If you're one of those persons whose eyes get wide and anxiety floods you at the mere mention of root canal therapy, let us here at Trecartin Family Dentistry ease your mind. We can assure you that with the advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment put to use at our office, you can expect the experience to be comfortable and virtually free of pain. The concerns about the procedure tend to date back many years, but are no longer anything to be worried about.
How do you know that you might need our Clinton root canal? The symptoms that are typical include pain when you put pressure on the tooth or chew with it, sensitivity to foods and drinks that are either hot or cold, tooth discoloration, gum tenderness, and swelling. Not everyone will have all of those signs, but if you have any of them then you should come in for an examination and x-rays. The more quickly that a diagnosis is made and our Clinton root canal is performed, the better the chances are that you will be able to keep your tooth, and that it will remain strong and healthy for years to come. In fact, when done in a timely manner, there is a better than 90% chance of it being successful. You will be numbed before the start of it, of course. Most of our patients report to us afterward that they had very minimal or even no discomfort at all while having the treatment. Once our dentist has removed the infected tissue and cleaned and disinfected the canals, those canals will be sealed off. And after the tooth has healed, a dental crown is put into use to restore the tooth.
If you have any of the indications listed above, be sure to call us right away. You just may need our Clinton root canal, and you should come in as soon as possible to find out for sure.
