Have you ever heard the phrase ‘I’d rather have a root canal‘ to describe something painful or unpleasant? At Marty W. Lindahl, DDS, we perform root canal (endodontic) therapy routinely for our Maryville TN area general dentistry patients and many report minimal discomfort. Knoxville root canal procedures have advanced significantly in recent years. For many root canal patients, the procedure is no worse than getting a filling from your Knoxville dental professional.
At Marty W. Lindahl, DDS, our goal is to help our root canal patients in the Maryville TN area avoid the necessity of endodontic treatment by providing skilled general and cosmetic dental care. However, if root canal therapy is necessary to preserve a tooth for one of our root canal patients, we provide the most advanced endodontic treatment in the Maryville TN area.
How do you know if you need a root canal? See your Marty W. Lindahl, DDS 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 Maryville TN dentist regularly for a thorough dental hygiene examination.
