Symptoms that Indicate a Root Canal is Needed

If you experience any of the following symptoms, it may indicate that you require a root canal:

Severe Tooth Pain

Intense pain when biting, chewing, or applying pressure to the affected tooth.

Temperature Sensitivity

Persistent sensitivity to hot or cold substances, which may linger even after the stimulus is removed.

Swollen Gums

Swelling and tenderness in the gums surrounding the affected tooth.

Tooth Discoloration

Darkening or discoloration of the tooth, indicating internal damage.

Pus or Drainage

The presence of pus or foul-smelling discharge around the tooth may indicate an infection.

The Root Canal Procedure

At Dimond District Dental, our root canal procedure is performed with precision and care, following these essential steps:

Examination and

Our dentist will conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays, to assess the extent of the infection and determine if a root canal is necessary.


Before starting the procedure, we will administer local anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the root canal.

Pulp Removal

To begin the root canal, a small access hole is created in the affected tooth to gain access to the infected pulp. The damaged pulp is then carefully removed from the root canals.

Cleaning and Shaping

The interior of the tooth and its root canals are meticulously cleaned, disinfected, and shaped using specialised instruments.

Root Canal Filling

Once the tooth is clean and free from infection, the root canals are filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha. This material seals the canals, preventing reinfection.


Depending on the extent of the damage, a dental crown may be recommended to protect and strengthen the treated tooth. A crown will restore the tooth's appearance, functionality, and strength.

Root canals are long, narrow tubes in the pulp of your tooth that reach down into your tooth’s roots. The canals contain sensitive nerves and blood vessels, which is why an infection in the root canals is painful.

Your Diamond District Dental dentist performs a root canal procedure to remove the infection and strengthen your tooth. A root canal prevents your tooth from extraction or loss.

Your tooth and root canals become infected if trauma or decay damage the protective layer of enamel. Cracks, holes (cavities), and other breaks in the enamel allow bacteria to pass into the dental pulp. The pulp contains sensitive connective tissues, blood vessels, and nerves that become infected and inflamed.

When your tooth and root canals are infected, you may experience one or more of the following:

  • Severe tooth pain
  • Pain when eating
  • Persistent sensitivity or pain after eating something cold or hot
  • Darkened or discolored teeth
  • Swollen, lumpy, red, or painful gums

If you don’t treat an infected tooth, the infection can spread to other teeth, cause the loss of your tooth or teeth, and even enter your bloodstream to create a severe condition known as sepsis.

Your Diamond District Dental dentist has two options for treating your tooth and preventing the spread of infection: extraction or a root canal procedure. The root canal preserves your natural tooth, which prevents your other teeth from slipping out of place and preserves your jawbone.

Your Diamond District Dental dentist makes your root canal procedure comfortable and pain-free by:

  • Injecting the site with anesthesia  
  • Drilling a small hole in your tooth to remove the infection
  • Cleaning and disinfecting the hole
  • Filling the hole with a rubbery substance called gutta-percha to stabilize your tooth
  • Finishing the tooth with a new crown that matches your natural teeth

Once your gums and tooth have healed, your stabilized tooth can be treated just like your other teeth.

As soon as you have the symptoms of an infected tooth, call your Diamond District Dental dentist or book an appointment online.
