Root Canals

Are you experiencing pain or sensitivity when you eat or drink? Have you suffered a large cavity or crack to one of your teeth? You may need endodontic treatment to address a possibly dangerous infection in the pulp of the tooth which could spread to the rest of the body.

Dr. McLean provides the top root canal treatments near La Grande, OR because we perform almost all endodontic treatment in-house. That means you can get your tooth treated by the same team you know and trust.

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal treatment is typically recommended to patients who are suffering an infection at the pulp of the tooth. When these infected areas are left untreated, they can cause extreme pain and could lead to the total loss of the natural tooth. When root canals are performed, they can save teeth and maintain the health of the rest of the body.

During your initial appointment, Dr. McLean will examine your mouth and take x-rays of the affected area. If he locates an infection, he will develop a treatment plan that fits your needs and schedule. On the day of your appointment, you will be given medicine to help make the procedure a comfortable one. We will also seal the tooth with a luminous, tooth-colored crown, custom-shaded and custom-shaped to match the rest of your smile.

Do I Need A Root Canal?

If you are experiencing the following symptoms, Dr. McLean will use advanced dental technologies to determine if a root canal is right for you:

  • Swollen, tender gums

  • Pain and tooth sensitivity

  • Gum abscess

  • Sharp pain when biting down or chewing

How Much Does A Root Canal Cost?
