Patients might feel prolonged sensitivity or pain from a tooth due to heat or cold or sometimes spontaneous. There could be several reasons for this
Tooth decay is very extensive and the nerves (pulp) inside the tooth get infected
Gum problems sometimes might damage the nerves present in tooth (perio-endo lesions)
Rarely the reasons could be unknown
In these situations two options available
1. Tooth removal or extraction
2. Saving the tooth by doing root canal treatment if the tooth is restorable
We offer both options and provide both services to patients.
Extractions or tooth removal
If a patient wishes to have a tooth removed we recommend them to think of tooth or teeth replacement options at additional costs.
If you prefer to save the tooth you might need to consider Root Filling
