When a tooth becomes infected or starts to decay, a root canal can be performed to remove the pulp and preserve the tooth. If gone untreated, a damaged tooth can lead to abscesses, swelling and bone loss that may require a more costly procedure, such as dental bridges and dental crowns. Dr. Acosta performs root canals for patients at our Naples dentist office with the utmost care, using local anesthesia.
A few weeks after a root canal, you can expect to schedule a followup appointment to inspect the progression of your healing, but overall the procedure is a relatively simple process. Root canal costs vary based on the severity of the case, but is less costly than other procedures that require the tooth to be removed.
