What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. A tooth's nerve and pulp can become irritated, inflamed and infected for several reasons. These reasons can include deep decay repeated dental procedures on a tooth, large fillings, a crack, chip in the tooth or trauma to the face.

As your local Phoenix dentist, we understand that root canal procedures have the reputation of being painful. But the procedure itself is no more painful than having a filling placed.

What are the Signs That a Root Canal is Needed?

If you need a root canal, you may notice these signs:

  • Tooth sensitivity that lingers, especially to heat or cold
  • Sharp pain when chewing or biting
  • Pimples on your gums
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Swollen or painful gums
  • Deep decay or darkened gums
  • How Much Does a Root Canal Cost?

    The cost of a root canal varies depending on how complex the problem is, and which tooth is affected. Molars are more difficult to treat therefore; the fee is usually more. Most dental insurance policies provide some coverage for endodontic treatment.

    Generally, endodontic treatment and restoration of the natural tooth are less expensive than the alternative of having the tooth extracted. An extracted tooth must be replaced with an implant or bridge to restore chewing function and prevent adjacent teeth from shifting. These procedures tend to cost more than endodontic treatment and appropriate restoration. As your local Phoenix dentist, we understand financial options are extremely important to our patients which is why we accept most dental insurance plans and also have several flexible payment options available.
