Root Canals in Simpsonville, SC

People often dread root canals, but they’re not as intimidating or painful as you might expect.

Each tooth contains at least one root, and depending on its location in the mouth, it may have anywhere from one to four roots. These roots extend beneath the gum line and can sometimes become infected, causing inflammation and severe pain. Root canal therapy can potentially save an infected tooth by cleaning out the root canals, removing the abscess, filling the canals, and then placing a strong new crown on the tooth.

At Emergency Dental Care USA in Simpsonville, SC, we’re your trusted provider for root canal therapy, also known as endodontic therapy. Though this procedure is known for being painful, it is intended to alleviate pain and improve your health. If you have a root infection, we can help you feel healthy and pain-free again, either in our office or, for more complex cases, through a referral to an endodontist (a root canal specialist).

How Much Does a Root Canal Cost?

The cost of a root canal depends on several factors, such as:

  • Affected tooth: Front teeth are easier to access and treat, making them typically less expensive to work on. Rear teeth, like molars, can be harder to reach and may require more work.
  • Location: Pricing varies at each Emergency Dental Care office and is based on the average cost of dental services in the local area.
  • Additional restoration: Teeth that need root canals often have large cavities or decay. Additional restoration, such as crowns or bridges, may be recommended to prevent further damage.
  • Previous root canal: If the tooth has had a root canal before, the procedure may become more complex, affecting the time and cost.
  • Crown cost: Once the root canal is completed, the tooth’s crown must be restored. Crown restoration costs vary depending on the tooth.
