Endodontic therapy — or root canal treatment, as it is commonly called — is often associated with pain and discomfort. But before your thoughts run wild, let’s review the main facts:
- Root canal therapy is a dental treatment that removes infected nerves from inside the tooth.
- Root canal therapy is designed to prevent further damage and future root canal infection.
- Root canal therapy quickly relieves the pain that you feel because of the inflammation.
The first thing we do is to remove the infected pulp tissue and clean out the root canal. We then fill it with either color-matched resin or porcelain fillings that seamlessly blend into your natural enamel. It’s that simple.
If you’re worried about pain and discomfort during treatment, we can discuss sedation options with you.
People also worry about root canal treatment costs. We provide various financing options and payment plans to shoulder your costs. Let’s discuss this today.
