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.

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.

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.

I was nervous about my appointment because I had never had a root canal before. Everyone was so wonderful which helped to put me at ease. I felt absolutely no pain and the procedure was done in less than an hour. I’m happy to report the pain I was having in my tooth before the root canal has completely resolved, and I’m back to drinking hot beverages without any issues. I highly recommend Rancho Endodontics to anyone looking for a friendly, down-to-earth yet highly professional endodontist and staff!

Not sure why people say a root canal is awful. I had some much fun at this office for my root canal I would go back again and again if needed. I laughed and also had the Dr and the assistants laughing too. Exceptional overall experience and very friendly staff. Keep up the outstanding work Rancho Endodontics!

The staff and Dr. Silberman were amazing! A few days ago I had an appointment for a retreat root canal. I was feeling very anxious, as I was having problems with two of my teeth. Dr. Silberman was calming and helped me feel comfortable right away. He is gentle and informative all throughout the procedure. As I was leaving he even walked me out and gave me recommendations for a good dentist. I highly recommend, especially if you are one who is nervous to have dental work.
