Non Surgical Root Canal
What is a root canal?
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.
How is a root canal performed?
If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. This injured pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment. We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.
We are excited to be the first Endodontic practice in Northern Colorado to offer this technology. The GentleWave System has been successfully used in over 50,000 cases and by hundreds of practitioners throughout the country. It is by far the most innovative technology in the field of Endodontics today. It couples advanced fluid dynamics with broad spectrum acoustic energy to remove bacteria, debris, tissue, smear layer and even bio-film from the deepest, most complex portions of the root canal system that can not be reached by standard root canal treatment, decreasing the chance of failure over time. Allows us to conserve more tooth structure and better maintain the integrity of the tooth. It is less invasive and a more comfortable treatment approach for patients, reducing post-operative discomfort. https://gentlewave.com/
What happens after treatment?
When your root canal therapy has been completed, a record of your treatment will be sent to your restorative dentist. You should contact their office for a follow-up restoration within a few weeks of completion at our office. Your restorative dentist will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.
How much will it cost?
The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.

The team was patient and caring, making sure I was completely numb, even though it was a longer process and I think put them a bit behind schedule. Excellent patient care!

Amazing. Dr. Shane Bergo is a master at his craft. I have created a great relationship with him at this office and am beyond pleased with the services rendered. Thank you.
I had an emergency root canal treatment need and contacted NCE as an outpatient. The staff immediately got me in, get all paperwork and estimates. Next moment I know - I was with a friendly tech Stormy getting 3D x-rays done, then to the operation chair. Dr Shane Bergo is outstanding - easy hands and so experienced! Very thorough and precise the way how he works. I was feeling much better right after the procedure. And the costs turned out to be very reasonable, as compared to my prior experience with a root canal treatment. Overall, NCE has great people caring for their patients and offering a good value for top quality treatments! Highly recommend.
