Root Canal Therapy Van Nuys, CA
SINAI DENTAL provides simple and complex root canal therapy in Van Nuys, CA. Our team is committed to relieving your pain and restoring your oral health. Trauma and decay can expose inner tooth structures, leaving them open for infection. Proper treatment can reverse this damage and protect against further decay.
What is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy begins with the application of local anesthetics, numbing the area and relieving discomfort. Then we remove a small portion of enamel from the top of the tooth, allowing access to the dental canals. With specialized tools, we clean out any decayed tissue and sanitize the canals with cleansing fluid. After the tooth is completely free of decay, the canals will be filled with a biocompatible material called gutta percha, then sealed off with a temporary restoration. This temporary replaced later with a customized prosthetic specifically designed to enhance your smile.
Who Needs Root Canal Therapy?
Infection typically develops if a cavity grows large enough to reach the pulp of the tooth where the nerve endings reside. This infection causes pain and can spread to adjacent teeth and gums. A broken or dislodged tooth is an emergency, and you should get treatment quickly. Getting to our Van Nuys dental office as soon as possible improves the chances of saving the tooth.
Root Canal Therapy Saves Teeth
Whether your tooth and its pulp have been damaged by injury, decay, or infection, the only way to avoid having it extracted is with root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is designed to rebuild the natural tooth, renew its strength, and relieve pain. Sometimes this treatment is impossible, and extraction is the only solution. In these cases, we recommend dental implants for complete, root-to-crown replacement.
