Relieve the Pain With Root Canal Therapy

Patients imagine the worst when dentists recommend root canal therapy. In fact, the bad reputation of root canals comes from a popular misconception that the procedure is invasive and painful.

While traditionally this idea might have been true, now modern technology has replaced painful dentistry with minimally invasive advanced root canal procedures that deliver effective results with no pain.

The pain associated with the root canal is not because of the treatment but the bacteria growing inside the teeth and causing infection. Patients who do not regularly visit the dentist for X-rays and check-ups are likely to develop bacteria in places where brushing and flossing cannot reach. Untreated bacteria start an infection or damage the root of the tooth. Trauma or injury can also cause infection in the pulp.

At Encino Dental Health and Cosmetics, we perform root canal therapy to clean the infected nerve tissue and rescue the ailing teeth at a time. Our experienced team of dentists in Encino, California, will use cutting-edge advanced tools to enter the area of infection, disinfect it and seal the canal to prevent it from further damage. 

How Does It Work? 

The root canal refers to the inside of the tooth that consists of pulp and nerves and carries all the nutrients. Sudden injury or bacterial entry can cause infection in the canal. An infected root canal is painful and can cause tooth loss if left untreated.

At Encino Dental Health and Cosmetics, we perform root canal therapy by creating an opening to the canal and removing the infected pulp. We disinfect the area with a dental substance, seal it and cover it with a crown to prevent further damage.

Does it hurt? A root canal is no longer a painful therapy with our advanced sedation methods and minimally invasive tools. We provide a range of sedation methods and distractions to our patients to ensure they are comfortable and relaxed during the procedure.

What Happens if You Avoid
Root Canal? 

If you have an infection in your tooth, delaying the root canal can lead to tooth loss and spread the damage to adjacent teeth. Untreated infection can also spread to your jaw and neck, affecting the whole body. You may even stop feeling pain in the infected tooth, which may indicate that the nerve has died.

So, prevent the infection from progressing by immediately seeking dental care. If you are afraid of pain or bleeding, our dentists at Encino Dental Health and Cosmetics can help relieve your anxiety.
