April is Stress Awareness Month. One thing you shouldn’t stress about is root canal treatment. While the procedure has a bad reputation, it’s undeserved. If your tooth is infected, you can save it with this procedure. Plus, it will get you out of pain.
As Dr. Chet explains, today root canals are easier on the patient than they were in the past, thanks to modern dental equipment and better medicines. At our office, you also have the option of receiving soothing dental sedation.
When infection gets inside your tooth, the only two possible treatments are a root canal or extracting the tooth. You’ll recover more quickly and easily from a root canal. Plus, your tooth stays in place, so you won’t need to worry about replacing it.
If you’ve got a toothache or notice a tooth appears discolored, call Carmichael Dental Care at 334-600-1423 ASAP to see us in Montgomery, AL. We’ll determine the problem and the best solution for treating it – whether it’s a root canal or something else. If you’re in pain, we’ll do our best to see you on the same day.
