What is a root canal?

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.

At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures.

Symptoms of the infection can be identified as:

  • visible injury,
  • swelling of the tooth
  • sensitivity to temperature
  • or pain in the tooth and gums

If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp.

What is the treatment?

This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required.

Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment.

We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.

What happens after treatment?

animated diagram of tooth before, during, and after root canal treatment When your root canal therapy has been completed, a record of your treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. You should contact their office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completion at our office.

Your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.

How much will it cost?

The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as difficulty, the severity of damage to the affected tooth, and which tooth is affected.

In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.

Patient Review by Dinah F

As a resident of Michigan vacationing in Florida. I was apprehensive scheduling a root canal with a new dentist. Fortunately, the entire process proved to be far easier than I imagined. The staff and Dr. Oyola were friendly, knowledgeable, and understanding. And what a beautiful new office they have with the latest technology. 5 STARS.

Patient Review by Ken S

I was delighted with my original phone contact with the staff. I found them to be courteous, knowledgeable, and concerned. I was scheduled for the next morning at 8:00, because of my condition. The Doctor is a superior talent and throughout my root canal therapy, I wasn't disappointed by her attention to detail and the methods employed. I would not hesitate to recommend this practice to anyone whom I know. Overall, I would rate my experience with the staff and the Doctor as a 10 on a scale of 5.

Patient Review by Katie W

I am so impressed by this practice and doctor. The office was beautiful and clean (it even smelled lovely). The procedure took a couple of hours total, but I was made comfortable through all of it -- in fact, I fell asleep during the root canal!

Patient Review by Jonathan P

I was pleased with my experience at Sarasota Endodontics. I had an infected tooth, that needed a root canal, and the care I received was excellent. A root Canal is not normally a pleasant experience, but this was, in every way possible, a good experience. I will return if or when i need additional services, and want to thank all the staff, and Dr. Oyola for excellent care. Thank you

Patient Review by Pamela R

Everyone was exceptionally pleasant and personable. I felt like I was receiving the very best care from everyone, but especially Dr. Oyola. I don't care for root canals and have never liked a rubber dam, but I almost fell asleep during this procedure because I was so comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Oyola!
