When Do I Need Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is needed when tooth decay occurs past your 1st layer of teeth, which is the white enamel, and also when it passes through the 2nd layer, called the dentin. Once the decay passes these layers, it reaches what's called the pulp, which is where in the tooth you'll find your connective tissue, blood vessels, and nerves.

Once a tooth decay reaches the pulp of your tooth, it can cause inflammation or infection inside the tooth and even into the gum in some cases. This is when root canal treatment may become necessary. So don't wait to see us if you are feeling pain in your teeth! Most serious dental issues are a result from not getting regular dental checkups, so make an appointment on our site or call us and come down to one of our three local offices.

Root Canal Procedure

Many people want to know what to expect before going into most types of dental procedures, including a root canal infection treatment, also known as endodontic treatment.

We have outlined our root canal therapy procedure below:

  1. Consultation - Assess the amount of tooth decay of your tooth/teeth
  2. Inspect - See whether you are in the pulp inflammation or infection stage
  3. Apply Anesthetic - Gently numb the affected area of your mouth
  4. Create Opening - We make a small opening from the crown of the tooth into the pulp
  5. Remove Pulp - Our endodontist then removes the pulp of the affected teeth
  6. Disinfect Tooth - We flush a special fluid into the canals of your teeth to rinse out any debris and kill bacteria
  7. Seal Root Canals - Our experts then fill up and seal your root canals
  8. Temporary Filling - After the canals are filled, we insert a temporary filling to close up the tooth
  9. Final Appointment - After your procedure, our endodontist will create a filling or crown to permanently close the opening of the root canals.

Root Canal Therapy - Our Endodontists

Endodontics, which means the treatment or study of dental pulp, requires an experienced dentist for the process to be carried out with as little pain as possible and for the healing to be permanent. Fortunately, our dentists at OC Dental Center keep membership at top dental organizations and associations to always keep up with the best and latest dental techniques. 

Root Canal Treatment - High Tech, Highly Specialized Equipment

OC Dental Center houses special 3D imaging and X-ray machines, which can quickly and accurately show us what's going on in your teeth. It's fast and easy, and it shows us where exactly the problem is. Whether you need a root canal for your anterior or front teeth such as your canines, incisors, or lateral incisors, or back teeth like premolars and molars, our dentists will be able to determine what steps need to be taken.

How Much Does A Root Canal Treatment Cost?

The price of the root canal can vary depending on the severity of your situation. Like most dental procedures, it's best to have regular visits to our dentist or OC endodontist so we can catch a problem early. We have very affordable root canal and endodontic procedures and we offer financing if your insurance doesn't cover the treatment or if our quote is outside of your current budget.
