Root Canals in Beaverton, OR
Avoid a Tooth Extraction
A root canal is the removal of inflamed or infected tissue in your tooth. Once it’s removed, the inside of your tooth will be:
Your endodontic treatment also prevents reinfection, so you’ll preserve and protect your smile from further damage.
Dr. Bruno da Costa has extensive training to effectively alleviate your infected tooth from pain and sensitivity.
Don’t wait – the longer you postpone treatment, the more the decay may spread.

The Benefits of an Endodontic Procedure
Treatment costs less than the alternative option of getting your tooth extracted and replacing it with a denture, bridge, or dental implant. Plus, most dental insurances do cover this – saving you out-of-pocket costs.
With modern technology and anesthetic, endodontic treatment is a virtually painless procedure. It also removes the pain-causing infection, relieving you of that discomfort. Fun fact: The American Association of Endodontics claims patients who experience endodontic care are six times more likely to describe it as painless compared to those who have a tooth extraction.
Dr. da Costa will complete your treatment with a tooth-colored filling or custom crown. This step will ensure your tooth is fully functional and, most importantly, blends in with your surrounding teeth.

Questions About Root Canals in Beaverton, OR
Dr. da Costa answers your top questions here.
- Is getting endodontic care painful?
If you associate pain with this treatment, you’re not alone – it’s a common assumption. However:
It’s typically a pain-free procedure, thanks to modern technology and anesthetic.
Our dentist in Beaverton will ensure you are completely numb and comfortable before starting the procedure. We also offer amenities (warm blankets, pillows, music headphones, and aromatherapy) to make your visit more enjoyable.
If you experience discomfort after treatment, it can usually be easily managed with over-the-counter medication.
A root canal procedure should help get you out of pain – not cause more.
- How do you know if you need this treatment?
Here are five common signs you may need a root canal:
- Severe tooth pain while chewing or biting
- Darkening or discoloration of your teeth
- Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Inflammed gums
- Persistent gum dimples
Are you showing any of these signs? If so, contact us to schedule an appointment.
- What happens if you don't get endodontic treatmentl?
If you do not get endodontic care, the infected pulp will remain until it is removed.
The infection may spread to your surrounding teeth and put your overall health at risk for diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

- Should I get a root canal or extraction?
When your tooth’s pulp is infected, you generally have two choices depending on the severity: root canal or tooth extraction. So, which is better?
Because we treat our patients like family and want only the best for them, we typically recommend endodontic treatment. Why?
An endodontic procedure saves your natural tooth, restores your tooth’s health, and preserves the beauty and function of your smile.
If you choose to extract your tooth, the hole left behind can cause your surrounding teeth to shift, make it difficult to chew or speak, and start bone loss, which supports your face and make you look older.
The other option is to replace your extracted tooth with a dental implant. However, this option will cost you more time and money than endodontic care.
