Get Comfortable Root Canal Treatment From Our Experienced Team

You may have heard horror stories about people getting root canals and how they’re such an awful experience. The truth is, our patients report that their root canal treatment is no more uncomfortable than getting a tooth filled. That’s because our team will take its time, explain exactly what is happening, and answer any questions you have about your procedure.

We’ll also offer you dental sedation if you’re nervous. Mild, pleasant laughing gas will give you an all-over feeling of euphoria and help you forget all about your procedure. In addition, we offer amenities that include:

  • Private patient care rooms for calm and quiet treatment
  • TVs to help take your mind off dental work
  • Blankets to chase away the chill

Dr. McCullough will remove the diseased inner portion of your tooth that’s causing you pain. Then he’ll sterilize the tooth and fill it with a rubber-like material to prevent further problems. Finally, he’ll put a temporary filling on the tooth until you get your new crown as a final restoration.

Don’t hurt any longer than you have to! Call us now at 618-668-2655 for root canals in Greenville. You can also request an appointment online.

Common Questions About Root Canals

Why have a root canal?

If the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected, you’ll need to have a root canal or remove the tooth. Otherwise, the infection can worsen and spread to your jaw and even elsewhere in your body, causing potentially serious health issues. You’ll recover more easily from a root canal than an extraction, and it keeps your tooth structure in place.

Are root canals painful?

While they have that reputation, most patients find a root canal no more uncomfortable than receiving a filling. The procedure eliminates pain; it doesn’t cause it! We’ll numb your mouth with local anesthesia so you don’t feel pain. You may find it easier to relax if you also receive our safe dental sedation.

How much does a root canal cost?

Treatment costs can vary greatly for a root canal, so you will need to come in for an initial exam and imaging before we can give you a cost for your particular procedure. For your convenience, we offer several flexible payment options, including financing through CareCredit and Sunbit.
