Do I need Endodontic Therapy?

Symptoms that indicate that the pulp inside of the tooth is injured include prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness to chewing, discoloration of the tooth, or swelling or tenderness in the tissues adjacent to the tooth. At times, no symptoms are present.

The most common reasons for damage to the pulp are deep cavities, cracks, chips, or trauma. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess. Rarely, an infection from a tooth can become life-threatening.

Dr. Burns will thoroughly evaluate your condition to determine if endodontic therapy is indicated.
