We Care About Your Comfort
When people hear they may need a root canal, they often feel nervous anticipating pain or discomfort. When you are a patient at Waterside Dental in Bradenton, there is no need to be afraid of a painful procedure because we utilize gentle techniques and offer sedation dentistry for our patients with dental anxiety.
We care about your comfort and your health so if our dentist recommends a root canal it is to ultimately save your tooth from extraction, and to help alleviate pain.
If left untreated, an infected tooth can lead to a painful and dangerous abscess
The Waterside Patient Experience
Do I Really Need a Root Canal?
You might need a root canal if you have infection in your tooth that has reached the inner most part of the pulp chamber. This infection can lead to tooth loss or even reach down through the root of your tooth to infect your jawbone.
Abscesses can cause a build-up of pressure and extreme pain, if left untreated, complications with infections can even become life threatening. An infected tooth will not heal on its own and will only get worse with time. It is vital to seek treatment immediately.
