Bluffside Dental offers root canals and treatment to their Red Wing, MN patients.
When the inside of a tooth is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. The tooth can get infected and may cause pain if this tissue is not removed. A root canal treatment helps to remove this tissue while saving the natural tooth.
Signs and symptoms you may need a root canal include:
- Any kind of bothersome pain
- Tooth discoloration
- Gum irritation or swelling – could include bleeding
- X-rays could find some signs of infection
The reason that it can be painful is due to the nerve endings housed in the root of your tooth. If that is infected, that is what causes the pain. Root canals are then the next step, they can also be recommended to save an infected tooth.
Insurance coverage on this matter can vary. Some insurance companies cover part of the treatment while others can cover the entire procedure.
If you need a root canal or think you may need one, please call our caring staff at Bluffside Dental at 651-388-5492, to discuss your situation.
