Are you suffering from the excruciating pain that is resulting from a badly decayed or infected tooth? Well, Dr. Alan J. White is happy to help you with root canal treatment in Staunton, Virginia.
Root canal treatment is generally needed when the pulp inside your tooth is decayed or the nerve of your tooth is infected. This usually results in the following symptoms:
- Experiencing severe toothache when you chew or apply pressure to the tooth
- Continued pain that occurs when you eat or drink a substance that is a hot or cold temperature
- Darkening of your tooth
- Swelling in the nearby area
- A persistent pimple on the nearby gums
Root canal treatment has the reputation of being painful, but our dentist does his best to give you the most comforting and pain-free experience possible. If you suffer from a decayed or infected tooth, we strongly recommend coming into our office right away. If you do not do so, the swelling could spread to other areas of the body, you could lose bone along the tip of the root, or drainage problems could occur in your tooth. These are all very serious consequences that need to be avoided.
To finally eliminate the throbbing pain you are feeling, call our office today and schedule an appointment.
