Experienced Root Canal Procedures in Portland, OR
Dental pain can be more than a minor annoyance. In fact, that pain is often a sign of damage or decay. If you suspect you might need a root canal in Portland, OR, turn to our capable team for relief. Our dentists at Emergency Tooth Doctor can determine the cause of your pain and help you set up an appointment right away.
What Are the Signs You Need a Root Canal?
A root canal is often an intimidating step to take, and you may even want to avoid this treatment option. But certain oral problems benefit from — and even need — this treatment. Discuss your situation with one of our dentists if you notice one or more of the following:
- Discoloration: Your tooth is darker than the surrounding teeth.
- Pain: The symptoms can range from mild to severe.
- Swelling: Your gums near the tooth are tender.
- Tooth sensitivity: Your tooth is sensitive to hot and cold temperatures.
Ice and over-the-counter medication can help relieve the symptoms while we get your dentist appointment set up.
