Have you ever heard the phrase “I’d rather have a root canal” to describe something painful or unpleasant? At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD, we perform root canal therapy for our patients and many report minimal discomfort.
Root canal procedures have advanced significantly in recent years. For many patients, the procedure is no more stressful than getting a filling.
How do you know if you need a root canal? You should talk to us 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 people there are no symptoms. At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD, we offer root canal therapy, along with a full range of emergency and general dentistry. Patients from North Waldorf, East Huntingtown, and South Laplata also come to us for our calming sedation options, which help manage any discomfort that might arise during a visit. Contact us today!
