If you experience any of these dental symptoms it’s time to give us a call.root canal

In many cases, people don’t even experience symptoms if they are having an oral health problem. This is why it’s so very important to take time out of your schedule twice a year to visit our White Lake, MI, family dentist Dr. David Campbell. Dealing with a tooth that has an infected or inflamed dental pulp is nothing to mess around with.

While you might not notice that all signs are pointing to a problem, you may start to notice some dental pain or sensitivity. This is often the very first symptom that there is something wrong. While dental pain doesn’t necessarily mean that you will need a root canal, pain doesn’t typically go away on its own and will require immediate care from our White Lake, MI, dentist. When you come into our office we will ask you questions regarding the symptoms you’ve been experiencing.

Of course, coming in every six months for regular dental care is very important. As we mentioned before, not everyone experiences symptoms, so the only way you will find out if there is an issue is when you come in for routine cleanings and exams every six months. We have the specialized training to detect certain issues such as tooth discolorations or changes to the soft tissue that you may not see or notice but are telltale signs to us that there is an issue. We will also perform some tests to determine if the dental pulp, the inner structure of the tooth, is infected or irritated.

If we determine that there is damage to the pulp and it needs to be removed, the best way to do this is through root canal treatment. This procedure is performed right here in our office. By removing the pulp we could potentially save the rest of the tooth from needing an extraction. Once the pulp is removed we will also need to fit the tooth with a dental crown to protect it and restore its appearance.

At the first sign of dental pain, you need to call our White Lake, MI, family dental office today. We will get you in to see Dr. Campbell right away for treatment so that we can get your oral health back on track.
