What is a root canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure used to treat a tooth that has become infected or inflamed in the pulp, which is the soft tissue inside the tooth. It’s a safe and effective procedure for saving your tooth from extraction.
During a root canal procedure, our dental team will remove the infected or inflamed pulp, clean and disinfect the inside of the tooth, and then seal it to prevent further infection. Root canal therapy is a safe, simple, and effective treatment that addresses severe decay and infection and restores your smile.
Signs you may need a root canal
- Severe tooth pain when biting or chewing
- Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Swelling or tenderness around the affected tooth
- Discoloration or darkening of the tooth
- Recurring pimples or bumps on the gums near the affected tooth

What should I expect during a root canal?
Before the root canal procedure, our dental team will thoroughly examine the tooth and take x-rays to determine the extent of the damage and to plan the procedure. We will then numb the area with a local anesthetic to ensure that you do not feel any pain during the procedure. During treatment, we’ll remove the infected or inflamed pulp, clean and disinfect the inside of the tooth, and then seal it to prevent further infection.
What happens after a root canal?
A crown is recommended as the final step of a root canal in order to restore the tooth’s structure, function, and appearance.
Are root canals covered by insurance?
It depends on the dental insurance plan you have. Some PPO dental insurance does cover the cost of your root canal therapy. Our team is happy to review your benefits plan and help you understand the estimated cost.
