Root Canal Therapy Dublin & Lexington OH

What is a root canal?

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.

At the center of your tooth is the pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth.

Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks, and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature, or pain in the tooth and gums.

Don’t Hesitate To Schedule Your Endodontic Treatment

If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed.

This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases.

If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment.

We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. In addition, we will provide nitrous oxide analgesia, if indicated.

You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.

What happens after treatment?

When your root canal therapy has been completed, a record of your treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. You should contact their office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completion at our office.

Your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery.

If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.

How much will it cost?

The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.

Patient Review by Leslie H

The office atmosphere does not feel like your standard dental office. The staff is very welcoming and helpful with any question I may have had. Dr. Mark made my first root canal as pleasant as one could possibly be. His assistance have all been very welcoming and treated me like I was family. Thank you so much!

Patient Review by Dr. Andrew G

As a referring dentist to Dr. O'banion over the last several years I recently found myself in his chair as a patient. (I needed a root canal on a lower molar due to a cracked tooth). My experience was personable, professional and painless. I will continue to refer my patients and friends to Dr. O'banion now more confidently than ever! Dr. Andrew Gast
