Root Canal Symptoms

Don’t suffer another day with pain. When you experience a toothache, it’s often a sign of infection. The infection can be caused by trauma, decay, cracks and chips. Symptoms of the infection may include a fracture or swelling. Symptoms also may include sensitivity to chewing, pressure, or temperature.

If you experience any of these symptoms, do not delay treatment. In order to prevent the spread of infection and the loss of your tooth, a root canal may be necessary. If you think you may need treatment, call us at 303-221-3044 or submit the contact form below.

“Last Tuesday I came into the office to have a root canal. The pre-process was so smooth and pleasant as were the wonderful staff members. I was amazed with how quickly the process took and how very gentle Dr. Butterman skilled hands performed while explaining throughout the procedure everything that was going to happen. Oddly – I actually enjoyed the experience. Then I received a RX for pain meds with instructions to take later for pain. I filled the RX and put the bottle in my purse to retrieve when the pain came – hmmmmmmmmm – I am writing this note to you on Friday evening and I am still waiting for the pain to come. Simply amazing. Thank you so very much – no pain – no soreness – no nothing. I have never had this experience before with a dentist. So – I have told two of my co-workers to call you. Thank you all a million times.”

Single Visit Root Canals

Root Canal Technology

An ideal root canal starts with an accurate diagnosis. In our office, we use the Sironal 3-D Imaging System to diagnose root canal symptoms. Three-dimensional imaging of the canal system enables Dr. Butterman to view root anatomy that otherwise would be missed with a two-dimensional x-ray. With the high resolution imaging capabilities of our 3-D system, he can detect lesions, infections, and fractures with more accuracy.

Having diagnosed the precise source of the symptoms, Dr. Butterman can clean and seal the canals and complete your root canal in one visit, usually in about an hour.  And if a crown is necessary, our CEREC in-office digital crown system allows us to make the crown in the same visit as the root canal.

Root Canal Cost

How much does a Root Canal cost?

Because no two teeth are alike, root canal cost varies on a case by case basis. During your first appointment, Dr. Butterman will provide you with a detailed treatment plan, including pricing. A Root Canal is an investment, and it is essential to select a root canal expert with the skills, technology, and experience you trust.

Is a Root Canal covered by my insurance?

Dental insurance companies typically cover root canal treatment. We can coordinate your coverage with your insurance company and submit a pre-authorization for your root canal. If you do not have insurance, or your insurance company does not cover root canals, we offer a variety of payment and financing options.
