Same Day Root Canal
There’s no significant downside to a patient having to wait for a second visit to have a crown placed, though they will have to make a special effort not to chew with the tooth that has been treated. Even so, the sooner the crown can be placed the better.
The crown provides the final seal over the treated area, keeping new bacteria out of the interior of the tooth. Hillock Family Dentistry can provide same-day root canal treatment for patients who desire it.
Aside from the preventive health benefits, same-day treatment may be preferred by patients with busy lives who would prefer to have the entire process completed in one day. Thankfully, if you are looking for a same-day root canal in Modesto, Hillock Family Dentistry can help.
Once the root canal is complete, a camera scans the tooth to make a three-dimensional image. While you wait, the image will be used to design and create a custom crown that will seal perfectly to your tooth
