Root Canals

Root canals are needed when the pulp of the tooth becomes infected or dies. First, the doctor will numb the area to prevent discomfort. The doctor will make an opening through the top of the tooth down into the pulp chamber.  A dental file will be used to carefully clean the infected area and shape the canals to receive the filling material. The doctor will fill the tooth and close it with a temporary restoration. If the tooth is severely broken the doctor will have to build up with a post and core and finally cement a crown.

The prices below do not cover the final restoration. The price will differ depending on which tooth needs the root canal.
