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.
This was my first visit to Rancho Endo, and it will not be my last. Dr. Roe is an excellent doctor that is very caring and personable. I have had many procedures in my life (including Root Canals) and this was by far one of the most pleasant experiences one could have at the Dentist. So "comfortable" that I actually fell asleep a few times during the procedure, without any sedation!

Everyone was extremely friendly. The appointment went quickly and everything happening was explained. No one wants a root canal but if you need one this is the place to go.

As normal I was nervous about the entire situation. Making the appointment was an ease. Front office staff was pleasant and friendly. The Dr and assistant were absolutely amazing and made the entrie procedure much less then what I made of it myself. I will definitely send family and friends here. Thanks for the great work, friendly staff and putting my pain at ease.

Staff was very professional, this was my first root canal. I had heard horror stories but my experience was painless. So much so that I was so relaxed that I fell asleep. Thank you to Dr. Adrian and her staff. Highly recommend.

I loved how they explained everything step by step. They were so gentle and caring. I was told root canals were painful, but I did not feel a thing! It was a great experience and I would definitely go back if I ever need another root canal. The next day I had a follow up call to see how I was doing and that just made the experience 10 times better! I had no insurance and paid out of pocket but it was worth every penny. Thank you!

This place was very clean, everyone was super nice, especially the dr. I went in to see if my crown can be put back on or if I needed another root canal because x-rays looked off. They took their own x-rays and examined my tooth and explained the x-rays to me and that I was good to go and why. It was a huge relief to find out I didn't need a root canal after all and I loved his honesty!!!
- Julieann K
Would come back to him anytime I need his expertise. Very gently man and made you feel very secure and non afraid. Thank you Dr. Silberman.
