Chipped, Cracked, Or Broken Teeth
A broken, cracked, or chipped can cause an infection if not treated. If you have recently bit something hard and thought you may have damaged your tooth you should get it checked even if you can’t see the tooth.
If you are experiencing pain in your tooth, face, or jaw and it is constantly bothering you or keeps coming back then you may need a root canal or it could just be a cavity, sinus issues, a failed filling, gum disease or an infected tooth for some other reason.
Swollen gums that sometimes may even be painful to the touch. You may also notice bad breath and/or a gross taste in your mouth

What To Expect
- Depending on your symptoms your dentist might prescribe antibiotics that can help reduce your pain
- Your mouth will be numbed with local anesthesia during the procedure and our job is to make sure you are comfortable and don’t experience any pain.
- You are probably going to have some mouth pain after the procedure and your Saco endodontist may recommend that you take a common over the counter pain medication. And the pain should lessen as time goes on.
- Trust us… the pain will be far less than if you didn’t fix the problem causing the infection
