When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected, a root canal is often necessary.
If you have a severe toothache when you chew or apply pressure, or one or more teeth are very sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, you may have a damaged or exposed nerve. After Dr. Bundalo examines you, a root canal may be recommended.
However, in many cases, if a toothache is treated early, a root canal may not be necessary. It’s important that you come and see us promptly if you are experiencing any pain in your mouth!
Is a root canal painful?
LB Dental uses the WaterLase cold laser for many of our surgical procedures, in order to provide a pain-free experience to our patients. Besides being pain-free, because of the precision of the WaterLase cold laser, healing time after surgical procedures is also reduced dramatically!
