How is a root canal performed?
Our skilled dentists at Absolute Dental carefully remove the infected pulp from inside your tooth during a root canal procedure. The tooth’s inner chamber is then thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to remove any bacteria or debris.
Once cleaned out, the space is filled with a biocompatible material to restore strength and preserve your tooth’s natural structure. Following this process, we recommend placing a dental crown over the treated tooth for added protection and long-term durability.
How long does a root canal take?
The duration of a root canal in Minden can vary depending on various factors, such as the complexity of the infection, the tooth’s location, and individual patient circumstances. On average, a root canal treatment typically takes one to two hours.
During your initial consultation at Absolute Dental, our experienced dentists will evaluate your specific situation and provide an estimated treatment time frame. We understand that each patient has unique needs and concerns, so we take great care to work efficiently while ensuring your comfort throughout the process.
In some cases, particularly complex or severe infections may require multiple appointments to ensure thorough cleaning and effective treatment. The dentist will discuss these details during your consultation so that you clearly understand what to expect regarding appointment scheduling, how long a root canal takes, and your overall treatment plan.
Absolute Dental has special offers for those without insurance or whose insurance plans don’t cover elective surgery. We also have a Smile Saver program that makes it easier to afford dental care without insurance.
