What is

A root canal procedure with an expert endodontist is needed to save a tooth damaged by severe decay or trauma. Due to the risk of infection, it is important to treat these problems as soon as they arise, which is why you should not wait to see a dentist, as it will only make the situation worse.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

Are you suffering from pain associated with a toothache or an inflammation of the gum area? Root canal treatment may be in order. The choosiest patients choose Embassy Dental for their dentist. With a root canal (endodontics), you can maintain your smile while saving your natural tooth.

What is the Root Canal Procedure?

The procedure begins with numbing the area and drilling down into the tooth, where any damaged or infected regions such as pulp, dentin, nerves, and blood vessels are all removed. At Embassy Dental, the excision is then so skillfully managed – as only the surest dentist can do – so that the tooth still receives nourishment from the surrounding tissue in the mouth. The tooth is fully cleaned and then sealed with a rubber-like material where it is then generally topped with a crown for added protection.

Preparing for Root Canal Treatment

There is no specific preparation that’s necessary to prepare for your endodontics/root canal treatment and you can count on us for a smooth and pain-free procedure.

Recovery from Root Canal Treatment

Following your root canal, you may notice total and immediate cessation of any toothache pain. The treated area around your tooth (or teeth) may still be somewhat tender, but you can eat as normal and enjoy all the foods you love without worrying about the pain you had before the treatment.

How Much Does Root Canal Treatment Cost?

Root canal or endodontics treatment may be covered by your dental insurance. Please contact your provider for more information, but even if you do not have dental insurance, Embassy Dental offers convenient financing options through CareCredit® and OrthoBanc®.

Is Endodontics (Root Canals) Right for Me?

If you are suffering from tooth pain and it’s been determined that the decay is too far widespread for a filling to suffice, then a root canal may be the best solution for you. We can determine if a root canal is the ideal course of action, so contact our office today to schedule a consultation to determine your candidacy.
