Non-Surgical Root Canals
Root canal treatment has come a long way thanks to advancements in treatment techniques and technology. It’s one of the most common dental restorations, but it’s also something people dread. We’re here to tell you; there’s nothing to worry about!
Some patients like you benefit from having non-surgical root canal therapy to help remove the infection in the pulp of your tooth typically caused by trauma, cracks, and deep decay. If you have a tooth that’s infected, you may experience:
- Further injury
- Sensitivity to temperature
- Pain around the tooth and gums
We can safely remove your damaged pulp before thoroughly cleaning and sealing the area. Non-surgical root canals generally require some local anesthesia to eliminate any discomfort and can be completed on one or two visits to our Peotone dental office. There’s a 90% success rate for this type of restoration, and you’ll be able to drive home after your appointment and comfortably return to your normal, daily routine. Cost for non-surgical root canal therapy will vary depending on the severity of your case.
