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 treated, the whole tooth could begin to die. A root canal can save the tooth and allow for proper healing and lead to further strengthening of the tooth.
Dr. Allred works to detect when root canal therapy is needed before the infection spreads 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 Allred Dental, we use CEREC technology to provide patients with same-day dental crowns. These custom restorations are made in-house on the very same-day as the root canal - no temporary crown or followup appointment necessary!
Do I Need A Root Canal?
If you are experiencing the following symptoms, Dr. Allred 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 costs vary depending on the terms of the dental insurance used. To make it easy for you, our San Marcos dental office is in-network with many major dental insurance carriers. We even work with all PPO plans!
