Root Canal Therapy – Beverly Hills, CA

How We Save
Your Damaged Teeth

 

When teeth are in pain, we don’t simply have to extract it. Instead, we take all the necessary steps to restore and save it whenever possible. One of the best and most effective ways to save a severely damaged tooth is through root canal therapy, which tends to get a bad reputation. All of our dentists and most of the staff have in fact had root canal therapy! The fact of the matter is skipping root canal therapy when you need it only allows discomfort to continue and increases the chances of you needing an extraction. If you have severe dental discomfort, don’t hesitate to call us right away for pain-relieving root canal therapy in Beverly Hills, CA!

The Root Canal Procedure

If we determine that a root canal is the best treatment option moving forward we will either perform the service in our dental office or if we determine it is better addressed by a specialist, we will not hesitate to make that referral. If we determine we can provide that service to you in our dental office, we’ll start by numbing the tooth and surrounding gum tissue in order to make your treatment as pain-free as possible. Then, we’ll create a small access hole in the top portion in order to reach the pulp and interior tissue in the center of the tooth. After clearing away dead or decaying tissue as well as irritating and shaping the canal, we’ll replace it with gutta-percha, a rubber-like material that reduces future infections. Finally, we’ll cover the tooth with a crown to seal the access hole created previously.

Reasons for a Root Canal

The most common reason we perform a root canal is because of long-term decay that has reached past the many layers of enamel and deep into the inner area where the pulp and nerve tissue lie. However, root canals may also be needed if the tooth suffers from physical trauma, leaving the vulnerable inner area exposed to bacteria. If you experience severe dental discomfort or facial swelling and a fever, this is considered a dental emergency and needs to be handled right away by a dentist.
