If you’ve been told that you needed a root canal, the cost of the procedure might have caused you to put your treatment off. Unfortunately, putting it off could result in the need to have your tooth pulled instead of preserved. At Richland Dental, we understand. That’s why we work as hard as possible to make sure your root canal treatment is affordable. We don’t want you to go without the care that you need and risk losing your tooth.
What is a Root Canal?
Endodontics, or root canals, treat the inside of a tooth. When your tooth nerve is damaged or infected, we remove it and then fill the hollow chamber to prevent reinfection. You may need a root canal if you have experienced:
- Dying Tooth Nerves
- Large Cavities
- Severe Fractures
In most cases you will first know there is a problem if an abscess or toothache is present. Other times, it may take years for trauma to trigger death of the nerve. An exam and x-ray can give you the fast answers that you need.
Do Root Canals Hurt?
No. Root canals do not have to hurt. Some people find the process uncomfortable if they are not numb enough, or if they have to hold their mouth open for an extended period of time. We are dedicated to helping your root canal be a pain-free experience.
