Are Root Canals Painful?
Many people worry about destructive and severe pain when they think about the root canal procedure. In fact, root canals end your suffering. If Dr. Gostigian recommends a root canal to you, it is most likely the best dental treatment to save your tooth. Root canals are performed on millions of teeth every year, and many of them relieve people of chronic pain.
If the pulp (the inner part of your tooth) becomes infected, then a root canal is necessary to remove the infected portions of the pulp and save the tooth. The infection itself is the most painful part—before the root canal procedure takes place. The longer you wait to see your dentist, the longer you'll have to live with the pain. Don't suffer needlessly when Dr. Gostigian can help you immediately.
Do I Have an Infected Tooth?
If you notice that it hurts to bite down, or you have swelling and unusual pain and sensitivity, you may have an infection. Contact your Bonita Springs, FL dentist, immediately to diagnose and treat your pain. The sooner you come in for treatment; the more likely Dr. Gostigian can save your tooth. Once your tooth has been filled and restored with a dental crown or filling, you shouldn't feel any more pain or discomfort.
