Root Canal Therapy

Have you been suffering through severe tooth pain? CarolinasDentist offers root canal treatment to eliminate infection and provide you with the relief you deserve. With eight convenient locations in Cary, Raeford, Fuquay-Varina, Fayetteville, Porters Neck, Southern Pines, Spring Lake, and Wilmington, we serve patients from all over the state. Contact our team to schedule your appointment at your nearest location!

Root Canal Procedure

During treatment, we’ll use a local anesthetic to numb the area. Next, a small hole will be drilled into your tooth to give us access to clean the infected portion out. Once the pulp has been removed and the canal is cleaned, the tooth is sealed to prevent further infection. If the damage from the infection is significant, some patients may benefit from a dental crown being placed over the tooth after root canal therapy is performed.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy

Many people dread the thought of their dentist recommending root canal therapy, when in fact, there are several benefits of treatment. If you’ve fallen victim to the stigma surrounding root canals, remember that root canal therapy:

  • Relieves severe tooth pain
  • Saves your natural tooth
  • Has a high success rate
  • Includes a quick recovery time
  • Is more cost effective than other restorations

Root Canal or Tooth Extraction?

In most cases, our team will recommend root canal therapy over tooth extraction options. Extractions either require further restorative treatment or leave you with gaps in your smile. Not only are these gaps unsightly, but they also pose problems with maintaining your facial structure, chewing, speaking, and more. Root canal therapy can be completed completely in-house and offers a more speedy recovery time than tooth extraction surgery.

Cost of Root Canal Therapy

The cost of a root canal procedure is dependent upon each patient’s personalized treatment plan. During your visit, we’ll assess the decay and thoroughly go over your treatment options and the cost of each. If you’re worried about paying for your services, we offer an array of flexible financial options to provide you with affordable dental care. CarolinasDentist is dedicated to providing affordable root canal therapy to Raeford and the surrounding communities!
