Increasing sensitivity of a tooth, spontaneous raging toothache and discomfort when chewing are amongst the most common symptoms that could indicate the need for root canal treatment.
Root canal investigation procedure
Following your consultation, a further investigative procedure may be recommended to determine how far any decay has spread, if there is an abscess and how many root canals are affected.
We have a number of specialists in root canal treatment (Endodontists) who your dentist can refer you to for treatment.
