What Does the Root Canal Process Involve?
The primary goal of a root canal is to remove the infected tissue inside the tooth. With the help of a topical anesthetic, a small hole is drilled into a tooth. This allows the dentist to remove the source of the infection. Finally, the tooth is cleaned and the hole is sealed. To protect the tooth from further damage or decay, a restorative procedure such as a dental crown is often placed over the tooth.
Are root canals painful?
Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, root canals have moved past the time where they were a stressful, painful procedure. When you’re in the dental chair, the experience won’t be especially different from having a cavity filled. The local anesthetic we use makes the treatment effectively painless. Post-root canal, it’s common to experience minor soreness or tenderness for a couple of days. Fortunately, over-the-counter pain meds are sufficient to make the recovery process easy.
How Much Do Root Canals Cost?
The cost of a root canal can vary from patient to patient, and often depends on the tooth receiving treatment and the severity of infection. We’ll be able to evaluate the condition of your tooth and provide a personalized treatment plan after a consultation. Endodontic procedures fortunately tend to cost less than extracting and restoring a tooth. Dental insurance will also often help to cover a portion of the cost. We believe that quality dental care should be affordable, so If you still have financial concerns, feel free to reach out to our office.Contact Us
