Your tooth contains a chamber of soft pulp made up of blood vessels and nerves. When tooth decay reaches this chamber, infection and pain are the result. Root canals, or endodontic treatments, remove the infected pulp and eliminate associated pain.
You’ll need treatment to save your tooth if the pulp tissue becomes severely damaged or infected. If you experience any of the following symptoms, call our office right away for a root canal in Winter Haven:
Root canal surgery can be performed by a general dentist or an endodontist. Endodontists are generally consulted for teeth that need re-treatment or in the event of a complex situation. If you need a root canal dentist, contact us right away. We would be happy to connect you with one of our knowledgeable providers.
An hour or two is all it takes to complete a simple root canal procedure, and your dentist will make sure you are comfortable while treatment is underway. Here’s what you can expect during treatment:
Your dental insurance may partially cover your root canal cost, or a dental savings plan may provide a discount. However, there are other issues affecting total treatment costs, including:
In general, root canals are extremely effective treatments for most teeth. Occasionally, the tooth’s root canals are not accessible or other issues may require a variation to the standard procedure. In cases where the tooth has previously undergone an unsuccessful dental root canal, apicoectomy treatment is used to remove the root tip to save the tooth.
Our skilled dentists are dedicated to performing a variety of treatments, including root canals. They work to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure, so there’s nothing to fear. If you are experiencing severe tooth or gum pain, give us a call. We’ll connect you with one of our dentists who will be able to help you get back on the road to good oral health.
