Root Canal Therapy in Northridge, CA

Root Canal Therapy

What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a dental treatment used to remove the nerve from a tooth and replace it with filling material. It’s most often used to treat teeth infected or damaged by decay. The procedure can save an affected tooth from complete extraction. The procedure typically takes one to three visits to complete.

Root Canal Therapy

What Is Root Canal Treatment Used For?

Root canal therapy treats an inner tooth infection or a diseased or damaged nerve. The procedure removes the infected pulp, cleans and shapes the root canal, and seals it. A root canal can be effectively treated with minimally invasive procedures that allow you to avoid tooth extraction.

What Are the Benefits of Root Canal?

Root canal has many benefits. It saves teeth that might otherwise have to be extracted. It prevents the spread of infection, relieves pain, and prevents the recurrence of pain.

The best time to treat a root canal is soon after infection occurs in the tooth so that the inflammation can be controlled and damage limited by closing off all three parts of the tooth (root, nerve chamber, and pulp chamber).

Who Is the Best Candidate for Root Canal Treatment?

You may be a great candidate for root canal treatment if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • A toothache or throbbing pain in your jaw
  • Repeated tooth decay
  • Recurrent canker sores in your mouth (a sign of a weakened immune system)
  • Pain that radiates to other parts of the body, such as your face or neck

Why Should You Get Root Canal Therapy?

It is a safe and effective treatment regardless of your dental history. It helps relieves pain and prevents future infections from occurring. If you are experiencing tooth pain and swelling, contact your dentist immediately.
