One thought on “How Do You Plan for a Root Canal?

    Your tooth may be sore, and you may have a few swelling in the treated area. However, you should still eat soft foods for a number of days and avoid using the treated tooth to chew until after you receive a permanent crown or filling to protect it. We’ll make sure you understand the cost of your procedure before we begin treatment. Ice and over the counter pain medications should make you more comfortable. You will probably be feeling well enough to return to your normal routine the day after your procedure. For example, our cone beam scanner allows us to get a detailed, three-dimensional view of a patient’s teeth, bones, and soft tissues. Although a root canal can cost a significant amount of money, it’s cheaper in the long run than having a tooth extracted only to replace it later with a dental implant later on. That is why we have advanced technology in our office that helps us plan for endodontic treatment. Armed with that information, we are better able to provide precise, efficient, and effective procedures. We do not simply start treating a patient without fully understanding their diagnosis. As your endodontist in Saratoga, our team will work with you to help you afford your treatment; we accept payment from all PPO insurance companies, and we offer financing through CareCredit.
