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, 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.

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 ROOT CANAL TREATMENT COST?

The cost associated with this 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.

    “Best dentist and fair! I had broken a tooth and was new to Vegas. I was worried about where to go thinking I’d just be taken advantage of. Dr Godfrey at Lone Mountain Dental was a jackpot for me! He told me I had broken the back side of a crown off and gave me options of how to proceed. I felt so great that he didn’t see me as a cash cow or source of income but as a

    “Great experience from the front desk to everyone in the back. They seem to enjoy what they do and who they do it with. So they came across very pleasant to me as a patient.
