Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

Virtually Pain-Free Procedure
Root canal treatment is virtually painless and often leaves you with less discomfort during recovery than if you have your natural tooth extracted.

Thanks to modern techniques and effective anesthesia, patients who experience root canals are six times more likely to describe it as painless than patients who have a tooth extracted.

Efficient & Cost-Effective
Tooth extraction can take longer than root canal treatment due to follow-up appointments required for a denture, bridge or implant; plus the cost may be higher. Most dental insurance plans cover endodontic treatment.

Visually Appealing Result
Crowns not only function like natural teeth; they look great, too.

Improve your smile and laugh out loud again with root canal treatment.

What Is a Root Canal?

Root canal therapy is a common and effective dental procedure, which helps patients to avoid future dental implants or bridges, if performed in a time.

During a root canal treatment, dentist removes the bacteria dwelling in root canal by taking the infected pulp and removing it completely, subsequently filling and sealing it with gutta-perch, rubber-like material.

The pulp is the area of blood vessels, which can get easily infected or inflamed because of tooth trauma, cracks, or decay. The symptoms of root canal infection are swelling of tooth surrounding areas, tooth or temperature sensitivity.

After a root canal treatment, patient begins tooth restoration process. During restoration process, dentist will be reviewing the tooth and finding the best solution to protect it, such as crown or veneers.
