Have you ever heard the phrase ‘I’d rather have a root canal’ to describe something painful or unpleasant? At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry, we perform root canal (endodontic) therapy routinely for our Alexandria restorative dentistry patients and many report minimal discomfort. Alexandria 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 cosmetic dental professional.
At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry, our goal is to help our Springfield, Washington DC, and Annandale 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 for one of our greater Alexandria area root canal patients, we provide the most advanced endodontic treatment in Alexandria.
How do you know if you need a root canal? See your Mt. Vernon Center for 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 Alexandria endodontic patients, there are no symptoms. That is why it is crucial to visit your local Alexandria family dentist regularly for a thorough Alexandria dental examination.
