Root Canal Treatment in Fresno, California

Although hearing that you need a root canal treatment scares many patients, the truth is the dentists at CedarNorth Dental have the root canal treatment down to a process that does not have to be feared. We even offer sedation or sleep dentistry for our patients who need it.

If you are in need of a root canal, check out the following details before your procedure to put your mind at ease:

  • What are the signs that I might need a root canal?
    Toothache is the main sign that a root canal might be needed, although not all toothaches require this procedure. The toothache is often accompanied by extreme sensitivity to hot or cold.
  • What is a root canal treatment?
    Inside every tooth is the pulp which includes the nerve and tissues. The pulp is normally protected by the hard outside of a tooth, but when the tooth is injured, bacteria can enter the tooth and cause a painful infection. A root canal treatment is the process of removing the infected pulp. A root canal is the best way to relieve serious pain and make teeth healthy again. After the tooth is re-sealed, it is normally treated with a dental crown to protect it from future injury.
  • Does a root canal hurt?
    Since patients are given anesthesia, a root canal isn’t more painful than a regular dental procedure, such as a filling. While your root canal area may generally feel a bit sore after the procedure and after the anesthesia wears off, this typically does not last long.
  • How much does a root canal cost?
    Every case is unique, and therefore, costs for this procedure may vary. If you have dental insurance, a root canal treatment is probably covered, but be sure to discuss this with our team. Also, ask about financing options.

What a great experience. I have been going here for my Dentist needs for week over 7 years. I enjoy it every time. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The doctor always takes his time and explains what he is about to do. He checks in often to make sure you are comfortable and not in any pain. Thank you so much for the over the top service I always receive. Thanks again.

Friendly and professional front office. Hygienists are always welcoming and listen to my requests. But the reason why I've been going for over 10 years and taking both my children since they were old enough, is for Dr. Wong and Dr. Tong. They are great people and excellent Dentists.
