Root Canal Treatment

A root canal treatment is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. 

It can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.

WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL?

  • At the center of your tooth is PULP which contains blood vessels and nerves.

  • Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures.

  • Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.

HOW IS A ROOT CANAL PERFORMED?

  • This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed.

  • This therapy usually involves the local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. 

  • Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. 

  • If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. 

  • You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.

HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?

  • The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. 

  • In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.

To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.
