Common questions about comprehensive root canals

What is a root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is necessary when decay spreads to the nerve of your tooth and causes infection. Left untreated, you’ll eventually lose the tooth. A root canal procedure involves removing the inflamed or infected nerve and then carefully cleaning and sealing the canal. The final step of your root canal is a natural-looking filling or porcelain crown to restore function and appearance.

    Does a root canal hurt?

    Getting a root canal is relatively painless. Your mouth will be numb throughout the procedure and we’ll provide after-care instructions to help you recover easily. You’ll be back to eating and smiling normally in no time!

    How long does a root canal take?

    Root canal treatments take anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on the condition of your tooth. It’s also possible your treatment will be divided into 2 appointments.

      How expensive is a root canal?

      Many dental insurance providers cover up to 50% of the cost of a root canal. We’ll provide an estimated cost before your procedure. Contact us to learn more.
