Is your tooth sensitivity and pain becoming unbearable and disrupting your life? A root canal treatment may be necessary to restore your oral health and bring you relief from intense pain.

Our top-quality root canal procedure is performed with only the gentlest techniques and latest technology so you can be sure you get the care you need, while still being completely comfortable throughout your visit.

What Is a Root Canal?

A root canal procedure is when decayed or infected tissue is carefully and gently eliminated from the interior of your tooth. A root canal is a common dental procedure, and is the best way to save your tooth from extraction due to decay or damage. Our practice provides efficient, effective, and gentle root canal treatment, as well as several sedation options. Our caring staff is devoted to not only preserving your oral health, but also making sure you are comfortable throughout the entire process.

When Is a Root Canal Necessary?

A root canal is needed when tooth pulp – the soft middle part of your tooth – is injured, infected, or inflamed. Even though the pulp of a tooth may be damaged or dead, the crown often remains intact and can be saved.

By performing a root canal, a dentist preserves your tooth while removing the damaged pulp. The most common causes of pulp damage are:

  • Tooth chips and cracks
  • Deep decay caused by untreated cavities
  • Injury or trauma to the mouth
  • Having several dental procedures performed on the same tooth

What Are Signs You Need a Root Canal?

Typically, you may need a root canal if your teeth are particularly sensitive to hot and cold. If you notice any of the following symptoms, it may mean you may need a root canal:

  • Gums that are swollen or tender
  • The appearance of pimples on your gums
  • Lingering hot and cold sensitivity, sometimes long after the sensation is gone
  • Darkening gums

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

  • Immediately alleviates intense pain and sensitivity in your tooth
  • Prevents an invasive future tooth extraction
  • Halts the spread of the infection to adjacent teeth
  • Gets rid of any infection and swelling present

What Is Involved in A Root Canal Procedure?

You will first come to our friendly practice for a consultation that will include an expert exam and necessary x-rays. Our highly knowledgeable and experienced Dr. Omid Barkhordar will also personally address any questions or concerns you may have and will help design an effective treatment that is suited to your needs.

The procedure will involve Dr. Barkhordar proficiently eliminating any bacteria, decay, and infected soft tissue present. He will next protect the treatment site from debris and bacteria with our innovative compound and paste.

We will finish the procedure by treating the tooth with a color-matched filling on top of the treatment area. To ensure your tooth is fully functional, we may also choose to place a top-quality dental crown over the tooth to add strength.

What Can I Expect When Recovering from A Root Canal?

A numbing agent is used during a root canal and patients will experience numbness for two to four hours after the procedure is performed.

Most patients do not need time off and return to work or school after their root canal is complete. They are typically instructed to avoid food until the numbness has subsided entirely.

How Much Does a Root Canal Cost?

The cost is affected by the complexity of the problem and the type of tooth damage.

Most insurance companies, however, do cover some of the cost. Care Dental Center works with every patient, offering various payment and financing options to ensure treatment is possible.
