Root Canal Treatment

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.
