While there are times when a filling may be sufficient to address a problem with your teeth, other instances may require a root canal. Let’s take a look at when a root canal could be necessary.
- Large or deep cavities typically require a root canal.
- A dead tooth will need a root canal to extract the root.
- Discoloured teeth might also be treated with root canal surgery.
- An extremely painful tooth generally needs a root canal.
“If your tooth isn’t discoloured and you’re only experiencing minor pain or sensitivity, your dentist may be able to repair the tooth with a simple filling.”
