Severe decay can cause the soft pulp tissue inside your tooth to become infected or exposed. This condition usually causes severe pain, and it can lead to additional health problems if left unaddressed. Also called endodontic treatment, root canal therapy clears out the affected dental pulp, alleviating pain and restoring dental function.
Your damaged tooth pulp cannot repair itself, so your tooth needs a dental root canal when the pulp is severely infected or damaged. Here are some symptoms you should look for:

This therapy is effective on most teeth, and it’s a common procedure for treating infected or diseased molars. One variation of this standard procedure includes apicoectomy. An apicoectomy is designed to save a tooth that has undergone an unsuccessful prior treatment, and it involves removing the end of the tooth’s root.
Many factors will figure into the total root canal cost, including whether you need pre-treatment. Front teeth generally cost less to treat since they have only one root. Molars tend to be slightly more expensive because they have four roots. Many dental insurance plans partially cover the cost of the procedure, and some dental discount plans offer additional savings. Contact us today so we can schedule you for an evaluation with our skilled providers. Based on your evaluation, we can provide you with an estimate for your treatment.
