Root Canals Are More Common Than You Think
How Much Does a Root Canal Cost?
Since each patient's needs are different, the cost of root canal treatment varies from person to person. During your consultation, Dr. Sternberg can provide an estimated cost of the dental procedure. He can also answer any questions you may have about root canals and what to expect.
Reasons for Root Canal Treatment
At the center of every tooth is a collection of soft and neural tissue known as dental pulp. Though normally protected by the tooth, dental pulp can become inflamed if fractures in the enamel or oral trauma allow bacteria the opportunity to get inside. A root canal treatment involves the removal of infected pulp within a tooth. These are a few key reasons why root canal treatment is performed.
Alleviate Symptoms of InfectionCommon symptoms of root canal infection include toothaches, swollen and tender gums, severe bad breath, and discoloration. Dr. Sternberg can remove the inflamed pulp affecting your teeth and get these symptoms under control.
Prevent the Spread of InflammationA root canal infection can cause all kinds of health problems if left untreated. A dental abscess may form, or the inflammation can spread to other parts of the mouth, face, and neck. It's important to seek treatment as soon as possible.
Avoid an ExtractionRoot canal treatment prevents the removal of the infected tooth. This allows you to avoid the need for bridgework or a false tooth supported by an implant. It is better for a patient to maintain as much of their natural tooth structure when possible.
