Frequently Asked Questions About Endodontics
Why do I need an endodontist?
Most dentists have the necessary training and experience to perform root canals and possibly some other endodontic procedures, but may not have the same level of expertise as an endodontist. An endodontist has completed the educational requirements to practice general dentistry as well as additional education and training to practice endodontics as a specialization. They are likely more prepared to handle complex endodontic procedures than a general dentist.
Is a root canal painful?
Somehow the term root canal became synonymous with pain and suffering. However, this is completely untrue. A root canal can be performed with local anesthesia and is no more uncomfortable than a routine cavity filling. It is much less invasive than having a tooth extracted, and a root canal can most likely save your tooth.
How long does a root canal take?
On average a root canal may take about an hour. A simple root canal procedure could be as short as 30 minutes and a complex root canal procedure could take as long as 90 minutes. You can expect your procedure to fall somewhere within that range.
Does dental insurance cover endodontics?
It depends on your individual insurance plan. Some plans cover root canals and other endodontic procedures, at least in part. Contact your dental insurance provider to ask what your plan covers. CareCredit is an option for financing the cost of procedures not covered by your insurance or the out of pocket expense left over after insurance.
