Root Canal Therapy


 

If dental pulp becomes infected and is left untreated, the afflicted tooth could die. Because our dentists at Northridge Dental Group are devoted to protecting your smile, we may suggest root canal therapy. If a root canal does become a necessity, Drs. Arami, Ariz, Rezvani, Separzadeh, and Vaziri will do everything possible to keep you comfortable. We invite you to contact us if you have any questions about how we can treat an infected root canal in Northridge, California.

Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction. To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.

Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, and anesthesia. Our dentist, along with our entire dental team, works hard to provide you with a pleasant, comfortable experience each time you visit our office. To learn more about root canal treatment, we welcome you to contact us today. We are committed to restoring your smile’s health.
