It’s a common misconception that root canal therapy is a difficult or uncomfortable treatment to complete, but the reality is it’s actually not much different than what you’d experience while receiving a dental filling. When a tooth becomes severely decayed, infected, or damaged as a result of injury, you don’t necessarily need to have it extracted. Whether you’re here for a routine exam or visiting for a dental emergency, we’ll do everything possible to begin your root canal therapy when you need it as soon as possible, so don’t wait to call and end your dental discomfort with root canal therapy in Jacksonville, FL!
The most common sign that you may need to have a root canal performed is when you’re experiencing significant dental discomfort or sensitivity that comes and goes (or doesn’t go away at all.) However, there are other key signs to look out for as well. For example, if you notice your tooth changing in color (typically a dark brown, gray, yellow or black) or there are pimple-like bumps developing on your gum tissue, now is the time to give our dental office a call and get scheduled.
