Biography coming soon…
The fee for your endodontic treatment will be based on the extent of treatment. During your first visit we will discuss the probable number of visits, their length, and the fees involved. Our office will direct-bill to most insurance companies for your convenience. Any balance not covered by your insurance will be due at time of treatment, unless a payment plan has been made prior to treatment.
Will the treatment be painful?
We will take every measure to ensure that your procedure is in no way uncomfortable or painful. If treatment is needed, we will inject a small amount of anesthesia to gently numb a concentrated area of your mouth. For most patients, the feeling of numbness usually subsides after 2-3 hours.
Will I need to return to your office for follow-ups after the procedure is finished?
This is possible, however it will depend on the type of appointment we have scheduled with you. For most root canal treatments, we recommend that patients return to the office 12 months after the procedure was finished. Our office will send a reminder notice to you when you are due for a recall appointment.
