Root Canal Therapy

This dental specialty addresses the tissues and structures inside the tooth. The most common procedure performed in this specialty is root canal therapy. Root canals are often necessary when a bacterial infection reaches the pulp of the tooth. This dead and dying tissue needs to be removed to stop the pain and the spread of the infection or the tooth may be lost.undefined

Root canal therapy may be needed to treat:

  • Infection caused by untreated tooth decay
  • Bacterial infection in the pulp of the tooth
  • A crack or fissure in the tooth allowing bacteria to enter
  • Dental trauma
  • Excessive dental procedures on the same tooth

Although root canals have gotten a bad reputation, the procedure itself is not too painful. In most cases, only local anesthesia is needed. The dentist will make a small opening in the tooth to expose the pulp chamber and root canals. Very tiny instruments are used to remove dead and infected tissue from the root canal passages. The area is then cleaned, disinfected, and a filling is placed to seal the tooth.

Other Endodontic Treatments

Although root canal therapy is the most common procedure offered, we perform other endodontic procedures as well. These include treatment for dental trauma, intermittent tooth pain, pain involving more than one tooth, and microsurgery on the tips of the tooth roots. The main goal is to preserve your natural teeth.

If you require endodontics in Sherman Oaks, call (818) 918-3295 for an appointment.
