Root Canal Therapy

What is a root canal?

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.

At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.

If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. In addition, we will provide nitrous oxide analgesia if indicated. You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.

Endodontic Presentation

To provide you with a better understanding of endodontic therapy, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to root canals are discussed.

Endodontic Presentation

tooth after endodontic treatmentWhat happens after treatment?

When your root canal therapy has been completed, a record of your treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. You should contact their office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completion at our office. Your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.

How much will it cost?

The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.

I had extreme tooth pain overnight and walked in prior to the office being open. I would have completely understood if they couldn’t have got me in for an appointment, but the staff and Dr. Snow were absolutely wonderful. They brought me an ice pack and squeezed me in for an appointment. I received compassion throughout the appointment and they were extremely professional. I would definitely recommend this office.

I had 2 root canals done by Dr. Campbell in a month period. As far as the procedures, it was done very professionally. I'm satisfied so far however; as I have done root canals in the past, it does take some time to give a better evaluation. I had same assistant, Jasmin, for both visits. She was excellent! She made me feel comfortable specially while I waited for the anesthesia to kick in!

This was such a good experience versus what I thought it was going to be. Dr. Snow is fantastic. Jazmin is the best. It is almost 24 hours after the procedure and I've not had any pain or discomfort and I feel super.

I like others do not like to spend time at the dentist, especially for the dreaded root canals. I was very much put at ease with Dr. Snow, got just enough and he took really great care of me. After the novacain wore off I had very little if any pain and the roots were really deep. I would highly recommend him for future treatments or problems with my teeth. He is quick, patient and thorough.

Dr. Snow, Jazmin and Macy were fantastic. Macy found the right day and time that fit my schedule for my appointment and did all the insurance work for me. Jazmin put me at ease with the over all view of what to expect - she explained before, during and after so there were no moments of what was going to happen next. Dr. Snow was pleasant and explained what to expect, feel and hear but he was focused on the task at hand and I appreciate that. For my first root canal - it was a non event and if ever I need anything more, I will most definitely return.
