Miami Root Canal Treatments

Helping Patients Relieve Pain from Inflammation or Infection

Are you looking for a root canal specialist in Miami? Are you asking yourself: What is the cost of a root canal in Miami? Endodontic treatment, more commonly known as root canal therapy, is necessary when the nerve tissue (pulp) of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on your tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. With proper care, a root canal tooth will function normally for years to come.

Advantages of root canal treatment:

  • Ability to save tooth vs. tooth extraction
  • Will remove pain and infection in the nerve
  • Will prevent infection from spreading to bone or adjacent teeth

Disadvantages of root canal treatment:

  • May require antibiotic treatment
  • Access to the tooth may be difficult or tricky
  • Often requires referral to a specialist

Root Canal Procedure

When decay or damage goes untreated it can result in an infection of the nerve canal (pulp chamber) of the tooth. Hopefully, you don’t need an emergency root canal!

Root canal therapy is done under anesthetic by creating a small opening in the tooth first. Then, very small instruments are used to clean and shape the root canal spaces. Cleaned spaces are filled with a material and specialized cement to ensure complete sealing of the root canals.

Root Canal & Crown

Following root canal treatment, your dentist will likely recommend a crown. Root canal teeth become brittle and prone to fracture over time. Crowns are placed on root canal teeth to prevent them from fracturing.

Root Canal Alternative – Dental Implant

If a tooth requires a root canal procedure, few alternatives to therapy exist. If a root canal is not done, the alternative is extraction followed by dental implant placement.

There are times when the long-term prognosis of a root canal is poor. In these instances, the dentist will recommend extraction of that tooth and implant placement to ensure a better outcome. Investing money in a root canal treatment that may likely fail in the future is not a sound decision. Therefore proper diagnosis is the key to successful root canal treatment.

Using the latest 3D digital technology and over twenty years of experience, Dr. Julio Hernandez can help you determine whether root canal treatment is right for you. If you are concerned about the root canal cost, we offer interest-free financing at Biscayne Dental & Facial Aesthetics!
