Root canals have a bad reputation. But at Deerhaven Family Dentistry in Traverse City, MI, we want to turn that reputation around while saving you from losing a tooth! If you experience any of the following symptoms, it could mean the nerve of your tooth is exposed or infected:
- a severe toothache
- pain when chewing or when pressure is applied
- prolonged sensitivity to temperatures
- dark discoloration of the tooth
- swelling and tenderness in the surrounding gums
Our team at Deerhaven Family Dentistry in Traverse City, MI may be able to save your problem tooth with a simple root canal procedure.
Dental work can be daunting for many people. We care about your concerns and will go above and beyond to ease your mind and ensure that your experience is a positive one.
Since comfort is one of our top priorities, most root canals we perform feel similar in sensation to having a tooth filled. Call us to schedule an appointment, and we’ll handle the rest.
