We can relieve your pain and save your tooth
There are times when the unexpected happens with the smile. When this occurs, patients may be dealing with problems such as trauma that causes pain or infection within a tooth. In order to bring the tooth to health, patients may need to have a procedure called root canal therapy performed to save the tooth and avoid having it extracted for relief.
Root canal therapy, which some professionals refer to as endodontic therapy, is done to remove the pulp from the tooth and seal it off to avoid extraction and replacement. It is a more desirable than having a dentist remove a tooth and deal with dentures, bridges, or dental implants. Saving a tooth in this way is highly recommended for any patient who is experiencing problems with the nerves, blood supply, or diseased tissues. When done correctly, the tooth is sealed so bacteria cannot enter the tooth, and patients will be able to retain the tooth for many years to come. Avoiding other restorations by using root canal therapy is the treatment of choice for many patients.
Dr. Christopher Lim of Hillside Dental in Las Vegas is often asked by his patients about the cost of root canal therapy. The cost will vary depending on several factors, including the use of sedation, local anesthetics, how many teeth are being treated, and if there are any further complications. Sometimes, patients may need to have a dental crown placed over the tooth to give it more strength and protection. Additionally, patients may choose to have their root canal therapy performed at the same time as another dental procedure, which affects the final cost of treatment.
