If you suspect that you need a root canal or have another endodontic concern, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive here at Midtown Endodontist NYC.

How Do I Know if I Need a Root Canal or a Filling?

Sharp, severe tooth pain when you chew or put pressure on a tooth is one of the most common signs that you need a root canal or filling. Other symptoms could include small bumps along the gum near the affected tooth, or the tooth may appear dark or discolored.

Does Tooth Pain Always Mean Root Canal?

Tooth pain is often a sign that there is a serious dental issue, but this symptom does not always need to be treated with a root canal. Many things can cause toothaches. No matter what the cause may be, you should schedule a dental appointment right away.

Do I Need a Root Canal if There Is No Pain?

You may need root canal treatment despite feeling no pain. Teeth that need a root canal do not always hurt — other indicators include swelling, discoloration and sensitivity. If one of these is present, we will check the tooth’s pulp health. If the pulp is damaged or infected, a root canal can prevent further infection and protect nearby tissue.

Do You Have to Have a Referral to See an Endodontist?

You do not need to wait for a referral to see an endodontist. If you are struggling with tooth pain or you have any endodontic concerns, contact Midtown Endodontist NYC.
