Untreated cavities can lead to teeth loss. While some cavities only require fillings, others need root canal therapy. How do you know which one you need?
– Fillings are sufficient when the decay hasn’t progressed to the third layer of the tooth or to the pulp.
– Root canal therapy is necessary where the cavity has eaten into the nerve tissue of the tooth.
– Radiating pain, sensitivity to hot and cold foods, and discolouration are signs that you need root canal therapy.
– A root canal procedure will end the intense pain.
Visit the dentist immediately, to save your teeth.
