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, tooth 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.

Endodontic Presentation

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.

As mentioned above I must say this is a very professional and well maintained dental office. If you or any family member is looking for a place to have work done. I would stop your search and enjoy what I can attest to myself. I was referred here by my primary dentist for a root canal and can honestly say, I had the best experience I have had with any other dentist in my time. I am 40yrs old and wish I had been to this place sooner. The dentist himself is a very well spoken individual and you can hear it in his voice. I can tell he for one, knows his job very well. Yet also cares enough to take the time to thoughly explain your options prior to any work being done. I could not of asked for anything more in the work being performed on my tooth. The gal he has as an assistant during the work was just as attentive and seemed to know when it was time to get in gear, it was time. I say that because the attitude in the room was relaxing yet come time to do the job. It was time to do the job and the team was nothing but spot on. You have a TV to watch if desired to even add a more pleasant and relaxing experience. If the kindness and expIinations of work to be performed were not enough. I have found myself a great dentist and I will recommend them to anyone who may be in need of any services they can render. Thank you for the work Guys!

Dr. Pettersen and his assistant were amazing! I was in terrible pain and in need of a root canal. They were so understanding, friendly and made me feel comfortable in every way before starting the procedure. They gave me water, allowed me time to contact my husband and gave me headphones to watch TV on the ceiling while he worked on me. He saw that I was having a difficult time swallowing due to post nasal drip and removed the device that keeps your mouth open, making it much more comfortable for me. Dr. Pettersen is an expert in his field, saving the crown that was already on my tooth and it was done in no time!! Thank you for relieving my pain and doing such a great job!

I was extremely nervous, admittedly the worse patient. Both of them explained what was happening at each step along the way, put me at ease with their friendliness, competence, patience and professionalism. I hope I never need another root canal, but if I do, I am going back to Dr. Roe.

Very professional from check-in desk, X-rays, dental assistant and the dentist. Warm blanket, tv overhead, headset...all comforting and with the tv/headset, you could take your mind off what the dentist was doing....I liked that distraction. Overall painless and very professional.

All of my questions were answered specifically and never rushed by Dr and staff, both on the phone & in person. No work was started until they were certain I understood what was going to happen and was put at ease. Strange to say a root canal is enjoyable, but being in such confident, professional hands, I will never be under stress if I have to do a root canal again. Highly recommend to anyone.
