“I was having severe tooth pain from a recent crown and after trying to get into my dentist for several days without any luck, Mabank Dental got me in immediately. They were caring, and after x-rays, it was discovered that I needed a root canal. I was given antibiotics for a possible infection. I am very pleased with the care at Mabank Dental. I am very disappointed in my old dentist, but happy that I am now on the right path at Mabank Dental.”
Root canals have a bad reputation. But at Mabank Dental & Orthodontics, we want you to know that they don’t have to be traumatic. And, having one could keep you from losing a tooth. If you’re experiencing 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 Mabank Dental & Orthodontics may be able to save your problem tooth with a simple root canal procedure.
