In modern dentistry, root canals and root canal therapy has become a common and extremely effective procedure for maintaining the health of your smile. Also known as an "Endodontic Treatment", a root canal is the reason why teeth extractions have become the exception to the general rule of dentistry. Root canal therapy effectively removes pain caused by cavities and infections, saving your tooth and protecting the integrity of your smile.
A common misconception is that the root is never removed. In truth, the root is just the living nerve that is removed or deadened. After a root canal procedure, the tooth becomes a non-living tooth. But that tooth remains intact and normal looking. Root canals create the opportunity to save tooth structure, maintain normal chewing ability and ensure the beauty of your smile.
In most cases, based on the experience and expertise of our doctors and our capable staff, a root canal only requires a single office visit with a temporary filling placed in the opening. After the procedure, to restore chewing function and to maintain the shine of your smile, a porcelain crown is paved into place. If the crown needs to be created with cosmetic color matching and correct fitting, a second visit is often needed.
Root canal therapy has a bad reputation for pain, and this antique perception causes many patients to avoid endodontic treatment. With advances in modern dentistry, the simple truth is root canals cause very little discomfort during the procedure or afterwards. At Smile Center Clinics, we are wizards when it comes to pain management, making sure you remain comfortable and positive during and after a root canal procedure.
If you are a patient of Smile Center Clinics, our goal is to work with you to find ways to ensure your dental health. The cost of endodontic treatment varies based on the number of canals or roots that an individual tooth has formed and the number of teeth that need to be treated.
