Endodontic treatment, or root canal surgery, is the removal of infected or exposed soft pulp tissue. This procedure eases the pain and swelling that is often associated with the infection. It also restores your tooth’s function as the soft, inner tooth pulp tissue cannot repair itself. If you are suffering from infected or injured pulp tissue, call our office immediately to schedule a root canal in New Tampa

The average cost of the procedure varies widely, depending on factors such as whether you’re treated by a general dentist or an endodontist. The type of tooth being treated also affects the price.

A standard root canal procedure is an effective treatment for most teeth. In some cases, a different endodontic treatment like an apicoectomy is required. This treatment involves the removal of the end of the tooth root. This is usually used for teeth that have undergone unsuccessful endodontic procedures in the past.
Some people joke about the pain of a root canal, but we use local anesthesia to keep our patients comfortable during treatment. Don’t jeopardize your tooth or put your health at risk by ignoring tooth pain and other important symptoms. Call us immediately to find relief from your tooth pain.
