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.
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.
I was there for a consultation. I felt as tho I were a long-time patient and a good friend .Everything was explained to me in detail and in my language, not dental-ese.

The whole procedure was very easy. Office staff was friendly and courteous. Dr. Petterson is very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional as was his assistant Michelle. He talks to you like a regular person explaining things to you. Some doctors talk to you using words and terms that make you feel like you’re in a foreign country and you don’t speak the language. Dr Petterson isn’t like that, he’s a regular guy who’s outgoing and gregarious. I’ve had a root canal before and I can tell you that it was night and day between the two experiences. Thanks Doc, for making it one of the best dental experiences I’ve had.

When you are in tooth pain, the last thing you want to deal with is a run around or waiting forever to be seen to get relief. Ranch Endodontics was hands down the most professional, effecient and helpful office I have ever been to. Dr. Peterson was the nicest doctor and made me feel extremely comfortable. Christine as well as Deborah were extremely helpful from getting me into the office quickly and making sure everything ran smoothly during the process. If I could give 10 stars I would. Amazing office with genuinely caring people.

I have been treating with Dr. Roe for a few years now. Dr. Roe is warm, friendly and always has a smile on her face when she greets me. I have had two root canals in the last two years. Both experiences were as pleasant as a root canal could be. I came in with great nervousness and anxiety. But Dr. Roe helped calm me. She talked to me about my fears, she explained the process, and she helped me relax. On this last visit, I didn't require a root canal (Yippee!!). I appreciate her giving me sound advice. I recommend her highly! Thanks Dr. Roe, you are the best!!! 🙂

This was my first root canal procedure, so I was a little apprehensive about it. I had been experiencing extreme pain. They were able to schedule an appointment with Dr. Roe the next day. Dr. Roe was extremely professional very personable. She answered all my questions and put me at ease. Throughout the procedure she told me what was happening and what to expect. Her calm, friendly manner and her professional expertise made the experience much easier than I had anticipated. Dr. Roe is a great doctor. Everyone I encountered was extremely professional, and also very kind and cheerful. This office runs the way all medical offices should run. If it's possible to be happy about a root canal, then I am! I can't say enough good things about Rancho Endodontics.

Beautiful office! Everyone was nice and quite professional. For a root canal I couldn't ask for a better experience! ;?) TV in ceiling and headphones were a welcome distraction.
