Have you been suffering from tooth and mouth pain, swollen gums, or a dental abscess? If so, a dangerous infection may be wreaking havoc just below the gum line, one that requires gentle root canal therapy. At Towncenter Dentistry and Orthodontics, we provide the top root canal treatments near Denver, CO, because they are performed with your comfort and total-body health in mind!
What Is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal treatment is performed to remove the infected areas of the soft, inner section of the tooth known as the pulp. These infected areas can cause significant pain, and if left untreated treated, could cause the whole tooth to begin to die. Root canals are performed to save the tooth, allowing for both the proper healing and further strengthening of the tooth.
Our team works to detect when root canal therapy is needed before the infection spreads through the bloodstream to the rest of the body. After the infection has been treated, the tooth is topped off with a luminous, natural-looking dental crown, right here in the office!
Do I Need A Root Canal?
If you are experiencing the following symptoms, Dr. Chambers will use specialized diagnostic tools to determine if root canal therapy is right for you:
- Swollen, tender gums
- Pain and tooth sensitivity
- Gum abscess
- Sharp pain when biting down or chewing
These signs can indicate that decay has reached the pulp of your tooth, resulting in infection or an abscess inside the tooth or at the root.
How Much Does A Root Canal Cost?
The out-of-pocket costs of root canal therapy will vary depending on the terms of the dental insurance used. To make it easier for our patients, our Denver, CO dental office is in-network with select dental insurance carriers and accepts a variety of flexible payment options including monthly payment plans and in-house dental discounts.
