Signs and symptoms that may indicate root canal treatment is needed can vary. Most of the time patients feel pain when they bite or chew, or sensitivity to hot and cold food or beverages. Other patients notice gum swelling or complain of feeling like they have a “pimple” on their gums. These symptoms may be caused by bacteria which causes decay and as a result of this factors, the patients develops an infection. This infection needs to be stopped as it is not only wreaking havoc in the mouth but can also affect other parts of the body. If the infection spreads to the tooth pulp, a root canal should be performed to clean the bacteria out of the tooth roots so it can be sealed so no more bacteria enters. If infection is not controlled on time, it may spread to other places in the face, brain or throughout the whole body. (There is also a proven relation between heart attacks and oral bacteria.)
