Root Canal

Your Go-To Delta Dental Dentist

Dental procedures are not always fun, and sometimes are necessary to avoid a larger dental problem from occurring. In some cases, a root canal may be necessary. In this procedure, the root is removed from a tooth. The root is the part of the tooth that brings blood to the structure and keeps the tooth alive. Sometimes though, through damage or disease, it is necessary to perform a root canal to remove the root. This is a procedure that does not have to be painful or complicated, and often can be performed in just one dental visit. Often, the tooth can appear dark and dead after the root is removed. Talk to your dentist today about options for replacing your tooth following a root canal. The team at August Dentistry has several alternatives to keep a bright and healthy smile, even following a root canal.
                         
As a fairly major procedure performed at the dental office, it is important to ensure that your dental insurance will cover at least a portion of the procedure. The team at August Dentistry is happy to be your go-to Delta Dental dentist. This is a common type of insurance that will cover dental exams and procedures. Of course, before having any procedure performed, it is important to fully understand your individual plan and what will be covered. Work with your dental office and insurance company to learn the ins and outs of the procedure, and what to expect to pay as a co-pay or uncovered expenses.
