What are typical symptoms of root canal infection?

A root canal infection can be painful and pose a risk to your tooth. If left untreated, an infected tooth may be unsalvageable and require extraction. If you have any root canal infection symptoms, please schedule an appointment with your dentist in Bellevue, NE. Early treatment can relieve your pain and protect your smile's health. 

Common symptoms of a root canal infection include:

  • Severe or lingering tooth pain
  • Swollen or puffy gums
  • Dark or red gums 
  • Gum sensitivity 
  • Bad breath that won't go away
  • Abscess or bumps on the gums or around teeth
  • Tooth discoloration 

A root canal infection can be severe and lead to other oral health and medical issues. The disease can spread to other areas of the mouth and body, resulting in a heart attack, stroke, or sepsis. Without a root canal, your dentist may also have to extract the tooth to protect your oral health and ensure the disease doesn't progress.
