Baldwinsville Root Canals
Treat decay and save your natural teeth
Clear away decay to relieve oral pain
For minor instances of tooth decay, a simple filling will do the trick to stop decay in its tracks. But when decay advances a little too far for a filling, a root canal can stop the decay and save your natural tooth.
At Baldwinsville Family Dental, we offer root canal treatment right here at our local office. We’ll work with you to make sure you are completely comfortable during treatment, in part by offering multiple sedation options.
Signs you might need a root canal
- Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Painful and lingering unexplained toothache
- Pain while chewing and eating
- Swollen gums around a specific tooth

Root Canal FAQs
Are root canals painful or unsafe?
Absolutely not! While root canals can lead to some discomfort immediately after treatment, root canals will actually relieve pain when you are suffering from tooth decay.
How long can root canals last?
Your root canal will last around 10 years or even much longer when cared for properly, including attending twice-yearly exams and cleanings and practicing good at-home oral care.
Will insurance cover my root canal treatment?
While all insurance plans are different, most insurance plans cover a portion of our root canal treatment. Contact our office for full details on what is covered.
