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.

I had to find a new dentist in 2020. I chose Kewaskum Family Dentistry and Dr. Sara because of word of mouth advertising through my neighbor. Dr. Sara came highly recommended not only for her dentistry skills but also for her treatment with TMD. I had my teeth cleaned and was very impressed with my cleaning. I feel it was thorough as my hygienist counted pockets, which is important to me in knowing the health of my gum tissue. My hygienist educated me on flossing and the angel in which to use my electric toothbrush. Next I had my consultation with Dr. Sara about my TMD. I have struggled with jaw pain, clenching, grinding and damaging my teeth from that resulting in crowns and root canals. The consultation was the most thorough I've experienced in 20 years. I was shown my x-rays and the shifting of my jawbone and in the palpitation I exhibited the pain from constant clenching and grinding. I'm in EXCELLENT care with a powerful treatment plan I'm looking forward to. Everyone at this clinic from the time you walk in the door until you exit has such great energy, professionalism, respect and experience. I would highly recommend this clinic to any age group. Thank you everyone!!!
