A root canal procedure may be needed to address infections at the base or root of the tooth. Buffalo General Dentistry is proud to provide patients with high-quality preventative, cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry services in a warm, comfortable office setting. With more than 10 years of experience, Dr. Daniel Jammal is happy to offer root canals to patients in Amherst and the neighboring communities of Buffalo, NY.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal procedure addresses an infection or growth of bacteria in the base or root of the tooth. Not only does a root canal eliminate the infection beginning to grow at the root of the tooth, but it also helps prevent the spread of the infection into the tooth itself. Dr. Jammal and his expert team of dental professionals are proud to offer root canal treatments that are both quick and comfortable, so patients can get the treatment they need without having to take a large amount of time out of their busy schedules.

How Do I Know If I Need a Root Canal?

Dr. Jammal and his team may recommend undergoing a root canal procedure if you’re experiencing:

  • Pain when biting down or chewing
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Pimple-like growths on the gums
  • Swollen and tender gums
  • Decay and darkening of the teeth

What Can I Expect During My Root Canal Procedure?

Your root canal will be performed by Dr. Jammal and his expert dental team in our comfortable office. Before your root canal begins, Dr. Jammal will administer local anesthetic to your treatment area. Once the area is numb, a dental dam may be applied to keep your tooth clean throughout your procedure. Dr. Jammal will then begin to clear decayed and diseased portions of your tooth. Once the entire root, inside, and outside of the tooth is clean, the openings made in the teeth will be filled with composite resin. As a result of the root canal, teeth often become brittle, so protection of the treated tooth with a dental crown is recommended to ensure longevity.  This crown will match the natural look and feel of your tooth. This entire treatment process may take more than one visit to complete. Dr. Jammal will be happy to walk you through the details of your root canal during your visit. 

How Much Does a Root Canal Cost?

The cost of your root canal will vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your healthiest smile. The best way to find out how much your root canal will cost is to come in for a private appointment with Dr. Daniel Jammal. In addition to working with most insurance providers, we are happy to offer flexible financing options through CareCredit®, Wells Fargo, and an in-house Smile Club Loyalty Plan.

I highly recommend Dr. Jammal. His approach is friendly and compassionate while having extensive knowledge in all aspects of dentistry. He takes the time to really understand the issue, find the right treatment plan and ensures the patient is comfortable.

I’ve recommended Dr. Jammal to my parents and they too have never been so pleased with a dentist as they have been with Dr. Jammal.

What an amazing team-this office is the whole dang package and more! I’ve never been treated as one of the family by an office until this one. The hygienist is able to accommodate my remarkable sensitivity and still do a fantastic thorough job. The doctors assistant is so funny and put meat such ease during a usually high-anxiety procedure. Dr. Jammal really took the time to get to know me, again, treating me like more than just a patient—when I’m there, I’m a member of the office family. I could not be more lucky than I have been to find Dr. Jammal and the whole staff. If you’re looking for a dentist that can handle your dental anxiety, look no further—this is absolutely the place for you.

Great place with wonderful staff! Everyone is great there! Love my hygienist I have been going to her for years! Also, the dentist is professional and makes you feel comfortable. I decided to do a filling naturally without novocaine and it went great! Highly recommend!
