Root Canal Therapy Will Improve Your Quality of Life

Preserve Your Teeth

Root canal therapy allows you to keep your natural tooth, whereas other options like dental implants require an extraction. We’re committed to saving as much of your healthy tooth structure as possible and provide the most precise dental filling.

Eliminate Sensitivity

You can enjoy all your favorite foods and drinks, again! After a root canal, you’ll feel much more comfortable, as the procedure will eliminate your tooth sensitivity.


Root canal therapy is more affordable than some other dental treatments. Getting a root canal and a crown or filling is much more cost-efficient than replacing the tooth.

Aesthetically Pleasing

We’ll remove the diseased portion of your affected tooth during the procedure while preserving your healthy tooth structure. We may use a filling or place a crown over it to prevent further damage. No one will tell you received a root canal.

More Efficient

A root canal takes less time than dental implants. Dental implants usually take three to four months to complete treatment. But a root canal can be completed in an hour or two, with a second appointment in a few weeks to place a crown (if needed). Hence, it's a much more easier way of dental restoration.

Allow for Future Options

You’re in luck if you’re interested in straightening your smile down the road. Teeth treated with root canals can still be moved with braces or clear aligners, unlike dental implants.

Have Questions About Root Canal Therapy?

We have answers!

Watch the video to find out:

The mention of a root canal causes concern for many about pain. It’s not uncommon to hear “I’d rather have a root canal” when talking about an event or procedure people are worried about.

The pain that comes from a tooth with an infection or a deep cavity can be very severe. Gratefully, root canals solve or alleviate that pain. The procedure for a root canal should not hurt.

We use the CompuDent®…Open a new window to the CompuDent website… anesthetic system to help with comfortable anesthesia, and are trained in advanced techniques for local anesthesia, including the X-Tip®…Open a new window to the X-Tip page…, intraligamentary anesthesia, and blocks. Even so, some patients choose to be sedated for this kind of treatment.

We offer nitrous oxide to every patient as part of the procedure, or oral conscious sedation, and IV deep sedation.

Occasionally, there can be some pain following root canal therapy, but it should be managed with over-the-counter pain medications, and in rare instances, something stronger.

At Legacy Dental, the cost of a root canal procedure is $336 to $2445. Legacy Dental is located in salt lake City and nearby distance to Millcreek.

The cost for a root canal is influenced by which tooth requires treatment, the condition of the tooth, any history of prior root canal treatment, the need to fill or restore the tooth following root canal treatment, and your insurance benefits.

Before beginning treatment, we’ll review the costs and discuss payment options.

For patients that don’t have insurance, we offer our Dental Membership Plan, which provides significant savings of up to 20%.

But for an exact quote, please contact us to book an appointment.

Other alternatives are tooth removal, and rarely a large filling or base with a protective medicated layer called a pulp cap.

Sometimes tooth removal is the best option. If a tooth is badly damaged and it will be difficult to restore the tooth predictably with a crown or filling, removal of the tooth is a predictable option.

If the root is fractured, root canal treatment cannot save the tooth.

Patients that are at very high risk for cavities and have not been able to stop them from developing may be better served by tooth removal and replacement with a dental implant or denture.

If there is a significant infection that has damaged the bone around the tooth, sometimes tooth removal is more predictable.

If the tooth is removed, it is important to consider if and how to replace the missing tooth. When a tooth is removed and not replaced, adjacent teeth will shift leading to other dental problems. Watch our video for more details:

Occasionally, teeth that have been treated with a root canal can fail.


Root canal therapy has a success rate of over 95%!

Many teeth that have been treated with a root canal last a lifetime.

You can preserve its longevity by maintaining a proper oral health routine and regularly visiting your dentist.

It depends on the tooth and your unique needs.

We may simply fill the tooth, especially if it’s a front tooth. But if your tooth has been discolored by decay, we may recommend a crown for aesthetic purposes.

Crowns are necessary for restoring back teeth because your molars are subjected to more pressure (with chewing).

In nearly every circumstance, saving a tooth with a root canal is preferable to a dental implant. Teeth treated with root canal therapy can be more esthetic, more comfortable, more affordable, require less time, and leave you with more future options for treatment, than a dental implant.

Root canal therapy allows you to keep your own tooth.

Your own tooth is most likely the perfect size, shape, and color for your own mouth. Dental implants are a great solution for missing teeth.

But dental implants do not have a ligament like teeth do, so they can sometimes break more easily than a natural tooth. Also, because implants are shaped differently than a tooth root, sometimes they have a larger space near the gum where food can collect.

Finally, sometimes it can be much more challenging to make a dental implant look like a natural tooth, even a tooth that has had a root canal and a crown.

Root canal therapy will make a tooth that is sensitive to cold, or uncomfortable to chew with comfort and allow you to keep your own tooth.

Root canals can also be more affordable.

Removing a tooth and replacing it with a dental implant is almost always more expensive than root canal therapy and a crown or filling.

A root canal takes less time.

Dental implants usually take 3 to 4 months to complete treatment. While a root canal can be completed in an hour or two, with a second appointment to place a crown if needed in a few weeks. If you are interested in straightening your teeth, teeth treated with root canals can still be moved with braces or clear aligners. A dental implant can’t be moved, this might compromise any efforts to straighten your teeth.

I’ve had a fairly intense dental phobia for most of my life, that combined with years of addiction and severe depression really took a toll on my mouth and on my smile. Years ago I started the process of getting dentures with a different dentist and I had such a bad experience that I never wanted to set foot in another dental office again. Then last year when my remaining teeth started to fail, I reached out to Legacy Dental after seeing an add. At my first appointment Dr. H and his staff immediately put me at ease, there was no judgment and it was clear that they knew what they were doing. Throughout the entire process they were professional and they were friendly, and they took really good care of me.Now here I am seven months later and I have my smile back, for the first time that I can remember I can smile confidently, and I can eat normally. And I owe it all to Legacy dental and the wonderful care that they provided.

I really enjoyed my experience here. From the dental assistants, to the hygienist, to Dr. Campbell himself. They did a great job on my teeth cleaning/exam and I really appreciated that Dr. Campbell took the time to go over everything with me thoroughly. He also went through several options with me and explained each in detail for certain needs that I had. I have full confidence in his professional work and the care he provides. Looking forward to my next visit. 👏

Recently visited Legacy Dental with a dental emergency. The team got me in same day and the staff was both courteous and professional. The doctor quickly assessed the issue and took me through my options in detail. The staff then helped arrange a follow up meeting with a partner clinic to treat my issue before I left. Thank you so much Legacy team, a very memorable and positive experience.

If you are one of those individuals who are apprehensive about dental procedures like me, this is the best place for you because Dr. Behlke is an incredible Dentist. He replaced several of my old fillings with precision care and my teeth look beautiful. Another plus I really liked is how the office is professional and easy to find.

I went in for Wisdom tooth pain. They had a last minute cancel and I got in there, same day! Which I was extremely thankful for cuz of the intense pain I was experiencing. I was in and out of there, WITH them being able to do the extraction, and X-ray in less than an hour! They were awesome! And! It was a fraction of the cost of what other offices were charging for the procedure. Especially cuz I don’t have insurance. Amazing staff, excellent dentist! 100/100 for me.

I love Legacy! They are everything you need and more. I've needed emergency dental work on a few occasions and they have always gotten me in same day, within the hour most of the time. Every single staff including dentists have been sweet and positive, and have always made me feel comfortable. I avoided going to the dentist most of my life, I just wish I would have known about them sooner.

Been going to Dr John Campbell for 15+ years. I won’t see anyone else. Every visit has been with as much care and concern as the my first visit. He is thorough, super professional, and won’t settle for anything less than perfection. Thank you Dr Campbell!

Compared to my previous (money hungry) dentist, this place is like a golden palace of greatness! Everyone is friendly and accommodating, and they make sure you're comfortable throughout your visit whether it's a routine cleaning or a crown replacement (I had both). I definitely recommend Legacy Dental! Thank you!
