Root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. 

The term "root canal" comes from cleaning of the canals inside a tooth's root. Decades ago, root canal treatments often were painful. 

With dental advances and local anesthetics, most people have little if any pain with a root canal. In fact, it's probably more painful living with a decayed tooth. 

Root canal alternatives include extracting the damaged tooth and replacing it with a dental implant, bridge or removable partial denture.

Signs that You may need a Root Canal: 

  • You have a severe toothache upon chewing or applying pressure. 
  • Your tooth feels sensitive to heat and cold even after the hot or cold food or material has been removed. 
  • Your tooth may darken, indicating deterioration. 
  • Swelling or tenderness may occur or you may see a persistent or recurring "pimple" on the gum. 
In less common cases, there are no symptoms, but regular visits to your dentist for exams will reveal if you need a root canal.
