Root canal treatment at our Bonita Springs, FL dental office typically takes two appointments to complete; one to have the root canal performed and another to have your permanent dental crown placed. Most root canals are completed in one appointment and only require a second one if retreatment is needed. The appointment is anywhere between 90 minutes and two hours. Keep in mind that since a permanent dental crown needs to be made, you’ll need to wear a temporary dental crown until we receive your permanent one from a trusted dental lab. After fabrication, you’ll come back in about two weeks to have your permanent crown fitted.

What is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy involves removing damaged or infected pulp tissue from inside a tooth. This way, we can quickly alleviate pain and stop a serious infection from spreading while preserving your natural tooth structure. With the help of our modern technology, sedation options, and our experienced dentists, root canal therapy is generally no more painful than getting a large filling!
