Anytime a patient hears the words “root canal,” we see their faces cloud over with a look of dread. Root canals have a reputation for being painful and complex. Often, dentists refer patients to a specialist for the procedure adding to their discomfort and inconvenience.
Comfortable root canal treatment
We offer root canal therapy right here in our own Madera dental office. Dr. Keledjian is an expert when it comes to root canals and knows how to keep you comfortable and relaxed for your procedure. There is no need for you to have to wait for an appointment at another office where you don’t know anyone.
Root canals have a bad reputation not usually because the procedure itself is particularly painful or difficult, but because the symptoms leading up to diagnosis can be. Some of the symptoms include:
- Sensitivity to hot and cold
- Sensitivity to touch
- Facial swelling
- Jaw pain
- A pimple-like eruption on your gums
Why it is important to treat them
Waiting to make an appointment to see if the pain and symptoms go away often makes them worse. Sometimes, the pain becomes unbearable in the middle of the night or while you are traveling, so it is always best to call us to rule out any serious problems right away.
Having root canal therapy actually relieves many of the symptoms and provides immediate improvement for many of our patients. The healing process is straightforward and within a few days, you should feel significantly better.
If you have residual symptoms, we can help you with pain management and monitor your progress to make sure you heal properly. Once you heal completely, we may recommend a crown to protect that tooth from damage in the future.
