The time it takes to complete a root canal varies based on each patient's specific needs and which tooth is being treated. For example, a molar is a larger tooth with more nerve canals than a front tooth. So removing the infected tissue from a molar may take longer than it would with another tooth.
Overall, you can expect that your root canal treatment in Huntsville may last anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes.
At King Dental, we do everything we can to keep you feeling comfortable and at ease during your root canal treatment. Dr. King is gentle and experienced, so you can rest assured that you're in good hands when working with him.
Once your tooth has had time to heal, and we're sure it's infection-free, Dr. King may recommend a crown or permanent filling to rebuild your tooth. Since root canal treatment can make your tooth brittle, it's important to strengthen it with a restoration, such as a crown or permanent filling. Strengthening your tooth ensures that you'll be able to eat and chew with confidence again.
