A root canal is more than just a dental procedure; it's your ticket to reclaiming a healthy, pain-free life. Not only does it alleviate immediate suffering, but it also prevents future oral health problems.

How Do I Know If I Need a Root Canal?

If you're grappling with relentless tooth pain, heightened sensitivity to hot or cold, or notice darkening or swelling around a tooth, you could be a candidate for a root canal. Our experienced dentist, Dr. Byron C. Desbordes, provides comprehensive examinations, including x-rays, to determine whether a root canal is the best course of action for you.

What Are the Signs of Needing a Root Canal?

Besides persistent pain and sensitivity, signs that you may require a root canal include tender or swollen gums, a bad taste in the mouth, and a raised bump on your gums, often known as a dental abscess. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, especially in the Baltimore, MD area, a timely consultation can make all the difference.

How Long Does Recovery Take?

Most people find that recovery from a root canal is surprisingly quick. The procedure itself usually takes about an hour at our Baltimore, MD office. Post-procedure, you might experience some tenderness or mild discomfort for a few days, but most of our patients are back to their normal routines within 24-48 hours.

Are Root Canals Safe?

Root canals have a reputation for being daunting, but advances in dental technology have made the procedure safer and more comfortable than ever. Dr. Byron C. Desbordes and our team employ state-of-the-art equipment and local anesthesia to ensure a pain-free, efficient experience.

Root Canal Aftercare Tips

After your root canal, it’s important to follow certain guidelines to ensure a smooth recovery. This includes avoiding hard or sticky foods for a few days, regular brushing and flossing, and possibly taking over-the-counter pain medication if you experience mild discomfort. We may also recommend crowning the treated tooth for long-term protection.
