Root Canal Treatment FAQ

How Do You Get a Root Canal Infection?

There are a variety of different situations that could cause a root canal infection. You could have serious decay that goes deep into your tooth. It may be a result of having multiple procedures done on that one tooth. It could also be because of a crack, chip, or other dental injury. When you visit Silver Sage Family Dentistry, we’ll determine the specific culprit behind your root canal infection in order to develop a personalized treatment plan.

What Are Signs I Need Root Canal Treatment?

While some people don’t experience any symptoms, there are a few common signs to look out for. If you have a painful toothache, experience sensitivity to hot or cold, notice dark discoloration on a tooth, or have swelling or tenderness in your gums, we recommend you set up an appointment at our dental office.

What Is the Difference Between Root Canal Therapy and Endodontic Therapy?

Root canal therapy and endodontic therapy are often used interchangeably. The word “endodontic” is made up from “endo” meaning inside and “odont” meaning tooth. An endodontist is a dental professional who specializes in treating the inside, or dental pulp, within teeth.

How Does Root Canal Surgery Work?

Root canal surgery is essentially a process where we clean out the inflamed and infected pulp from within a tooth. After we’ve removed all of that material, we’ll disinfect and seal the root canal. In the final step, we’ll place some sort of restoration, like a dental crown or filling, on top of the tooth for further support.

What is the Cost of a Root Canal?

The cost of a root canal varies depending on which tooth the procedure is being performed on and whether your insurance (if you’re using any) covers the treatment. After you’ve had a consultation at our office, we’d be happy to give you a more accurate estimate.

Great dentist. The office is very clean and the staff are very knowledgeable and nice. I have been to some pretty bad dentists and I'm happy to say that this office is not one of them.

I have been very pleased with the dental office. The dentist there spotted a problem in a tooth that I have complained about for years that no other dentist ever was able to see. The office is friendly and clean and there are TVs mounted above you so you can watch shows while they work on your teeth. Great place!
