Teeth are like any other part of the body.
Sometime they may have a funny little pain here or there.
Sometimes these pains may come one minute and then are gone the next.
Sometimes however, the pains come and stick around for a while.
So how do you know if your tooth is in real trouble or just having
a little irritation that will go away quickly?
Well, there are 3 questions that we typically ask people to
determine the extent of their tooth trouble.
#1 Does your tooth hurt with hot and cold temperature change?
#2 Does your tooth hurt to chew on?
#3 Does your tooth hurt when you are just sitting
around doing nothing (reading, watching T.V., etc.?)
If you answered yes to all 3 of these then you, more then likely,
need to have a root canal.
However, if you answered yes to only 1 of the questions then
perhaps it will be a little easier of a fix.
No matter what it is always a good idea to have a dentist chekc
out your teeth if you think something is going wrong.
