Root Canal Therapy for Patients of All Ages
Do you need a root canal dentist in Valencia? If so, you may have noticed continuous pain and sensitivity in the affected tooth that came on suddenly. You may also suffer from temperature sensitivity or tooth discoloration, although occasionally there are no symptoms and your dentist will prescribe root canal therapy if you have a cracked filling, for example. Left untreated, an infected tooth causes deep decay that requires much more extensive dental treatment, such as extractions and tooth replacements. Fortunately, with proper care, your endodontics-restored tooth will function normally for decades.
What Does a Root Canal Involve?
Once our dentist prescribes endodontics (root canal therapy), you will be given local anesthetic to numb the area, and if you choose, you may be given oral or inhalation sedation to soothe your fear.
First, our dentist will create a small opening in the decayed tooth using a dental drill. Next, tiny instruments are used to clean the nerve chambers inside the teeth, which are then sealed off with a special material. Once your root canal treatment is complete, you will need to be fitted for a porcelain crown that covers the existing tooth. This color-matched crown will look, feel, and function just as a natural tooth, and will prevent the remaining tooth from becoming brittle over time.
