Root Canal Therapy

Dr. Mobley understands that many her patients experience some level of anxiety when visiting the dentist. For those people in particular, the thought of having a root canal may sound terrifying. But the fact is that root canals are very common procedures performed every single day by dentists everywhere. And thanks to modern dental procedures, advanced instruments, and effective dental sedation techniques, having a root canal is neither frightening nor painful. Dr. Mobley is pleased to offer root canal therapy to her patients from throughout the Austin, TX area.

How to Know if You Need Root Canal Therapy

Root canals are typically used when the pulp of a tooth has become infected, and the only way to be certain whether or not you need the procedure is to visit Dr. Mobley for an oral exam. However, there are symptoms you may experience that could indicate a root canal is needed, including the following:

  • A severe toothache that gets worse when you bite down
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks
  • Swollen and/or tender gum tissue around a certain tooth
  • Darkening of a tooth
  • A sore on the gums located close to a tooth

It’s important to remember that you may also need a root canal without experiencing any symptoms whatsoever, which is why it is even more important to attend your routine exam, cleaning and x-rays with Dr.Mobley.
