Root Canal Therapy
- Toothaches that greatly affect daily living (chewing, keeping patients up at night)
- Extreme sensitivity to hot and cold
- Lingering sensitivity
- Darkening and discoloration of a single tooth
- Gums swelling around the tooth that is infected
Dr. Knight has encountered teeth that need root canal treatment that have no symptoms at all! This is usually detected during routine exams. Signs can be a non-painful discolored tooth...(usually a front tooth with a history of trauma), and/or a visible abscess, detected during x-ray review. THE IMPORTANCE of ROUTINE EXAMS can not be overstated!!!
