Inside your tooth is a chamber of soft pulp tissue made of blood vessels and nerves. When deep tooth decay reaches this area of the tooth, you may experience severe pain and gum swelling. Since this pulp tissue can’t repair itself, dental root canal therapy is necessary to remove the infected pulp. This procedure, sometimes referred to as endodontic treatment, soothes pain and restores your tooth’s function.
This treatment is necessary when dental pulp tissue is infected or severely damaged. These are a few signs your tooth needs treatment:
An endodontist or a general dentist can perform the procedure. Typically, endodontists are consulted for teeth that need additional root canals or for complex cases. If you require a root canal dentist, call our office today.
Knowing what to expect during the procedure is important. The procedure usually takes one to two hours. Here’s what you can expect:
Several factors affect the root canal cost, including how severely your tooth is damaged. Dental insurance may cover some of the costs involved in the procedure. We’ll estimate the cost for you once our dentist examines you. Contact our office for an appointment today.
Molar root canals are most common, but this procedure is suitable for most teeth. There are a few alternatives to a complete root canal procedure, including apicoectomy. During an apicoectomy, the end of the root is removed.
There’s no need to worry that treatment is painful. We use local anesthesia to keep our patients free from pain throughout the treatment. Don’t ignore signs that your tooth needs endodontic treatment. Delaying therapy puts your tooth and your health at risk. Call us as soon as you experience any of the warning signs. We’ll connect you with one of our skilled providers for a root canal in Brooksville.
