Have you ever heard the phrase ‘I’d rather have a root canal’ to describe something painful or unpleasant? At Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry, we perform root canal (endodontic) therapy routinely for our Lafayette dentistry 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 from your dental professional.
At Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry, our goal is to help our Longmont, Louisville, and Broomfield 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 root canal patients, we provide the most advanced dental care.
How do you know if you need a root canal? See Dr. Gordon West 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 crucial to visit your local dentist regularly for a thorough dental examination.
Call Gordon West DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry, at 720-862-3630 to schedule an appointment.
