The goals of an endodontic evaluation are:
- Determine if you are in need of endodontic (root canal) treatment
- Identify the source of the pain.*
- Discuss your treatment options in easy to understand terms
- Create an action plan for treatment
*Sometimes patients will experience a generalized pain, or “referred” pain might be felt in an area in another area altogether. It is important to note that not all oral pain implies that root canal treatment is necessary. A number of other situations may mimic the symptoms of a “toothache” which may be unrelated!
Your Endodontist will be able to take all of your information into account and determine what is the best course of action to get you feeling great again.
