Save Natural Teeth with Root Canal Treatment

Your smile is one of your most valuable assets. Losing one or several teeth due to severe decay or accidental injury can devastate your smile and put your oral health at risk. Through root canal treatment, a skilled endodontist from Teran Dentistry Center can help restore severely damaged teeth to save them from extraction. Saving natural teeth not only preserves your smile, it saves you the time, expense, and trouble of undergoing restorative dentistry to replace these teeth in the future.

What You Should Know About Root Canal Procedures

Endodontists are dental specialists trained to diagnose and treat complex dental issues like tooth abscesses or severe tooth injuries that could lead to losing natural teeth. Root canals are often the treatment of choice for repairing severely damaged teeth to save them from extraction.

Root canals entail drilling a hole in severely decayed teeth to cleanse and disinfect the pulp and root canals of harmful bacteria that are destroying the teeth from within. Once cleansed, your endodontist in Los Algodones will shape the canals, fill them with a special material called gutta-percha and seal the teeth to protect them from further infection. A tooth-colored crown or cap is then placed over the treated tooth to strengthen it and restore its usefulness. Root canals are performed under local anesthesia so you feel no pain or discomfort during your treatment.

Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

Root canals help restore a tooth’s appearance, health, and usefulness to save it from extraction. Restoring natural teeth will preserve your smile, oral health, and your ability to bite and chew. With proper care, a tooth that’s undergone root canal treatment can last 20 years or longer, saving you the expense of having it replaced with an artificial tooth.
