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?
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 Nancy F
I am absolutely amazed that I have had no pain in this process! The whole procedure went well even though the crown came off unexpectedly. I anticipated the worse case since I have never had a root canal and was pleasantly surprised that it was not as bad as I thought it would be. 🙂 No pain after the procedure either or the day after so far!
