you may feel lingering sensitivity in your teeth due to the liquid’s temperature. The discomfort can range from a dull ache to acute pain.  

Swollen Gums

Tender or swollen gums might indicate tooth or root damage. The affected areas of your gums will feel especially sensitive when touched.

Severe Pain

Tooth Discoloration

If a tooth turns a dark color, the root may be damaged. Pay attention to any changes in the color of your teeth and gums.

Pimples On The Gums
