You figure there may be nothing wrong with your tooth. Or, perhaps you have a small cavity. After all, your toothache is very mild, so you assume all is well but you know it’s best to visit us for a diagnosis. Rather than walking away with a clean bill of oral health or a need for a filling, we tell you that you require root canal treatment. How is this possible, you wonder? Your tooth feels fine some of the time and the discomfort isn’t severe! We understand your confusion and would love to fill you in on the details you’re missing.

Severe Problems Don’t Always Include Pain

It’s extremely important that you keep something in mind about mild toothaches that arrive with an infection: They act as a reminder that serious problems are not always accompanied by severe pain. Or any pain at all for that matter! Rather than assuming a comfortable smile is a healthy smile, it’s always best to see us twice a year. As a result, even if you’re feeling good but something is wrong, we have the opportunity to find it, treat it, and restore your smile free of additional complications!

You Don’t Have Time To Wait

You may assume that since your toothache is mild, you have a lot of time to wait. You might think you don’t really need the root canal now and that you’d rather wait until you feel something that seems it actually warrants the need for advanced restorative care. Unfortunately, if you wait too long, you may surpass the opportunity to receive a root canal and may instead end up requiring an extraction. When you let severe decay and infection progress too far, there is no saving the tooth! So, don’t wait. Schedule treatment immediately.
