What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a restorative dental treatment used to repair and save a decayed or infected tooth. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed. The inside of the tooth is then cleaned and sealed. A root canal helps eliminate pain associated with infection and decay and saves the tooth.

Signs You Need a Root Canal

Call Ross Dental if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Severe toothache pain lasting for more than a few days, especially pain that worsens with chewing or temperature changes
  • Lingering sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks
  • Darkening of the tooth, indicating decay has reached the nerve
  • Swelling and tenderness in the gums surrounding the tooth
  • Formation of an abscess or pimple on the gums near the infected tooth
  • Broken or damaged tooth with pulp exposure

Our dentists will determine if a root canal is needed to treat the infection and save your tooth. However, the sooner the problem is addressed, the better chance you have of avoiding tooth extraction.

Cost of Root Canal Therapy in Wisconsin

Root canal procedures typically cost between $500 to $1,200. Your true cost will vary based on the location of your damaged tooth, the difficulty of accessing it, and whether your insurance offers coverage for the procedure. Patients receiving root canals can get a crown in one day with CEREC same-day crowns. At Ross Dental we accept a wide variety of insurance coverages for all of our restorative dental procedures.

The Root Canal Procedure

A root canal is a procedure done in multiple appointments to remove infected pulp and nerve tissue from inside a tooth. The hollowed-out chamber and root canals are cleaned, shaped, decontaminated and sealed to prevent further infection. This restorative treatment saves the natural tooth as an alternative to extraction.

Here is what to expect during a general root canal:

  1. Local anesthesia is administered to numb the area around the tooth being treated. This helps make the procedure comfortable.
  2. To access the pulp chamber, an opening is made in the top of the tooth to remove any decayed tissue.
  3. The pulp and nerve tissue will be fully removed from the root canal using small dental instruments. The dentist will clean, shape and decontaminate the now hollow chamber and root canals.
  4. After cleansing, the root canal is filled and sealed with a rubber-like material to prevent recontamination. The material used is called gutta-percha.
  5. A temporary filling is placed in the access opening on top of your tooth. Later, a permanent restoration such as a dental crown will be added for protection.
  6. A follow-up exam is done to check healing and ensure the tooth is functioning properly after treatment. You may need prescription pain medication during recovery.
  7. Over 1-2 appointments, the root canal is fully cleaned, shaped, filled and restored. Your tooth can then function just like normal once again!
