How Long Does a Root Canal Take?

It is with the help of root canal procedures that we can save our natural teeth from the harmful bacteria and the dangerous infections that they impose. Each year, dentists perform about 10.9 million root canal procedures with the hope of removing the dead dental pulp and replacing it with a dental crown. Dr. Amin Samadian happens to be an advanced dentist specializing in aesthetic and implant dentistry, among other aspects of our dental health.

What Happens During a Root Canal Procedure?

The purpose of a root canal is to preserve your natural tooth while removing the damage in its roots. Every year dentists perform up to 15 million root canals around the US. Dr. Amin Samadian is responsible for a good share of the successfully performed root canals around San Francisco and East Bay, California. A root canal is required when the dental pulp is infected or dead. The dental pulp is the tooth’s living, soft substance that fills its center. Unfortunately, the dental pulp is also often affected by infections and inflammation. During a root canal procedure, a local anesthetic is used to numb the area around the diseased tooth. The next step involves cleaning the inside of the tooth to remove any damaged tissue and treat infections. In the end, a dental crown that resembles your natural teeth is placed. 

Dr. Samadian is using ultrasonics and cone beam CT scan to ensure top results. That way, he is helping improve your dental health and prevent any unwanted infections, swelling, and tooth loss.

How Long Does a Root Canal Take?

Root canals are often simple procedures that will not take too much of your time. The majority of procedures take anywhere between 30 to 60 minutes. Some more severe cases require up to 90 minutes. Dr. Samadian makes sure to finish your root canal in one session so that you do not have to go back again. This, however, depends on the severity of your case and dental health. One thing is sure – you do not have to worry about pain. If anything, your root canal will free you from all that annoying pain. 

How Much Does a Root Canal Cost?

The price range of a routine root canal varies greatly. It all depends on which tooth is being treated, as well as who is performing the procedure. Since molars typically have more canals than incisors, for example, the price for a molar root canal is higher. We see root canal treatments cost between $2000 to $2800. Schedule a visit to Dr. Samadian to discuss the available financial options. There are a variety of affordable financial options to choose from, you just have to make the first step.
