Root canal disease symptoms

"Dr. Jarvis, what are the most common symptoms of endodontic (root canal) disease?"

  Root canal disease can manifest itself with a wide variety and combination of symptoms. Common symptoms of endodontic disease include:
Lingering sensitivity to cold liquids.
Lingering sensitivity to hot liquids.
Sensitivity to sweets.
Pain to biting pressure.
Pain that is referred from a tooth to another area, such as the neck, temple, or the ear.
Spontaneous toothache, such as that experienced while reading a magazine, watching television, etc.
Constant or intermittent pain.
Severe pain.
Throbbing pain.
Pain that may occur in response to atmospheric pressure changes, such as when flying or scuba diving.
Pain that may occur in response to postural changes, such as when going from a standing to a reclining position.

If you have any of these symptoms, it would be wise to visit us at Parker M Jarvis DDS & Associates Inc because you might have root canal disease or another dental problem.  Some of these symptoms may also be attributable to decay, defective fillings, periodontal diseases, cracked teeth, or other tooth or bite-related problems.  On other occasions, the symptoms may even be caused by disorders that are not related to the teeth.
