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.

Very friendly, efficient dentist and office staff. I also like the hi-tech equipment they use in there. Dr. Pettersen is very friendly, proficient also is the lady assistant. They work together so well and smoothly in taking care of my tooth that I felt so comfortable during the whole supposedly dreadful process of the root canal. This dentist office is surely a well run, best dentist office that I've ever seen. Thanks for a great job done with my root canal.

Fabulous experience. This is the first experience with seeing an Endodontist and from the minute I walked in the office until I left, I was very impressed. Staff very welcoming, office is beautiful and clean (I actually made a point to look at cleanliness). I highly recommend Dr. Silberman and his staff.

The Best! The complete office staff is extremely professional and above all...informative, helpful and cheerful. I feel relaxed coming in the door and leaving. What more could you want from a root canal. Dr. Silberman is so conscientious. I would never go anywhere else.
