Affordable Root Canal Procedure to Save Your Smile

Root canals are relatively simple dental procedures that involve cleaning infection out of the tooth canal.

What is a Root Canal?

When somebody says they are getting a root canal, it may conjure up ideas of a painful dental treatment that involves surgery or multiple visits. This is far from the truth! Root canals are relatively simple dental procedures that involve cleaning infection out of the tooth canal. They are necessary when the tooth becomes infected. In almost all cases, the root canal will save your tooth and can be taken care of in just one visit.

When the inner chamber of the tooth has become infected, there is a risk of damage to the supporting bone. A root canal involves accessing this inner chamber and clearing out all of the infected tissue. We then sterilize and fill the canal with a special material. This strengthens the tooth and we can cap the tooth with a crown to strengthen it. Getting a root canal as soon as one of our doctors suggests it can protect you from painful and costly procedures in the future. Eradicating the infection prevents further damage and protects the tooth structure.

  • Symptoms and Treatment

    Signs You Might Need a Root Canal

    • Chronic tooth pain
    • Sensitivity to hot and cold foods
    • Small bumps on the gums near the problem tooth
    • Darkening of the tooth itself
    • Tenderness, swelling or inflammation around just one tooth
    • Pus buildup or tightness around the base of the tooth

    Are Root Canals Painful?

    In many cases, the root canal can be performed under local anesthesia. This will numb the entire treatment area for a few hours so we can get to work and restore the tooth relatively quickly. Our team has extensive experience performing root canals at the practice and do everything we can to minimize discomfort. You should not feel any pain during and after treatment. Coming to us also means you will not have to visit an endodontist or other specialists for treatment.
