When you need root canal treatment, your will feel pain from the infection of the tooth. At Birch Creek Dental, we understand your concerns and will do all we can to maintain your comfort during your visit. You are given a powerful local anesthetic during your procedure which will numb the tooth, the root, and the adjacent areas.

Some of the signs that may indicate that you may need a root canal treatment in Dillon, Montana include:

  • Inflamed gum tissue
  • Severe soreness and pain in that tooth
  • Darkening in the structure of the tooth
  • Sensitivity to temperature

Once you have had a root canal treatment from Dr. Spencer Hughes you will no longer experience the above symptoms. Without a root canal treatment, our dentist may need to extract your tooth. Your repaired tooth can last a lifetime with proper oral hygiene and care including regular checkups and cleanings. To get in touch with our caring team and arrange your next visit, please call us at 406-683-2550.
