Root Canals

root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed. Over 14 million root canals are completed every year. Root canals are performed when the pulp at the center of your tooth is inflamed and/or infected. The pulp is a collection of blood vessels helping build your tooth. When infected, you may experience:

  • Injury or swelling of the tooth
  • Sensitivity to temperature and/or chewing
  • Pain in the tooth and gums

Infection can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks, and chips. Regardless of how your pulp infection was caused, your dentist will recommend treating it with a root canal.

Root Canal Process

Root canals are performed to eliminate the diseased pulp. During a root canal treatment, your dentist will:

  1. Apply local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort
  2. Remove injured pulp from the center of your tooth
  3. Clean and seal the root canal system

A root canal may require 2 visits depending on your specific situation. Success occurs in 90% of cases. If your tooth is not responsive to endodontic treatment, you’ll be informed during the consultation or when a complication becomes evident.

After Your Root Canal

You’ll be able to drive home after your treatment and return to your normal routine. You should contact your dentist within a few weeks for a follow-up restoration. It’s rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine treatment, but if any problems arise, you should contact our office. To prevent further decay, continue practicing good dental hygiene.

Is the root canal uncomfortable?

Most patients report root canal discomfort is no more than having a filling placed. Our restorative dentists use local anesthesia and will make every effort to assure your comfort during the procedure.

Root Canal Cost

The cost of a root canal varies depending on several factors, including the severity of damage to the tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.
