We Provide High-Quality Care For Your Dental Emergencies.
If you experience tooth pain that won’t go away, that could be a sign you need an emergency root canal. It’s best to address dental issues as soon as possible to avoid further damage to your tooth and surrounding tissues. A small issue could develop into a big issue, like a tooth abscess, if left untreated. Get care from your dentist in Vancouver, WA for an emergency root canal.
What is an emergency root canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure that removes inflamed and infected tooth pulp, cleans and disinfects the area, and then fills and seals the tooth. It’s important to remove the infection so it doesn’t spread to other areas of your mouth. This common procedure has a reputation for being painful, but it’s actually a pain-relieving treatment.
How do I know if I need an emergency root canal?
If you’re experiencing any tooth pain contact Ranieu Family Dental right away. Your dentist will diagnose your dental issue and tell you if a root canal is needed. If you experience extreme pain, sensitivity, or pressure in a single tooth, it’s often the result of an infection due to deep decay, facial trauma or a crack or chip in your tooth. Additional symptoms that may indicate you’ll need an emergency root canal are:
- Severe pain while biting or chewing
- Chipped or cracked tooth
- Sensitivity to hot or cold
- Swollen or tender gums
- Deep decay
- Darkening of gum tissue

Does a root canal hurt?
You won’t feel anything during your root canal procedure because you’ll receive local anesthetic to numb the area. We also offer nitrous oxide to help you relax. However, you might be slightly sore after the procedure. A root canal is a deep cleaning of the canals in your teeth and may leave the surrounding nerves and tissue a bit sensitive afterward. It’s normal to experience mild to moderate pain for a few days after a root canal. Talk to your dentist about post-treatment comfort measures like over-the-counter pain killers and what thing to avoid to reduce discomfort. If you experience anything beyond this, contact us right away.
Can I eat after a root canal?
As with any dental procedure for which you received local anesthetic, we recommend waiting until the numbness has worn off before eating or drinking (with the exception of water.) Once you’ve regained feeling in the area, start of with soft foods and moderate temperature foods and liquids.
How much does a root canal cost?
It depends on the tooth that needs a root canal – front, premolar, or molar. How much insurance will cover depends on your particular plan. It’s important to us that finances don’t stand in the way of you getting the treatment you need, that’s why we accept several dental insurance plans and payment options, and we offer an in-house dental savings plan.
