Root Canal FAQs
How much do root canals cost?
There is no definitive root canal price, as each patient’s dental needs are unique. During your first visit, we’ll create a specific treatment plan and provide you with a full cost breakdown. If paying for treatment concerns you, we offer a variety of financial options to make your care fit into your budget.
Do root canals hurt?
Root canal treatment is intended to alleviate pain caused by a tooth infection or decay. Due to the local anesthetic used, many patients only feel slight pressure during root canal therapy. It’s common to feel a bit of soreness for the few days after root canal treatment, but most patients are able to return to their daily routine the next day. This soreness may be treated with over-the-counter pain relievers.
What happens during a root canal procedure?
The root canal treatment steps are relatively simple. First, our team will numb the area with local anesthesia. Next, we’ll drill a small hole in the tooth to allow us to clean out the infected pulp. Once the infection has been removed, we’ll thoroughly clean out the root canal. To finalize your treatment and prevent future infection, the small hole we created will be sealed off. In some cases where damage is extreme, we may place a dental crown over the weakened tooth.Schedule Your Appointment
