Teeth decay, break, and crack. When this happens, a root canal might be the best course of action. Root canal therapy salvages the natural tooth rather than replacing it with a dental implant. The tooth will appear the same way it did before the procedure and may last forever without another treatment.
A root canal involves gently removing the nerve tissue of a tooth and sealing the canals with a special rubberlike material. After root canal therapy the tooth will not be able to feel temperature or pain but will maintain normal biting power and sensation.
In the past root canals have been quite painful but with new advances is no more uncomfortable than a regular filling.
You may require a dental crown so that the tooth does not fracture following the treatment. A tooth that has undergone the therapy may become more brittle and overtime may be susceptible to cracking.
Most of our treatments are covered by a majority of insurance companies. For a more detailed explanation of your coverage please call your service provider.
