Early Signs of Root Canal Infection
While nearly everyone has heard about the throbbing pain that often accompanies an infection of the root canal, there are early symptoms you should be aware of to avoid the pain that comes when the infection reaches the blood vessels and nerves in the pulp. Common early signs include:

The Pain Disappeared...
Do I Still Need Treatment?
Root canals do not heal on their own. If you had an infection and the pain has stopped it likely means the nerve in the pulp has died. However, the infection still remains and can spread to other teeth, your blood, or your brain. Timely treatment not only keeps the bacteria from spreading but can also save your tooth from having to be extracted. Once a tooth is lost, dentists typically recommend a dental bridge or dental implant to restore your smile and a healthy bite.
