If your tooth is decayed or severely damaged, we can perform root canal therapy to save it and alleviate pain. Root canals can seem daunting, but there’s no need to worry! They’re common procedures that are essential for preserving your natural teeth and restoring your oral health.
Let’s walk through the process and explain the benefits to ensure you feel relaxed and at ease throughout your journey.
What to Expect During a Root Canal
Underneath your tooth’s outer enamel and dentin layers lies a soft tissue called pulp. A root canal becomes necessary when this area becomes infected or inflamed from deep decay, cracks, or trauma. We’ll carefully remove the damaged pulp from inside your tooth during a root canal treatment.
After thoroughly cleaning the inside of the canal, we’ll top it off with a dental crown to prevent future infections and return full functionality to your smile. We’ll also provide instructions for caring for your treated tooth to ensure a smooth recovery and schedule follow-ups to monitor your progress.
Benefits of Treatment
Though root canals may have a daunting reputation, they offer invaluable benefits beyond saving your natural tooth. These advantages include:
- Pain relief
- Tooth preservation
- Restored functionality
- Natural appearance
The Cost of Root Canal Therapy
A healthy smile is important, and we believe exceptional dental care should be accessible to all. For this reason, we work with various insurance providers and offer flexible payment options to make root canals affordable for our valued patients. We will always discuss the costs and available payment plans during your consultation so that you can make an informed decision about your dental health.
