Monday, March 25, 2019, we will be offering another ONE-TIME OFFER you can’t find anywhere else!
Our ONE-TIME OFFER is for root canal treatment for the low cost of $597*. For those who aren’t familiar with root canal treatment or want to learn more information, we’ve provided you with brief details on what it is.
For most, root canals sound like a terrifying procedure, but the more familiar we are with the treatment, the less likely we are to be anxious about having a root canal. Why might one need a root canal?
Root canal treatment can relieve your pain from the inflammation or infection from inside of the tooth caused by bacteria entering the pulp. It’s a quick, painless procedure that allows your dentist to save your natural tooth. Who doesn’t want to keep their natural teeth; after all, our adult teeth are the only set of teeth we have to preserve after our baby teeth.
A root canal is an endodontic treatment which treats the inside of the tooth particularly the pulp, the soft tissue of the tooth. The pulp contains the blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue that extends from the crown to the roots which are a critical part of the tooth’s growth and development. However, a developed tooth can survive without the pulp since the tooth can still be nourished by surrounding tissue.
Why Do We Need A Root Canal?
Endodontic treatment is required when the pulp is inflamed or infected from various reasons such as:
- Deep cavity
- Repeated dental procedures that disturb the tissue.
- Cracked tooth
- Chip tooth
- Injury to the tooth with no visible cracks or chips
When the pulp is left untreated, it can cause your tooth’s root to be more infected and can lead to an abscess inside the tooth or in the bone around the tooth. A high infection puts you at higher risk of losing your tooth since the bacteria can spread damaging the bone connecting to your jaw.
You want to avoid getting a tooth extraction since the replacement of the tooth is less expensive than getting a root canal, plus a root canal can help save your natural tooth which has its advantages of efficiently chewing and using the physical force for biting, and protecting other teeth from excessive wear.
Root Canal Procedure
Usually, a root canal takes up to one or two dental visits to complete treatment. With new advances in technology and treatment, the treatment process is quick and painless.
Before treatment begins the dentist wants to have x-rays taken to have a better look at your tooth and surrounding bone to assess your dental case better. During this first step, your dentist will numb the area around your tooth including your tooth itself. Once the tooth has been numbed, a dental dam, a small protective sheet, will be placed on the tooth to isolate it and keep it clean and dry.
During treatment, your dentist will work from the top to bottom cleaning and clearing out the infection. To do that, your dentist will create an opening on the top the tooth, and remove and clean the nerves and the rest of the pulp from its chamber and root canals.
Once the tooth has been cleaned and shaped for filling, your dentist will fill the root canals with a rubber-like material and then sealed it with an adhesive cement to ensure root canals are entirely sealed. In some cases, a dentist can place a temporary filling before the tooth is completed restored.
The last step of treatment is restoring the tooth with a crown or filling to strengthen and improve the appearance of the tooth for a full function tooth.
After treatment, the surrounding area and tooth may be sensitive for a few days. Your dentist may prescribe antibiotics if the infection has spread, but it is something your dentist will disclose and discuss with you.
Practicing good oral hygiene after treatment is the trick to caring for your tooth. You want to brush twice a day and floss your teeth daily along with regular dental visits. With proper care, your tooth can last as long as your natural teeth. There is no need to lose your tooth if you get the treatment you need to prevent extensive treatment like a tooth extraction.
Get your root canals cleaned and sealed for the restoration of your natural tooth at the low cost of $597*.
Typically the cost of a root canal cost from $900 to $2,000 depending on where the root canal treatment is needed and where you’re located. (Living expenses based on location can affect how much treatment cost.) You would be saving around $300 on the treatment alone if you come on March 25 and get in on our deal!
