- WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON ENDODONTIC SYMPTOMS?
Patients may need endodontic treatment, including root canals, if they experience any of
the following symptoms:
* Prolonged dental sensitivity to heat or cold.
* Tenderness of teeth to touch and chewing; or
* Facial or oral Swelling.
- ARE ROOT CANAL TREATMENTS PAINFUL?
For patients; root canal therapy is one of the most feared procedures in all dentistry; dental professionals assert that modern root canal treatment is relatively painless because the pain can be controlled. Lidocaine is a commonly used local anesthetic. Pain control medication may be used either before or after treatment. Be sure to inquire about our use of Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen sedation to make your visit more relaxing.
- WHAT HAPPENS AFTER ENDONDONTIC THERAPY?
We'll give you after-care instructions to ensure a swift
recovery. We'll also send a record of your treatment, along
with the digital radiograph, to your dentist. The unrestored
tooth is susceptible to fracture, so you'll need to schedule a
visit with your dentist as soon as he or she can see you for
- WILL THE TOOTH NEED SPECIAL CARE AFTER TREATMENT?
Discomfort is expected in the tooth and surrounding area for
the next few days as your body undergoes the natural healing
process. This tenderness is usually is alleviated by over the
counter medication. Patients should not chew or bite on the
treated tooth until it is restored by his or her dentist. Please
don't hesitate to contact the office if any problem arises.
- ARE THERE ALTERNATIVES TO ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?
Once the dental pulp is diseased, the only alternative to
endodontic therapy is extraction. Replacing the tooth with
a bridge, implant or a partial denture could be more costly
than the endodontic therapy and a crown.
- HOW MUCH WILL MY PROCEDURE COST?
Fees can vary depending on several factors, including the
severity of the damage or which tooth is affected. In general,
endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth
removal and replacement.
