Root Canal Treatment

When it comes to dental health, there’s no doubt, the best care is preventative care.

But there may be a time when a root canal becomes necessary. A root canal, known as endodontic treatment may be required if there is inflammation or infection within the soft tissue of the tooth.

 If you have been experiencing any of the following symptoms, you should consider a visit to the dentist for a full evalution.

  • General, persistent tooth discomfort
  • Throbbing
  • Swelling around the gums
  • Pain in response to chewing, biting or other pressure on the tooth
  • Mouth discomfort that wakes you from sleep
  • Gum tenderness

Our dentists will conduct a thorough examination, and discuss further treatment options with you.
