What are the signs of an infected tooth?
Your dentist is the best person to diagnose your need for a root canal, but a few signs to keep an eye out for include:
- Constant toothache
- Lingering tooth sensitivity
- Sore and sensitive jawbone
- Chipped or fractured tooth (even small breaks and chips in your teeth can lead to advanced decay and infection)
How long does a root canal take?
A root canal typically takes about 60-90 minutes, and it’s possible your root canal treatment will be divided into two separate appointments. We’ll help you understand what to expect.
How much does it cost to get a root canal?
Dental insurance may cover a portion of your root canal treatment. Before scheduling your treatment, we’ll outline the cost as well. Third Party Payment Options through After Pay and Zip Pay are available to our patients if needed.
Are root canals safe?
Yes. Root canals are proven to stop infection and save teeth. Roughly 25 million root canals are performed every year. There is no scientific evidence supporting the connection between root canal-treated teeth and disease or problems elsewhere in the body.
