Experiencing intense pain in your tooth? This might call for root canal therapy. Normally, tooth pain indicates infection at the pulp of your tooth. It’s best to repair and save this tooth, by setting an appointment at Dentistry of Orlando so we can perform root canal treatment.
The procedure involves removing the nerves and pulp of the tooth, then cleaning the infected area. Without this treatment, the infection may build up at the root tip and may spread to the surrounding area. This results in swelling which may lead to the tooth needing to be removed.
Our dentists are skilled and experienced in handling emergency pain control. We make sure that the procedure is painless so vou don’t have to worrv about the root canal therapy process.

Don’t endure another night in pain. If you’re experiencing prolonged toothaches, sensitive pain, and extreme tooth decay, it’s time to see your dentist. At Dentistry of Orlando, we conduct dental examinations and x-ray to see if you have root canal infection which needs urgent treatment.
We commonly perform root canal on a front tooth and root canal with crown. Upon careful evaluation, we recommend root canal, or endodontic therapy for the following benefits:
Some dentists recommend tooth extraction right away, but not us. We offer root canal treatment as a permanent solution in preserving the natural arrangement of your teeth.
By treating the root canal infection, we stop the spread of bacteria to its adjacent teeth. Otherwise, pulp infection will accumulate and affect neighboring teeth, causing tooth decay.
The root canal procedure doesn’t stop at removal of infected culp. It is followed by filling up the area with a polymer material or adding crowns to restore teeth visual appeal.
Unlike tooth extraction, a root canal keeps your teeth intact. With missing teeth, jawbone degeneration progresses faster due to exposure to bacteria and other elements.
Root canal treatments preserve teeth and therefore help maintain good oral health. It also prevents heart disease, diabetes, respiratory infections, and gastrointestinal infections.
Root canal therapy is a virtually painless procedure and is often comfortable. We use advanced equipment in cleaning the infected pulp and keep the entire process safe.
Yes, you don’t have to wait until you experience severe pain to have your dentist perform a root canal treatment. If we see that your tooth is decayed, we may suggest root canal treatment to preserve it and prevent the decay from spreading to neighboring teeth.
Root canal procedures are typically done in one visit and usually don't last longer than two hours. If infection is severe or if you choose to have a crown, it will take two visits to complete the procedure.
Yes, most dental insurance will cover the cost for root canal treatment. This treatment is considered a medical process for the benefit of your oral health. It is not considered a cosmetic dentistry procedure.
