Root Canal Treatment

In certain situations where the inner portion of a tooth has become damaged by infection or decay, root canal treatment might be the best possible method for saving the injured tooth. The process involves removing the harmful material present inside the tooth and replacing it with a special filling material that is designed to restore its function and structure.

A root canal infection occurs when bacteria spreads to the inner portions of a tooth or when the pulp of a tooth begins to experience decay. Certain symptoms might suggest that a patient is experiencing a root canal infection. These symptoms include:

  • Intense toothache
  • Sensitivity to temperature
  • Tenderness and swelling of the gum
  • Abscess on the gums

Our dental care specialists do everything possible to make sure that the patient is kept comfortable during root canal treatment. We start by numbing the area with a local anesthetic that is designed to greatly reduce pain. Using a rubber sheet, we keep the tooth dry, while also preventing the infection from spreading. Once the patient is ready, we access the inner portions of the tooth to remove any infected pulp and damaged nerve tissue that is present. Then we thoroughly clean out the tooth and carefully seal it with special filling material. The process is completed by placing a temporary crown over its surface to maintain its structure. A permanent crown will be applied during a follow-up visit.

Our Happy Patients

"I shopped implants for my missing two teeth for a while, and can't afford other offices' quotes. One my relative, who is a patient of Cozy Family, recommended Dr. Li to me. The price is affordable. A few months ago I got the implant placement, and last week I did the restorations. Done! Love my new teeth! Highly recommended! It's worth me driving 70 miles to the office."
