Follow your endodontist’s instructions carefully.”
- “When do I know if I need a root canal?”
There are many telltale signs that you may need a root canal, including extreme sensitivity to hot and cold foods, numbness or discomfort, difficulty chewing or biting, and severe pain in the area. Your dentist may also be the first to notice the issue and diagnose a need for a root canal procedure.
