What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal treatment is performed to remove infected areas of the soft, inner section of the tooth, also known as the pulp. When these areas becoming infected, you could experience significant pain and, even worse, encounter a dangerous infection that could spread to other parts of the body.

At Dental Arts of Mountain View, we have all of the latest diagnostic imaging tools to spot an infected pulp before it causes serious damage. Always attend your regular bi-yearly exams and come in for emergency exams, when needed, and your root canal treatments will be simple and successful.

Once our doctors treat the infection, they will seal the tooth using a custom dental crown. We offer CEREC® same-day dental crowns at our Mountain View dental office, a service that allows us to provide the entire procedure in one appointment instead of two!

Signs That You Could Need a Root Canal

Teeth that require root canals usually experience a long list of persistent symptoms. If you are experiencing any of the following, it could mean that decay has reached your tooth’s pulp:

  • Swollen gums
  • Tender, red gums
  • Tooth pain
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Gum abscess
  • Sharp pain when eating

These symptoms should never be ignored and usually warrant an emergency dentist appointment. Call us today if you are suffering from any of these complaints.

Choosing a Root Canal vs. Extraction

There are many reasons for needing a root canal or extraction. If you are suffering from periodontal disease that has badly infected one or more teeth, an extraction best addresses the issue. Furthermore, if a tooth is badly damaged and cannot be restored or you are suffering from pain even after a filling, crown, or root canal, an extraction may be needed and an implant placed as a replacement.

Patients with a deep cavity or issues from a previous filling are candidates for a root canal. The root canal procedure is a much more conservative treatment. It is performed by dentists to clean and restore an infected tooth. Root canals are great options for saving teeth. With adequate homecare, root-canaled teeth can last for decades.

Do I Need a Crown After a Root Canal?

You don’t always need a crown after a root canal. Sometimes it can be sealed with a filling, which is determined by the dentist. If more than half of the tooth is gone, a crown should be placed to restore the tooth’s structural integrity.

How Much Does a Root Canal Cost?

Your total root canal cost may depend on a range of factors, including:

  • Your current oral health and if you require any preliminary procedures
  • The type of dental crown selected
  • If sedation dentistry is selected

At Dental Arts of Mountain View, we are committed to providing gentle root canal treatment at fair and honest prices. After a thorough consultation, our dentists will develop a custom treatment plan tailored to your unique needs, along with a price breakdown.
