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. These infected areas can cause significant pain, and if left untreated, can cause the whole tooth to begin to die. A root canal can work wonders by saving the tooth, allowing for proper healing, and leading to further strengthening of the tooth.
Art Dentistry Center works to detect when root canal therapy is needed, stopping an infection in its tracks before it has the chance to spread through the bloodstream to the rest of the body.
After the infection has been treated, the tooth is topped off with a luminous, natural-looking dental crown. At Art Dentistry Center, we use the Glidewell™ In-Office Solution system to provide patients with same-day dental crowns. These custom restorations are made in-house on the very same day as the root canal, which means no temporary crown or follow-up appointment is necessary!
Do I Need A Root Canal?
If you are experiencing the following symptoms, Drs. Ayesha and Raman Saluja will use specialized diagnostic tools to determine if root canal therapy is right for you:
- Swollen, tender gums
- Pain and tooth sensitivity
- Gum abscess
- Sharp pain when biting down or chewing
These signs can indicate that decay has reached the pulp of your tooth, resulting in infection or an abscess inside the tooth or at the root.
How Much Does A Root Canal Cost?
Out-of-pocket root canal therapy costs vary depending on the terms of your dental insurance coverage. To make it easier to receive the care you need, we are in-network with many major dental insurance carriers.
If you're uninsured, we work with third-party lenders CareCredit, LendingClub, LendingPoint, Sun Bit, and Proceed Finance to make it easier for our patients to afford root canal therapy.
