Do you have a toothache? There are many reasons why it may be causing you discomfort. Tooth decay, a damaged filling, a fracture bruxism or infected gums may all be possible causes. It’s also possible, however, that you may need a root canal. A root canal is required when the pulp inside your tooth becomes diseased. If you contact Covington Dental Partners in time, the pulp can save your teeth from a possible extraction.

Here are some common scenarios that characteristically lead to pulp infections and root canal treatments:

– One of your teeth has had multiple dental treatments
– A cavity is left untreated for a long time
– You have suffered an oral accident or injury left you with broken or fractured teeth wherein the root is left exposed
– Injuries emerge in teeth that aren’t visible and bacteria seeps to the root of the tooth
