How do I know if I need a root canal?

In order to give you an accurate answer about your oral health, we need to perform a comprehensive oral evaluation. We welcome new patients and look forward to treating you like family.

There are a few telltale signs that can indicate the need for root canal therapy. If you experience the following symptoms, we advise you to contact us right away. This will give us a chance to help get you back on track to good oral health.girl in dentist chair | root canal | monroe township nj dentist
