Have you been experiencing extreme discomfort in your tooth that is continuing to worsen? Or do you have a tooth that has been previously filled and is bothering you? If this sounds like what you are experiencing, we may recommend a root canal treatment. Thanks to television, movies and social media, root canals are often portrayed as a treatment that is full of pain, leaving patients fearful of this treatment method. Thanks to modern technology and updated dental techniques, a root canal treatment is safe, gentle and an excellent way to save your tooth.
