Root Canal

Root Canals relieve pain and help to restore teeth to normal functioning state

A compassionate, professional root canal will relieve your pain and restore your teeth to a normal functioning state. If you have regular pain or severe pain when you chew your food, a root canal might be the solution to fix the problem, sooth your pain, and get you back to enjoying your meals.

What Is a Root Canal?

With a Root Canal, we remove the pulp tissue (the nerves) from a decayed tooth and replace it with filling. When a tooth becomes infected due to bacteria or decay, the nerves start to become damaged and stop working. Another cause for a root canal is a broken or fractured tooth. Once the canal is done and the tooth is sealed with filling, we place a dental crown over the top in order to provide a strong, durable bite with a natural white appearance.

Think you might need a root canal? Don’t wait. Come on in for a consultation, and we’ll give you everything you need to make the right decision for your dental care.

How long does a root canal take?

Depending on how long the cavities have been infecting the tooth, root canals can take one or two visits, with each visit taking one-to-two hours.

Does a root canal hurt?

It’ll hurt more NOT to treat the infected tooth, so come on in and get that taken care of.

How much does a root canal cost?

A dental plan can cover up to 80% of the cost of a root canal, making a pain-free mouth very affordable.

How do you know if you need a root canal?

Come in for a consultation if you’re experiencing pain, sensitivity, or tender gums that may show swelling.
