Root Canal Specialist

The blood vessels and nerves in your teeth are an important part of the tooth’s structure. When a tooth is damaged, those blood vessels and nerves can become infected. The common name for this part of the tooth is the pulp. Root canal therapy is a restorative dentistry procedure which removes the damaged pulp before filling the resulting cavity and sealing the tooth. Root canal therapy is an endodontic treatment, which can be carried out by a qualified General Dentist or an Endodontist. The number of appointments you need will depend on the severity of the damage to the tooth. Your dentist will carry out a full assessment before providing you with details on the steps involved in your root canal therapy.

Root Canal Specialist Offer Pain Relief for Infected Teeth!

 

Damaged pulp can result in sensitivity, pain and discomfort in the affected tooth, gums and supporting bones. Severe infections can also spread to other structures in the mouth. Root canals will relieve pain and discomfort as well as stop the infection from spreading. You will have restored functionality, which will allow you to enjoy your favorite foods and drinks again.

If you are experiencing significant pain, treatment may include a course of medication before your root canal is carried out. Once the infection has been cleared and the tooth is sealed, your dentist will also provide you with aftercare which may include further medication. At Westinghouse Dental, we are focused on ensuring every restorative dental treatment in Georgetown, TX treatment we provide to our patients is successful. 

 

              We do have In-house Endodontist (Root Canal Specialist) who treats difficult to treat molar root canals using state of the art technology and surgical microscope for greater success of treatment.

Cost of Root canals:

Root canals can range from $800-1400/tooth depending on how many roots tooth has and also if it is initial root canal or retreating a previously done root canal. Your PPO insurance usually pays portion of this and you are responsible for your copay. Typically you do need crown as well after getting a root canal to make sure that tooth does not break off. 

Lot of people think that it is cheaper to get tooth pulled out and get an implant later on to save money from root canal, however, that is not true! It’s cheaper to save your tooth (if we can save it) rather than getting an implant or bridge. That being said, if we think that given tooth might not last next few years than we will recommend to move towards with extraction/bone graft and implant. 

 

We want you to receive nothing short of the best dental care available. When you visit Westinghouse Dental for a checkup, our team uses the most advanced technology and practices to assess your needs. Early detection will ensure you receive swift treatment, so contact Westinghouse Dental to schedule your next checkup today.

  • This was my first time and I had an awesome experience. Customer service was great! The receptionist was very helpful and explained everything thoroughly. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for dental care. The Dentist and the tech were also very gentle, helpful, and they care about their patients.

  • We were visiting from out of town and my son had a dental emergency. Dr. Wicheta and his staff were kind enough to see us that afternoon. Everyone was extremely comforting and helped calm the situation. My son received excellent medical care and I am very grateful for this Doctor and his team. I recommend Westinghouse Dental because they care about their patients and provide high quality service.

  • It’s rare to receive a thorough and sincere visit to medical professionals, but I have found the anomaly with this office. The office was pristine and clean. The technology they used did not feel like your average dentist office. Quick appointment response time for confirmation and multiple ways to remind a busy person. I was greeted warmly when I entered the office. My “assistant” was/is phenomenal. The dentist was emotionally intelligent and did not go further than what I was comfortable with. A pleasant experience is almost too simple of a phrase to describe what my experience was. It is couture to patients who don’t feel pushed to do everything all at once, happy employees which means they also feel valued, and their patience are what makes them unique. Finally thank you Starla for the smiles and laughs, Dr. Wichita for your gentleness, the assistant who provided technical assistance, and to my ROCKSTAR dental assistant, she was a peaceful advocate for feeling comfort and providing a beautiful experience from the time I was called back for my exam until my final departure. Then she double downed and did a follow up call the following day. I found a gem and I am here to stay!

  • This place is amazing!!! I have always had a lot of anxiety going to the dentist due to past experiences, but after going here I can say my anxiety has lessened! Courtney was so gentle and caring while cleaning my teeth! I barely felt it and had no discomfort after! I will definitely be seeing her again in 6 months! Dr Wicheta explained everything step by step that I needed to take care of and put my fears at ease! I would give them more than 5 stars if I could!!!
