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.
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.

I was referred by the VA. When I go see The head of dental in two weeks I am going to tell her how pleased I were with you guys. The doctor explained everything and put me at ease, and his assistant was also very professional. I am going to definitely saying your praises at the VA dental clinic

I was a much better e experience than I can possibly imagine. I hope I don’t have another root canal but if I do I’m not worried about getting the procedure seemed better than getting a cavity filled.

The root canal which is a very difficult procedure was handled in a professional and friendly manner. I felt the staff really cared about my pain level and made me as comfortable as possible. I left with the impression that they cared about me as a person and I would not hesitate to recommend the doctor.
