Our Root Canal Process
You need a root canal when the soft pulpy material inside your tooth becomes infected and inflamed, often causing a toothache. Our dentists will:
- Carefully remove all the infected material using modern rotary technology
- Sanitize the cavity and the canals inside your tooth
- Fill the cleaned-out cavity with a durable material called gutta-percha
- Seal your tooth
- Restore it with a dental crown
Our Experienced Staff
You wouldn’t want a rookie performing your root canals procedure! Fortunately, all three of our dentists have surgical experience. Dr. Stephen Cohen has a special interest in root canals treatment (endodontics). And our support staff has 70-plus years of combined experience.
Our Root Canal Options
The usual alternative to a root canal is extracting an infected tooth, then replacing it with a dental bridge or, dental implant or denture. Our dentists will help you determine which option is right for you. Some factors to consider:
- Cost. While the upfront cost of a root canal is generally more than an extraction, the total cost of an extraction is often higher after the subsequent tooth replacement.
- Convenience. We can typically complete a root canal in one or two visits of about an hour each. A tooth extraction is quicker. But depending on the tooth replacement you choose, you may need to make several visits to our Nashua, NH dentist office.
- Appearance. Even the best tooth replacement won’t look and feel exactly like your natural tooth.
