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.

All staff are welcoming and friendly and Dr. Pettersen makes the whole process upbeat and easy! It's obvious there is great morale and everyone loves what they do, which makes it so much more comfortable for us to have dental work done that, at other practices, we might dread!

Very impressed how beautifully the waiting room and entire office suite is decorated. It’s warm and inviting. Although I don’t feel 100% yet, I am confident in the work Dr. Roe has done and know I will be better than new in no time! I’m so pleased with the entire experience.

On top of the fact that Dr Silberman was so lovely, Rene, was nice and knowledgeable in her job, the whole procedure, they continually asked me if I was doing alright, and giving me a time frame on how much longer. I, as a patient appreciate that. As I was leaving and checking out, Heather, made sure I was alright, and just showed me that the entire office just wants their patients happy and comfortable with the procedure! Thank you all, and I highly recommend Rancho Endodontics!

I had two root canals many years ago by Dr. Pettersen and was happy to hear he's still treating patients. He was kind, gentle, patient, answered all my questions, and had a warm sense of humor back then and still does now! He and his staff make the whole experience as comfortable as possible. I highly recommend Dr. Pettersen and staff!

My experience at Rancho Endodontics was a pleasant one, from start to finish. Dr. Pettersen was very easy to talk with. He explained my examination to me very clearly, and was very informative about my options. Dr. Pettersen and his staff treated me with courtesy and professionalism. I would highly recommend Rancho Endodontics to my family and friends. It was determined that I did not need a Root Canal after all, and Dr. Pettersen got me pointed in the right direction, to a specialist who is better suited for my specific dental needs. When the time comes for a Root Canal procedure, I will be going straight to Rancho Endodontics.
