Root Canal Treatments Clean and Prevent Further Damage
If you are experiencing pain or swelling around a tooth, you may have nerve damage that needs to be repaired with root canal treatment. Seeking treatment sooner will result in an easier procedure and improved healing times.
Signs you may need a root canal include:
- An Increased Sensitivity to Heat or Cold
- Swollen Gums
- Pain When you Bite or Chew
- Bad Taste in Your Mouth
If you are worried about your tooth pain and think you may need a root canal right now, contact Ross Dental of New Berlin & Waukesha!
When is a Root Canal Necessary?
Root canal treatments (also known as endodontic therapy) are necessary when a cavity reaches through the tooth and infects the pulp, or if there is nerve damage to a tooth (usually from trauma). An infection in the pulp of your tooth can eat away at the surrounding tissue causing an abscess. Such infections are painful conditions that will not heal on their own.
There are instances, however, when there is no pain at all and the abscess is only discovered when you visit the dentist. Make an appointment at Ross Dental today for the best in restorative dental services, including root canal treatment.
Are Root Canals Covered by Insurance?
YES! At Ross Dental we accept a wide variety of insurance coverages for all of our restorative dental procedures. Root canal procedures typically cost $500 to $1,200. Your true cost will vary based on the location of your damaged tooth and the difficulty of accessing it. Patients receiving root canals can get a crown in one day with CEREC same-day crowns.
Some common dental plans we service include:
Additional Financial Assistance
Some dental insurance plans have a 12-month waiting period, but unfortunately, toothaches don’t wait around to bother you until you have those benefits. That’s why we offer affordable payment plans to provide you with the dental healthcare you need when you need it.
