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.

These may include:

Tooth infection may also result in issues such as fever, swollen lymph nodes in the neck, or even muscle spasms in the jaw.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of an infected tooth, please contact our experienced Houston endodontist today. Dr. Young provides endodontic services for people living in Houston as well as The Woodlands, Conroe, Spring, Kingwood, and surrounding areas of Texas.
