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.

Endodontic Presentation

To provide you with a better understanding of endodontic procedures, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to root canal therapy 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.

Patient Review by Adriane B

The front office staff was friendly, Jenra was an absolute delight, and Dr. Sulliban was the best. They constantly checked on me to make sure I was doing ok. Jenra even gave me her hand to hold when I was getting anesthetic. Unfortunately this isn’t my first root canal, and I’m usually tense the entire time, but I did not experience that in this relaxing environment. Will definitely be returning if I need additional procedures.

Patient Review by Ed M

After having an evaluation performed and the root canal done immediately after, I have had zero pain nor complications. The doctor explains everything as the procedure is being performed. I even received a follow-up call to make sure all was well.

Patient Review by Narasi S

I was referred here by my primary dentist for root canal work. I have always dreaded getting root canal work. However, Dr. Petterson, who performed my root canal, did the procedure with minimum pain and very efficiently. The dental technician who attended the procedure was also very effective. I enjoyed the conversation with Dr. Petterson before and after the procedure. The consultancy visit was also quick and he explained what needed to be done and why. I hope I don't have to get more root canal work, but if I have to get additional work, I would come here readily. I highly recommend this place.
