Recognize Signs and Symptoms of Root Canals
Root canals are performed when the tooth or teeth are infected due to cracked or fractured tooth. They are performed when you have an infection that usually starts with a cracked tooth or cavity that moves deeper and deeper until it begins to infect the actual nerve itself. Sometimes there is a history of injury in the past or discoloration of the injured tooth. If you have these symptoms, you most likely have:
- Extreme tooth pain, even waking you up at night
- Swollen gums surrounding the problem tooth
- Highly sensitive teeth that are affected by hot/cold and chewing
In order to treat these symptoms, a tooth is drilled allowing Dr. Shroff to remove pulp skillfully out of the tooth. Roots are thoroughly cleaned and root canal filling is placed. Root canal teeth are non-vital (dead) teeth but they function in a normal tooth after being restored with the crown.

When Is Root Canal Therapy Needed?
When a cavity is left untreated, it can completely eat the inside of the tooth, making it hard to do normal activities like biting and chewing your food. In cases like this, it’s important to restore your tooth with root canal therapy. Dr. Hector Naranjo at Evolution Dentistry in Parkland, FL, can help you understand when root canal therapy is necessary to help restore your smile both aesthetically and functionally.
How Root Canal Therapy Can Help You
When a tooth is infected from an untreated cavity, it can lead to more serious issues that can affect both your smile and can even affect your body as a whole. Your dentist in Parkland, FL, can examine your tooth and help you determine if a root canal is the right choice to help your smile and strengthen your tooth again.
A root canal is usually thought of as something that is painful and scary, but it’s actually the complete opposite. Root canal therapy helps relieve your pain and strengthen your smile when you’re dealing with infection and irritation.
Your dentist will first numb the affected area to help keep you feeling comfortable throughout the entire process. Your dentist will then create an opening in the top of your tooth to expose the damaged and irritated pulp inside of your tooth. They will then clean out the infected pulp, helping to relieve your tooth of pain. Your dentist will then fill your tooth with a rubber-like material, helping protect your tooth from any further infection or damage from happening inside the tooth. They will then seal the tooth, which will stop bacteria from getting inside your newly restored tooth.
