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 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 definitely recommend this office. Everyone is professional, kind and I felt very confident in the abilities of the doctor who performed my root canal. I have had tooth pain for about five months, and after my visit I am finally pain free!!!

Patient Review by Noreen M

The quality of care I received was beyond amazing. I had been in pain from a new cap put on for about 7 days. I couldn't get out from under the pain myself and Deborah at the front desk assessed me over the phone and was able to get me in within an hour. I was fortunate to be in the care of Dr. Silberman. He is compassionate, thorough, and an incredible doctor. He and his assistant made sure I was in no pain before they started the work on my root canal. I did not feel a thing and it was over and done with in no time Dr. Silberman explained everything in detail and told me what to expect before, during and after the procedure. I was already feeling 100% better before I even got out of the chair. I woke up the next day with absolutely no pain. I will be forever grateful. If I come across anyone that is in pain and is putting off dental work due to anxiety or fear of pain, I would drive them to this facility myself. No regrets. Hands down an amazing experience.
