Root Canal Treatment in Garden Grove, Orange County
The decision between extracting and saving a severely damaged tooth due to trauma, tooth decay, a chip or crack, or extensive dental procedures is not always an easy one. But at Precision Dental, we will always make the decision that allows you to preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. With root canal treatment, the tooth root is preserved, which stimulates the jawbone and prevents your teeth from shifting out of place.
Who Needs Root Canal Therapy?
Usually, root canal becomes necessary due to delayed treatment that allows the bacteria to infect the tooth pulp (connective tissue consisting of blood vessels and nerves). This is very painful, and you need to remove either the infected tooth or remove the pulp through root canal treatment.
Most kinds of tooth damage that cause the tooth pulp to be exposed and result in symptoms such as sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures, severe headaches, darkening tooth color, and swelling gums, can be successfully treated with root canal therapy.
What to Expect During a Root Canal Treatment
If you’re suffering from tooth sensitivity and the associated symptoms, Precision Dental in Garden Grove, CA, may recommend root canal therapy to eliminate the pain and discomfort.
Root canal therapy is a two step process that involves treating an infected, traumatized, or decayed tooth and restoring its strength and structure. First, the infected pulp is removed. Second, the cavity is treated and filled with a non-toxic material to prevent bacteria from hiding there and causing further infections.
You will be numbed during the procedure, so you won’t experience any pain. In fact, with our professional team, your experience will be comfortable, as we get rid of the infection and pain, and restore your tooth to its original condition.
