When Should I get a Root Canal?

A root canal becomes essential when a tooth becomes infected. Without a root canal, an infected tooth can cause significant pain, result in an abscess, and even fall out completely, which can lead to a number of other issues. Endodontic treatment is the only way to preserve an infected tooth and prevent serious problems down the road.

If you live in or around Houston and are suffering from an infected tooth, please contact  Scott Young DDS or call 832-610-3123 to schedule an endodontics appointment with Dr. Scott Young.   Symptoms of an Infected Tooth   You may need a root canal if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of an infected tooth.
