But not all patients feel any symptoms of an infected tooth, which is why it is important to schedule comprehensive preventive oral exams. At Alexander Dentistry, we advise patients to visit of Jacksonville dental office twice a year so that we can accurately check the mouth, teeth, and gums for any sign of dysfunction.

What is the root canal recovery period like?
After most procedures, patients may feel some sensitivity or pressure after their root canal. Most symptoms can be relieved with an over the counter pain medication.
