When tooth decay has progressed far enough into the pulp you may have severe toothache, sensitivity to heat or cold, pain with biting or pressure, tooth discoloration, and swelling around the affected tooth. These symptoms may indicate the need for a root canal treatment where the pulp of a tooth is treated in an effort to maintain a healthy tooth.Do I need antibiotics before a root canal?
For an infected or abscessed tooth, antibiotics are started before completing the root canal. The first step in the procedure is to take an X-ray that displays the entire tooth to see the shape of the root canals. Next, to keep the area dry and free of saliva during treatment, a rubber dam is placed around the tooth.
