Dealing With an Emergency?
If you’re experiencing signs of an infected root canal — such as severe pain or an abscess — it’s crucial to visit a dentist who’s ready to help. Our emergency patients are typically seen very quickly and fit within business hours.
When Is a Root Canal Needed?
What Root Canal Therapy Can Do for You
The side effects of a root canal infection can make it difficult to focus on work, eat meals, or sleep throughout the night. Treatment will eliminate the infection and do away with these detrimental side effects so you can live life to the fullest.
When compared to alternatives like tooth extraction or dental implant placement, root canal therapy is a more cost-effective option. Early treatment stops the infection from taking hold elsewhere, which could increase your treatment costs in the long term.
Dental decay and gum inflammation — which are common symptoms of a root canal infection — can impact the look of your smile. After your dentist clears the decay and infection and places a filling, a protective dental crown can be crafted to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

Prompt treatment of an infected root canal minimizes the chances of needing tooth extraction, suffering bone loss, and having the infection spread — which can result in more costly dental procedures. However, you don’t need to visit an endodontist; Bonner Family Dentistry can help.

Why Patients Turn to
Bonner Family Dentistry
for Root Canal Treatment and More
We understand that fear of pain and discomfort during a root canal can stop individuals from getting treatment in the first place. Fortunately, we offer sedation dentistry options, use rotary tools to provide fast treatment, and utilize ultrasonic devices to eradicate infection.
In most cases, we can perform a root canal and place a dental crown in a single appointment. Thanks to CEREC technology, patients can reap the benefits of a high-quality, custom restoration immediately after their root canal therapy.
What Happens During a Root Canal?
The treatment and number of visits can vary slightly based on the severity of your infection.
Traditionally, root canal treatment can take up to four appointments. We can complete your entire procedure in just one visit.
Root Canal Therapy
Since the procedure is considered medically necessary, dental insurance should cover some or all of the cost of root canal therapy. We work with most dental insurance providers and are happy to help secure maximum coverage on your behalf.
For out-of-pocket costs, qualified patients can pay them over time. Our practice accepts third-party financing through CareCredit, which allows patients to pay for their treatment in monthly installments with little to no interest.
Dental Implants Can Replace Teeth After Root Canal Infections
In some cases, a root canal treatment may not be successful or ideal, which means your dentist will need to perform a tooth extraction. Fortunately, our team in Dumas, TX, can effectively replace missing teeth with dental implants. This restorative dentistry solution provides the ultimate foundation for high-quality restorations — including crowns, bridges, and dentures — while preventing jawbone atrophy.
