When a tooth becomes infected or abscessed, severely decayed or injured, or a nerve is damaged, you may need a root canal. Symptoms of infection include:

Left untreated, a root canal infection can cause swelling in the face or neck, tooth loss, and infection draining into the gums, cheek or skin. The only alternative to a root canal is having the tooth extracted and replaced with a bridge, implant, or partial denture – far more expensive and time-consuming than a root canal.

OC Family Dentistry can help you determine the best way to save your tooth and your smile.
