Root Canal Symptoms

Infection and inflammation can cause many symptoms to the tooth and gums including:

  • Swollen gums
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Pus around the tooth
  • Loosening of the tooth
  • Intermittent or chronic pain
  • Causes of Nerve Damage

There are many events that can lead to disease or damage to dental pulp. Some of these include:

Deep, untreated dental decay Decay beneath a large filling Trauma that damages a tooth Habitual tooth grinding (bruxism) Advanced gum disease In some cases you may not even know that the pulp of the tooth is infected because your body is fighting hard to control the infection. This will generally be diagnosed via x-rays during a dental check-up or an unrelated treatment visit to our Pennant Hills office. Hills Dental Design is here to help. Often times the most difficult part of going to the dentist is booking the first check-up. Maybe you haven’t been for a while or don’t like the idea of the dental chair – whatever your reasons are for putting off your check-up, the most important thing to understand is that at Hills Dental Design, we are here to help you personally.
