If you have been told you need a root canal or suspect that you might, now is the time to call and make an appointment. Dr. Scott Norton is a practicing Endodontist in Louisville, KY who performs an exam on all patients prior to treatment. To save time for his patients, Dr. Norton will typically do both the exam and root canal, if needed, in the same visit. Dr. Norton always examines the tooth / teeth in question to make certain that a root canal is necessary.
October is here, leaving less than two months remaining in our calendar year. Therefore, if you have dental insurance coverage left, now is a perfect time to use it. The old saying goes; “use it or lose it” (your insurance that is). In addition, the longer a tooth it is left untreated, the worse it can get. As the busy Holiday season fast approaches, do yourself a favor and have your tooth treated now. There is nothing worse than trying to enjoy your holiday activities with a throbbing toothache that could be prevented.
So whether you think you need or know that you need a root canal, now is the time. Please feel free to give Dr. Norton’s office a call. When the holidays and the new year come around, you’ll be glad that you did.
