Root Canals

What is a Root Canal?

Root canal treatment is designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal, prevent reinfection of the tooth and save the natural tooth. The inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed.

Does a root canal hurt?

More Info
Since patients are given anesthesia, a root canal isn’t more painful than a regular dental procedure, such as a filling or getting a wisdom tooth removed. However, a root canal is generally a bit sore or numb after the procedure, and can even cause mild discomfort for a few days.

How Do I know if I need a root canal?

More Info

Root canals are needed for a cracked tooth from injury or genetics, a deep cavity, or issues from a previous filling. Patients generally need a root canal when they notice their teeth are sensitive, particularly to hot and cold sensations.

u

How much does a root canal cost?

More Info
The cost varies depending on how complex the problem is and which tooth is affected. Most dental insurance policies provide some coverage for endodontic treatment.

Dental Implants

A dental implant can closely be described as a “screw” that is placed in the jawbone. This “screw” replaces the root of a tooth once it is extracted and gives a solid base to attach an artificial tooth, or crown.
