In either case, two classic symptoms indicate the need for root canal therapy near you. As a comprehensive dentist in Stockton, CA, Dr. Sunen Pandya has the experience, technology, and equipment needed to perform safe and worry-free woot canal therapy near you. If you have the above symptoms or any ones that follow, please call us to schedule root canal treatment for quick pain relief.
Additional Symptoms You May Notice
In addition to sudden, sharp pain and discomfort when chewing, patients may also experience the following:
- Moderate and lingering tooth pain when eating or drinking hold or cold foods.
- Being awakened during the night with pain.
- A bubble of infection on your gum around a tooth is painful.
There’s no doubt that needed tooth canal therapy symptoms can be painful. But the good news about timely treatment from a dentist near you like Dr. Sunen Pandya is that the pre-procedure pain is almost immediately relieved post-procedure. We have patients who often tell us that if they knew the treatment would provide so much relief, they would never have waited to make an appointment. Please note, however, that if your infection is too painful to treat immediately, Dr. Sunen Pandya may prescribe antibiotics first to reduce the infection. Patients often experience relief from their dental pain shortly after their antibiotic protocol has started while waiting for their procedure date.
Infected Roots or Something Else?
Rather than continue to wonder if root canal therapy is needed to improve the symptoms you’re experiencing, please make an appointment with our dentist in Stockton, CA, for an examination to determine the exact cause of your discomfort. Dental pain is not always a sign that a root canal is needed, but it is a sign that a visit to the dental office is needed.
