What is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal treatments are performed to remove infected areas of the soft, inner section of the tooth, also known as the pulp. Infections in this area can cause significant pain, and if left untreated treated, could cause the whole tooth to begin to die. A root canal can save the tooth, allowing for proper healing and even further strengthening of the tooth!
During your root canal treatment, Dr. Karimi will remove decay from the tooth, then enter the canal to remove infected tissue and apply an antimicrobial medication to clear the infection. Next, he will fill the canal with a rubber-like putty and build up your tooth structure with a dental filling.
After the infection has been treated, the tooth is topped off with a natural-looking dental crown. Karimi Dental provides luminous, custom-crafted crowns that are designed to naturally blend in with the rest of your smile.
What are the Benefits of Root Canal Therapy?
Dangerous infections at the root of your tooth can lead to health consequences like missing teeth, shifting teeth, and even bone loss. Root canal therapy allows your dentist to remove decay and clear dangerous infections, allowing you to preserve your natural teeth.
At Karimi Dental, we never want procedures like root canal therapy to be scary or uncomfortable. Modern advancements in dental education, tools, and technologies have allowed root canals to become more comfortable and less invasive for each patient. For those who suffer from dental anxiety or just need extra help staying relaxed in the dentist's chair, we offer sedation dentistry services to promote relaxation throughout your procedure. `
Do I Need A Root Canal?
If you are experiencing the following symptoms, our team will use advanced diagnostic tools to determine if root canal therapy is the right treatment route for you:
- Swollen, tender gums
- Pain and tooth sensitivity
- Gum abscess
- Sharp pain when chewing or biting down
These signs can indicate that decay has reached the pulp of your tooth, resulting in infection or an abscess at the root of the tooth.
