A root canal is a tooth-saving procedure that is necessary when decay has reached the pulp, or root of the tooth. We understand that the term “root canal” may seem intimidating, but thanks to advances in technology, they are no longer the scary procedure they are commonly associated with. We make sure that each of our patients are entirely comfortable during the simple procedure.
It is a very important procedure to have if you are experiencing this level of decay, because if it is left untreated it could lead to even more complicated, expensive and painful dental issues.
A root canal may be necessary if:
- You experience intense pain when you bite down or apply pressure to a tooth.
- You experience discomfort and sensitivity when your tooth is exposed to a hot or cold temperature.
- Your tooth has tenderness and possible swelling around the gum.
- Your tooth has become discolored.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible so we can determine the proper treatment course for you.
