Root Canal Murrieta & Temecula
What is a root canal?
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.
If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. In addition, we will provide nitrous oxide analgesia, if indicated. You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.
To provide you with a better understanding of endodontic therapy, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to root canals are discussed.
What happens after Root Canal treatment?
When your root canal therapy has been completed, a record of your treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. You should contact their office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completion at our office. Your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.
How much will a Root Canal cost?
The cost associated with the Root Canal procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.
My experience at Rancho Endodontics was excellent. I felt very well recieved and tended to by a friendly and accomodating staff. At Rancho Endodontics your comfort is their priority and it really shows.

Excellent service from start to finish very professional. Dr. and assistant saw I was very anxious about being there they walk me step-by-step through the whole process. My husband just getting off his shift with the fire department drove me and they managed to find a room where he could take a nap while I was having a procedure done :)) This office is a keeper

i had recently moved into this area and had no referral to see any endodontists so. i surfed and decided to rely on the reviews and came to see dr.silberman without 100% confidence. however, the reviews on the web were so true about dr. silberman and his practice. his is one of the best dr. i ever saw ( i am 64 years old so i have seen few doctors.) if you ever need endodontic services, you need to look no further. dr. silberman will more than meet your expectations.

Dr. Silberman's compassion and love for his work is evident in every visit. He explains everything so it's easy to understand and it's obvious he is excited about the excellent outcomes he achieves. My son suffered a traumatic injury dislodging three front teeth and Dr. Silberman saved his teeth which for a 15 year old was huge. Big thanks to you Dr. Silberman! S Windham for Brenden C.

I had a root canal done by Dr. Roe yesterday. I had no pain last night or today. I was really expecting to be eating soft foods for at least a few days, but I literally have no pain. Dr. Roe is fantastic and her assistant was so skilled and comforting.

I went for a root canal evaluation. The doctor was very honest and said I really didn't need the procedure and advised me on what to look for if I would.
