Schlobohm Dental provides the top root canal treatments near Bethesda, MD because we take into account your complete body health to ensure we help you choose only the healthiest, most effective solutions!
What Is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal treatment is performed to remove infected areas of the soft, inner section of the tooth, also known as the pulp. These infected areas can cause significant pain, and if left untreated, the whole tooth could begin to die. A root canal can save the tooth and allow for proper healing, and it can even lead to further strengthening of the tooth.
Dr. Schlobohm works to detect when root canal therapy is needed before the infection spreads through the bloodstream to the rest of the body.
After the infection has been treated, the tooth will be topped off with a luminous, natural-looking dental crown. At Schlobohm Dental, we use CEREC technology to provide patients with same-day dental crowns. These convenient custom restorations are made in-house on the very same-day as the root canal. They usually take about an hour, so there’s no need for a temporary crown or follow up appointment!
Do I Need A Root Canal?
If you are experiencing the following symptoms, Dr. Schlobohm will use his expertise and specialized diagnostic tools to determine if root canal therapy is right for you:
- Swollen, tender gums
- Pain and tooth sensitivity
- Gum abscess
- Sharp pain when biting down or chewing
These signs can indicate that decay has reached the pulp of your tooth, resulting in infection or an abscess inside the tooth or at the root.
How Much Does A Root Canal Cost?
Out-of-pocket root canal costs will vary depending on the terms of the dental insurance used. To make it easy for you, we are in-network with many major dental insurance carriers. We even work with all PPO plans!
