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 are experiencing tooth pain or other symptoms mentioned above, call Rancho Endodontics in Murrieta at Rancho Endodontics Phone Number 951-677-7322 to make an appointment.

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.

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.

I was in great pain and my tooth was infected. Dr. Petterson and the entire staff made this experience as good as I good have ever expected. He was concerned about the issue I had as though it were his own. I appreciated his knowledge and reassurrance since this was the first time I had the procedure. Thank you to Rancho Endodontics for their help and for awesome results!

From the moment you walk in the door of Rancho Endodontics you feel welcomed with a beautiful, relaxing and clean customer area. Not only is the customer area welcoming but the entire establishment is clean and friendly. You are then welcomed by the staff at the front desk. Amazingly, you feel as if you've known them your entire life, that's how super friendly they are. Everyone from Debra, Leah and Dr. Adrian Silberman are professional in every aspect and pleasurable to be around. Although, I had the dreaded root canal done this morning, it was handled with extreme professionalism and care. Dr. Silberman is nothing but "AWESOME". Every single step that he does is explained in detail to familiarize you with the procedure being done. As an added bonus, the television on the ceiling with headphones (direct TV) was a wonderful addition to put you at ease. In addition, DO NOT go here in a bad mood, because {I warn you}, that mood will be turned around to a happy one. If you are looking for a great Endodontist this IS the place, and Dr. Silberman IS the Specialist that you will definitely want to see. I guarantee that you will leave there one happy client. This establishment and the folks who work there are "SECOND TO NONE"!!!!! I Love this place so much, that I will be stopping in from time to time just to say hi.
