What Is Endodontics?
Endodontics is a dental specialty that deals with the tooth's innermost layers and all of its structures, such as pulp, dentin, and nerve. Endodontic therapy also includes root canal treatment which removes diseased or damaged tissue from inside the tooth, reshapes the root canal to promote natural healing, and saves teeth that might be lost. This therapy is often used when a tooth is severely decayed, has had a large filling placed, or is injured.
Types of Endodontics Treatment
- Non-Surgical Treatment
The procedure is also called root canal treatment. This is the most common type of endodontic treatment and is usually successful. It is used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay.
- Surgical Treatment
Surgical treatment is often needed when the tooth has extensive damage or an abscess, cyst, or tumor in it. If you have an infection, broken or cracked teeth, or a large filling that has fallen out of your back teeth, Dr. Doan will recommend surgical treatment. This procedure can be more complicated than non-surgical root canal therapy and is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation given orally or intravenously. It is also performed in a hospital setting.
The Cost of Root Canal Procedure
The cost of a root canal procedure will vary depending on the severity of the problem and the type of anesthesia used. Dr. Doan offers cost-effective non-surgical procedures, and she will work with you to find a payment plan that fits your budget. If you need a surgical procedure, the cost may be higher. However, this should not worry you because our office offers financing through CareCredit. Also, Avalon Family Dentistry accepts most insurance plans which will help you cover a portion of the cost.
Importance of Endodontic Therapy
The treatment of a tooth's pulp and root canal system is essential to the health of your teeth. The normal dental pulp consists of soft tissue, blood vessels, and nerves found within the center or core of each tooth. If you damage this area from decay or an injury, it may cause a severe problem for your oral health if not treated immediately.
If you are experiencing tooth pain or other problems, like a crack in one of your teeth, Dr. Doan will recommend the best endodontic therapy for you. If necessary, she will provide sedation to keep you comfortable during treatment and work with an oral surgeon if needed to complete your root canal procedure successfully.
