All of us at Northwood Dental wish everyone the best of health and safety in these challenging times.
As part of the Governor's mandate and the recent Pinellas County 'safer at home' initiative, our current hours of operation have been adjusted and many of you may have already been contacted to postpone your dental services.
Other patient services are still being provided in an altered schedule designed for the safety of you, our patients, and for the safety of our Northwood Dental personnel.
We remain ready to care for your dental concerns and are making attempts to send out personalized communications regarding all present and future appointments.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.
The Northwood Dental Team
The only way to remedy infected tooth pulp is to see a general dentist for a root canal in Clearwater, FL. Many people are hesitant to get this treatment, but it is important to get it in order to prevent an infection from spreading and relieve drastic pain you may be experiencing. It will be a lot easier if you get a dental procedure sooner rather than later, so never delay getting a root canal .
5 Common Symptoms for Needing a Root Canal
The following symptoms are prevalent when the pulp inside a tooth has become infected. It is important to bear in mind that a single symptom is a good enough reason to see a dentist. Not all these symptoms will be present, but pay attention to them so that you know when it is time to see a professional.
- Gums around the affected tooth are tender or swollen
- The affected tooth has darkened or looks stained
- Extreme pain is experienced when biting down
- Pimples consistently appear on gum tissue
- Severe sensitivity to hot and cold food or drinks
Steps for Getting Treatment
The first thing you need to do is contact a general dentist. You will likely be asked to describe your symptoms, and the dentist will suggest a time for you to come in. Depending on the severity of the symptoms, you might be asked to come in immediately or in a few days. If you are asked to wait, then the dentist you are speaking with might tell you what you can do in the meantime to reduce the severity of the symptoms.
