Many people assume that root canal therapy is one of the more difficult or uncomfortable dental treatments out there, but this is actually not the case. In fact, if you’ve had a dental filling completed before, you’ll be surprised to learn that root canals feel quite comparable! Furthermore, allowing your dental infection to develop will only result in more discomfort, not less. With our team of dental specialists ready to serve you, you can rest knowing that your treatment will be even smoother than you initially expected!
The symptoms of needing a root canal are pretty straightforward, but the only way to know for sure is to visit our office for an exam. If you begin to notice significant discomfort in your tooth, a constantly bad taste in your mouth, facial swelling and inflammation, and a high fever, you are likely experiencing an oral infection that requires immediate treatment. During your exam, we can perform X-rays and screenings using our intraoral camera to not only confirm the need for root canal therapy, but show you why as well.
