Root Canal Treatment

SO...You need a root canal.  RELAX! It will be much easier than you think.  We hope this information will answer some of your questions and put you more at ease.

Root Canal Therapy, or Endodontics, is a special practice of dentistry.  An Endodontist is a dentist with specialty education and training in the field of saving teeth.  Our goal at Root Canal Specialty Services is to save your tooth from extraction and make you as comfortable as possible.  Local anesthetic is used to numb an area of the mouth.  Then with precise and delicate instruments the doctor removes the tissue from within (endo) the roots of your tooth.  A fine, rubbery material called Gutta Percha is then used to fill the canals of your cleaned roots.  A temporary filling is placed and you are ready to return to your family dentist for complete restoration of your tooth.  Root Canal Therapy can usually be completed in less than one hour.  You may need one or two appointments.

The fee for Root Canal Therapy varies with the number and complexity of roots in your tooth.  Teeth in the front of your mouth generally have one root and are less expensive to treat than the teeth in the back of your mouth which may bhave 3, 4,  or 5 roots.  We are happy to provide you with an estimated cost.  

Our primary mission is to deliver the best and most comprehensive dental care available.  An important part of the mission is making the cost of optimal care as easy and manageable for our patients as possible by offering several payment options.

For Patients with dental insurance we are happy to work with your carrier to maximize your benefit and directly bill them for your treatment.

Please contact our office with any questions regarding insurance or payment information.
