Have you ever heard the phrase ‘I’d rather have a root canal’ to describe something painful or unpleasant? At Koch Aesthetic Dentistry, we perform root canal (endodontic) therapy routinely for our Birmingham dentistry patients and many report minimal discomfort. Root canal procedures have advanced significantly in recent years. For many Alabama root canal patients, the procedure is no worse than getting a filling.
At Koch Aesthetic Dentistry, our goal is to help our root canal patients avoid the necessity of endodontic treatment by providing skilled dental care. However, if root canal therapy is necessary to preserve a tooth, we provide the most advanced endodontic treatment in Alabama.
How do you know if you need a root canal? See your Koch Aesthetic Dentistry dental professional immediately if you experience tenderness or pain, hot or cold sensitivity, tooth discoloration, tooth injury, gum swelling, gum pain, or lymph node tenderness or drainage. However, for some endodontic patients, there are no symptoms. That is why it is crucial to visit your local endodontic dentist regularly for a thorough dental examination.
