What Are Root Canals?
A root canal procedure is needed to save a tooth damaged by severe decay or trauma. Due to the risk of infection, it is important to treat these problems as soon as they arise. Don’t let anxiety stop you from seeking treatment for a root canal. We offer a variety of sedation dentistry alternatives including laughing gas to help you relax during your root canal procedure.
Benefits of Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy offers a number of substantial benefits. It can eliminate pain, save your natural tooth, and save you money versus multiple fillings, crowns and repeated procedures on the affected tooth.
What Is the Procedure for Root Canals?
First, we will numb the affected area and then drill down into your tooth, where the infected pulp, dentin, nerves, and blood vessels nourishing the tooth are all removed. The tooth still receives nourishment from the surrounding tissue in the mouth. Next, your tooth is fully cleaned and then sealed with a rubber-like material where it is then generally topped with a crown for added protection.
Recovery from Root Canal Treatment
After your root canal treatment, you will notice an immediate cessation of toothache pain. You can continue to eat as normal and enjoy all the foods you love without worrying about pain!
How Much Does Root Canal Treatment Cost?
Root canal treatments may be covered by your dental insurance. Contact your provider for more information, but if you do not have dental insurance, Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics offers financing options through CareCredit® and OrthoBanc®. The CareCredit® payment system allows you to make flexible monthly payments toward your balance.
