What Is Root Canal Therapy?
Our dentists design root canal treatments to remove infected areas of the soft, inner section of the tooth, also known as the pulp. When these areas of the mouth become infected, they can cause significant pain, and if left untreated, the whole tooth could be lost. A root canal can save the tooth and allow for proper healing and lead to further strengthening of the tooth.
Our skilled doctors work to detect when root canal therapy is needed before the infection spreads through the bloodstream to the rest of the body.
Do I Need A Root Canal?
Patients who require root canals may or may not experience the painful symptoms that are often associated with the treatment, which is why your twice-yearly dental check-ups are so important. That said, if you are experiencing one or more of the following, you may need a root canal:
- Swollen, tender gums
- Pain and tooth sensitivity
- Gum abscess
- Sharp pain when biting down or chewing
How Much Does A Root Canal Cost?
Your total out-of-pocket root canal cost will likely vary, depending on your dental insurance coverage. At Harrison Family Dentists, we never want the total cost of your root canal to keep you from your smile goals! To make it easier, our office accepts a wide selection of dental insurance plans, in addition to no-interest and low-interest monthly payment plans through CareCredit®. These payment plans can even be used in conjunction with your insurance!
