Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is a valuable dental procedure that relieves pain and saves your natural teeth by removing infected or damaged tissue, preventing the need for extractions and helping maintain your oral health and smile.

Root Canal Treatment in Littleton, MA

At Nashoba Family Dentists, we specialize in root canal therapy, a treatment designed to save teeth that are severely decayed or infected. Our goal is to restore your oral health and comfort while preserving your natural teeth.

The inner part of a tooth, known as the pulp, is crucial but susceptible to damage from deep decay or injury, leading to potential infections that threaten the tooth’s integrity. Root canal therapy is an essential treatment that targets the infected pulp, alleviating pain and preventing further damage. Concerns about the cost should be weighed against the significant benefits of preserving the tooth’s health and function. Modern techniques ensure minimal discomfort during the procedure, offering effective relief and restoration.

  • How do I know if my root canal is infected?

    An infection in a tooth that has previously undergone a root canal treatment may manifest as pain, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swelling, or tenderness in the gums near the tooth. You might also notice a recurring pimple-like bump on your gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to contact us immediately for an evaluation.

  • How do I know if I need a root canal procedure?

    Common signs that you might need a root canal include severe tooth pain, especially when eating or when you put pressure on the area, sensitivity to hot and cold that lingers after the source is removed, darkening of the tooth, and swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums. Sometimes, however, no symptoms are apparent. Regular check-ups are crucial for detecting potential issues early.

    We aim to provide affordable dental care for our patients in Littleton, MA. The cost of root canal treatment varies depending on the location of the tooth that needs treatment. Out-of-pocket cost for any procedure depends on your insurance coverage at the time.
