Patients are sometimes surprised by the news that they have a cavity that needs to be treated. This is because dental decay can be identified during a dental checkup even before it starts to cause uncomfortable symptoms. If you already have problems with tooth pain, or if you have a tooth that is unusually sensitive, it can be a sign that a problem is growing serious and requires prompt care. Our Riverside, CA dentist’s office is ready to evaluate a tooth that is making you uncomfortable. Proper treatment may call for root canal therapy, which is used to address problems with infection that can occur when a cavity has moved through a tooth’s enamel.

Pain And Sensitivity Issues Should Not Be Taken Lightly

Writing off issues with pain and sensitivity can lead to more than just prolonged discomfort. By continuing to ignore signs that something is wrong, you can let a cavity or unidentified injury worsen, which means more permanent harm will affect the tooth. Discomfort can be your warning that you need to do something about an infected tooth. If treatment does not occur in time, bacteria that are multiplying within the tooth can move through its roots and create problems elsewhere. It is possible for so much damage to occur that your dentist has no option remaining besides the performance of a tooth extraction.

Arranging Treatment For Advanced Tooth Decay

If pain or sensitivity are being caused by a severe cavity, your dentist can treat it by providing root canal therapy. Through this procedure, we are able to safely clear out bacteria and infected tissues before sealing the tooth’s pulp (the inner chamber) and capping the tooth with a dental crown. The sooner this is done, the sooner you can be through with active discomfort. Making treatment a priority will also make you less likely to need an extraction.
