If you have tooth pain you typically first see if it just goes away over time. The bad news is that tooth pain does not typically just go away, so this first response is not the best response. If and when your tooth pain does not go away, the second step is to set up an appointment with a dentist to do a comprehensive examination of your tooth and mouth to discover what is causing you your pain in your tooth. There are times when your tooth pain may require endodontic dental care. But the question often asked is: “How do I know if I need endodontic dental care?”
The simple answer to that question is that you most likely won’t know exactly when it’s time to receive endodontic dental care, only a dentist (after careful examination) can determine if this type of treatment is required in your particular case.
Endodontic dental care is usually required if you need a root canal therapy. This is required if you have an infection such as a cavity that reaches your tooth’s roots. If left untreated it will infect your pulp and nerves and kill your tooth. Endodontic treatment can also include specialized care for a traumatic tooth injury.
