What happens if I don't get my recommended root canal?

Are you living with a toothache that's keeping you up at night? Maybe you experience pain, tenderness, or sensitivity when you chew and eat your food? These are the signs and symptoms of a tooth infection.

If your White Bear dentist has recommended root canal treatment for your tooth, you likely have a tooth infection. This can be very painful to the point where the discomfort may distract you from your normal daily activities.

Not delaying root canal treatment is essential because tooth infection will worsen if left untreated. In fact, it can actually spread to neighboring teeth and even into other critical areas of your body, like your brain.

During a root canal, your dentist carefully removes the compromised tissue inside your tooth, ensuring it's infection-free before sealing it temporarily with a filling. After allowing it time to heal, you'll return to your dentist to strengthen your tooth with a crown to ensure you can eat and chew with ease again. 

Root canal treatment eliminates your tooth infection while protecting the integrity of your natural tooth.
