Here at Studio City Dental Arts, we’re well skilled in root canal therapy, a process that is employed when the nerve of a tooth is injured, whether due to infection or decay.
To save the tooth, a root canal removes the pulp, nerves, bacteria, and decay inside an injured tooth, and then replaces this matter with dental materials. Our dental team believes that having a root canal is the best choice to save a tooth which otherwise would require removal.
Benefits of Root Canals
• Provides Relief for Tooth Pain
• Helps Reestablish Integrity of Teeth Structure
• Helps to Prevent Potential Future Infections
Extracting a tooth is more invasive and costly than root canal treatment – and root canals usually last a life time. How can you tell if you need root canal therapy?
If you’re experiencing sensitivity to hot or cold, a gum abscess, severe tooth pain, swelling or tenderness around a tooth, consult us today. Our experienced dental team will clean out the decayed or injured area of the tooth, and fill and seal the tooth’s inside cavity.
A filling will top the tooth opening, and a crown is then placed over the tooth to protect it from breakage.
