Signs You’ll Notice

As a patient, these symptoms will be the most obvious to you:

  • Pain: This can range from dull aches to sharp pains as well as from mild to severe. You may also feel throbbing and the pain may be inconsistent.
  • Gum Tenderness: Tender and swollen gums near the affected tooth may occur. The swollen areas may or may not experience pain when touched.
  • Increased Symptom Frequency: While at first symptoms might be sporadic, they usually increase in frequency and duration.
  • Varied Symptoms: You may experience a combination of these symptoms in various degrees.

Signs Your Endodontist Will Notice

Dr Michael Baharestani DDS Root canal specialist in Great Neck will use these signs to indicate a root issue:

  • Radiolucency: In a routine X-Ray, your dental professional may notice ark spots indicating a damaged root.
  • Gum Boils: The official name is fistulous tracts, but most patients refer to these pimple-like occurrences as gum boils. They typically form at the tip of the tooth root.
  • Darkened Teeth: A single or standout darkened tooth may indicate inner root problems.
  • Exposed Tooth Nerve: An exposed tooth root is a clear indication for professional intervention.
