A tooth infection can cause severe pain. Left untreated, decay can lead to tooth loss and other issues.
At Bailey Dental Group in Richmond, MI, our dentist can perform a root canal procedure to restore the health and comfort of your smile.
So why should you consider undergoing root canal treatment with Dr. Cynthia E. Bailey?
Why Consider Advanced Root Canal Treatment?
Gentle Treatment MethodsDr. Bailey uses modern root canal techniques, as well as local anesthesia, to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during your endodontic procedure. This procedure can provide significant relief from tooth pain.
ProtectionEven a small cavity, when left untreated, can eventually lead to the loss of a tooth. With a root canal, we can preserve the healthy exterior of your tooth to prevent the need for extraction and tooth loss.
Restored Oral HealthOnce a dental infection exists, it can spread to neighboring teeth and gum tissue. An infection of the root canal can affect the tissue and pulp within the tooth, and eventually reach the jaw and cause bone loss. Receiving prompt treatment at our Richmond practice can help you avoid more serious oral health concerns.
Paying for a Root Canal
When developing your root canal treatment plan, we will work with your insurance provider to obtain as much coverage as possible. We also accept financing and all major credit cards, which allow patients the option of paying for treatment over the course of several months rather than upfront.

From Our Root Canal Patients
This office is so accommodating. I always feel like I am going in to see friends. The staff is amazing. Thanks for being there when I needed an emergency root canal, now that has been an adventure. Thanks again!
Love Dr. Bailey's work... She does what is necessary, without trying to sell me something that is unnecessary. Example: I have one dentist trying to sell me two root canals with two crowns ..... when all that was needed was one root canal with one crown, and one cavity filling (saving me around $1500+) Thanks to Dr. Bailey, she saved my teeth and my wallet

When Can We Save Your Tooth?
Healthy Outer Structure
Root canal treatment deals mainly with the inside of the tooth, or the pulp. During a consultation, Dr. Bailey can assess whether the exterior of your tooth is healthy enough to support a dental crown. If not, we may recommend tooth extraction.
Since wisdom teeth are not necessary for proper oral function, we do not typically recommend a root canal when these teeth become infected. Instead, we will likely recommend wisdom tooth removal to restore the health of your smile.
