Root Canal Therapy in Lone Tree
What is a root canal?
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.
At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.
If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. In addition, we will provide nitrous oxide analgesia, if indicated.
What happens after treatment?
When your root canal therapy has been completed, a record of your treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. You should contact their office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completion at our office. Your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.
How much will it cost?
The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.

Dr Parry and staff are amazing!! They fit me in for a root canal and were extremely helpful. This is definitely the place to go for a root canal. They are friendly and caring. I received phone calls and a nice card after my treatments to ensure I was feeling better after the procedures. Definitely one of the best Dentist offices I have visited. I will definitely use them again and will refer to them if ever asked. Thank you so much Dr. Parry and team!

I had a very good experience recently when I underwent a root canal. Dr. Parry and his dental assistant, Michelle, made me comfortable during the procedure, and also they were caring and kind. They anticipated my needs and were very accommodating all the while checking in with me frequently to see how I was doing. The followup call the next day was appreciated.

It's not a favorite event to look forward to - having a root canal. But if you have to have one, I would highly recommend Dr. Parry. It was painless and Dr. Parry and Patsy, Michelle and Kelsi went out of their way to make me comfortable. I even enjoyed the music. Couldn't sing along but the music was good. The office is spotless and easy to find. Thank you everyone for helping me with my health.

I absolutely loved my experience with Dr. Heath Parry. I was referred to him by my general dentist for an evaluation for a root canal. Dr. Parry was honest, ethical with a warm professional bed-side manner. He conducted a number of tests and determined that a root canal was not needed at this time; you dont find many doctors these days who readily do the right thing at their own financial expense (for the good of their patients). Strongly recommend him and his entire office. I know that down the road this tooth will likely need a root canal and thankfully, I have the perfect doctor to do it when the time comes.
