DO I NEED ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?
You may need endodontic treatment if your tooth has decay to the nerve, or if you have suffered trauma to the teeth.
When teeth are traumatised the nerve usually dies.
This can cause pain but sometimes you may not be aware of anything. An x-ray of the tooth usually diagnoses whether root canal treatment is required or not.
Sometimes infection can get to the nerve of the tooth from gum disease.
