Non-Surgical Root Canal

With well over 14 million root canals performed every year, it is one of the most common dental procedures. It is a simple treatment that can save your natural teeth while preventing the need for dental implants or bridges.

What is a root canal?

At the center of your tooth is pulp, which is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Pulp can become infected by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Infected tooth symptoms include swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.

Root Canal Treatment

If you experience the above symptoms, your dentist will likely recommend a non-surgical treatment to eliminate the infected pulp. During the treatment the injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. The procedure usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the extent of the infection. 90% of cases realize success with this type of treatment. In the case that your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of your consultation. We’ll also inform you when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. Local anesthesia is used to eliminate discomfort or we will provide nitrous oxide analgesia if it is called for. After the treatment, you will be able to drive home and return to your normal routine.

After Treatment

Your doctor will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth after your treatment is complete. Please note that it is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. In the case a problem does occur, please contact us immediately. Continue to practice good dental hygiene to prevent further decay.

Cost

The cost associated with this particular procedure varies depending on factors such as how badly the tooth is damaged and which tooth is affected. Endodontic treatment, however, is much less expensive than a tooth removal with artificial tooth replacement.

Dr. Sara, the assistants, and the front desk ladies are so awesome to work with. They make it easy to set up appointments. They make you feel very welcome and comfortable from the second you walk in. I am very satisfied with how current Dr. Sara is on new practices. I struggled getting answers for my dental issues and when I met Dr. Sara she had ideas and answers how to correct my dental issues with modern practices. I couldn't be happier coming here!

The entire staff is so friendly and put me at ease. I have always been treated patiently and respectfully when I feel anxious or when I am having a dental procedure done. They are very knowledgeable of current treatments and skillfully and professionally execute them. When I had dental pain, but was not in the area, Dr. Sara called me back immediately to address my concerns. I am VERY pleased to call Kewaskum Family Dentistry my dental team!
