What Is A Root Canal?
A root canal procedure involves our dentist professionally removing infected or decayed tissue from your tooth. This procedure can be critical for preserving your oral health, and in most cases will spare your tooth from removal. Our office offers several sedation options to make sure you are comfortable during your visit. We are proud to offer one of the gentlest and quickest root canal procedures, by using the most advanced technology, equipment and techniques.
Benefits of A Root Canal
- Relieves any pain, swelling or sensitivity to hot and cold you may be experiencing
- Preserves your tooth and saves it from invasive tooth extraction
- Saves you from extra time and money for future dental work to replace an extracted tooth
What Is Involved In a Root Canal Treatment?
Your initial consultation will include an x-ray and examination. Dr. Omid Barkhordar will then determine the level of decay or infection present, and will work with you to choose the best treatment option for your tooth.
During the root canal procedure, our highly experienced Dr. Barkhordar will carefully clean out any decay, bacteria, and infected soft tissue from the root canal site. The area will then be sealed to keep out any bacteria and debris using a specialized sealing paste and dental compound. The top of the tooth will be treated with a filling, custom matched to the color of your natural teeth. A dental crown may be fitted if necessary to restore function to the tooth.
