Dental Root Canal Treatment El Cajon CA

Dental Root Canal Dentist
A Root Canal Can Save a Tooth

When a tooth was very infected or damaged and could not be restored with a filling, extraction used to be the method of correcting the problem. Today, a tooth that has this same problem can be saved with a root canal. The doctors are well-trained and experienced in the most advanced root canal therapy. In the procedure, the pulp chamber of the tooth is removed and a filling material replaces the pulp. When root canals were first performed, they were painful and many patients would avoid this procedure. But with today’s anesthetics and technology, a root canal is often painless and will save the tooth.

Top Dental Symptoms: Toothache

If your mouth or jaw hurt, it could be from a toothache. Toothaches usually indicate a cavity but they can also signal gum disease. In some cases, a toothache is a sign of an abscess or impacted tooth. A toothache should be evaluated by a dentist right away to determine the cause of the problem and prevent the tooth from dying.
