Patients generally need a root canal when they notice their teeth are sensitive–particularly to hot and cold sensations. Symptoms you might need a root canal include:

  • Severe pain while chewing or biting
  • Pimples/ Swelling (around the teeth) on the gums
  • A chipped or cracked tooth
  • Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold, even after the sensation has been removed
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • Deep decay or darkening of the gums
  • Pain coming from a particular tooth bothering sleep at night.

Although you may be numb for 2-4 hours following the procedure. Advised against eating until the numbness is completely gone.
