Have you ever heard the phrase ‘I’d rather have a root canal’ to describe something painful or unpleasant? At Jim Erpenbach DDS, we perform root canal (endodontic) therapy routinely for our patients and many report minimal discomfort.
Root canal procedures have advanced significantly in recent years. For many root canal patients, the procedure is no worse than getting a filling.
At Jim Erpenbach DDS, our goal is to help our root canal patients avoid the necessity of treatment by providing vital dental care.
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 patients, there are no symptoms. That is why it is vital to visit your dentist regularly for a thorough dental examination and dental cleaning.
Call Jim Erpenbach DDS, at 865-584-8630 to schedule an appointment. We are dedicated to the highest standard of dental care.
