Your dentist may notice changes

Your dentist may notice changes

Your dentist may notice changes:

  • In the color of the tooth
  • In the appearance of the gums
  • In the bone or root of the tooth, thanks to the signs seen on radiographs

Sometimes, if the tooth is badly damaged, your dentist may conclude that the pulp of the tooth might not survive.

In all cases, root canal treatment can reduce, even prevent the appearance of symptoms and save the tooth.
