While many people associate root canal therapy with dental discomfort, the reality is if you want to avoid future pain and save your tooth from needing an extraction, root canal therapy is a great option. We make sure to numb your tooth and surrounding tissue effectively before beginning root canal therapy in Mesa, AZ, so you feel as comfortable as possible beforehand.
For most cases, it’s clear when root canal therapy is needed to treat and save a tooth. If you have severe dental discomfort that does not go away and you experience a fever, it’s likely that an infection has developed and you need treatment as soon as possible. Furthermore, if you notice this discomfort as well as a darkening of your tooth that appears dark yellow, gray, brown or black, it likely needs to be treated.
