How do I know if I need a root canal?

Root canal therapy eliminates bacteria in the root canal to save the natural tooth. When a root canal is performed, the infected or inflamed pulp within the tooth is removed. While a dental visit with Dr. Henderson or Dr. Evans is the only way to confirm if a root canal is necessary, there are a few signs that can prompt you to suspect the need for a root canal. Some signs that you might need a root canal include:

  • Consistent Toothache
  • Tooth Discoloration
  • Sensitivity to Cold or Heat

What happens during root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment can eliminate bacteria from an infected tooth and prevent reinfection. If a root canal to resolve dental or mouth pain has been scheduled, you may be curious about what happens during treatment. Typically, our team will apply a local anesthetic to eliminate feeling in the treatment area. Our team will then gently make a hole in your tooth to remove the infected pulp and thoroughly clean out your tooth. Our team will then seal the tooth shut and place a restoration if necessary.

Are root canals expensive?

The cost of a root canal will vary on which tooth is infected and how complex the treatment is. However, root canal therapy can save the natural tooth before more costly treatments are the only option.
