What is a root canal?


As tooth decay advances, it will eventually reach the nerves in the root of your tooth, called the pulp. When this happens, you’ll start to feel some sensitivity in the tooth, if not an outright toothache. Left untreated, this can turn into an abscess or damage the tooth to the point of extraction.

A root canal removes the cavity and infected pulp (and the pain). A tooth can happily survive without the pulp, making a root canal a great way to keep your tooth and restore function to your smile.

Root canals may also be necessary to treat a cracked tooth or issues from a previous filling or crown.

Answers to your questions


How long does a root canal take?

A root canal typically takes about 60-90 minutes. It’s also possible your treatment will be divided into two separate appointments. We’ll let you know what to expect.


Does dental insurance cover root canal treatment?

In our experience, many dental insurance providers cover up to 50% of the cost of a root canal. We recommend that you consult your policy to understand the exact percentage covered. We’re in-network with most major insurance providers. Please contact us to confirm that we accept your plan.

No dental insurance? Brimfield Family Dentistry offers a comprehensive in-house membership plan to help you afford root canal treatment and other care. Plans start at around $30/month. Contact us to learn more.


Does getting a root canal hurt?

We carefully numb your entire mouth before we begin treatment. You may feel some pressure, but no discomfort. We’ll help you relax throughout your appointment and outline post-op instructions to ensure your comfort, too.
