Root Canal Treatment in Valencia
Serving the Entire Santa Clarita Valley since 2000
When a cavity has progressed to the point where it has reached your tooth’s pulp, you may require root canal treatment. Also known as endodontic therapy or root canal therapy, the words “root canal” often intimidate patients who learn they may have to undergo this treatment. However, Go Dental is here to make the procedure as painless and comfortable as possible for you. Using state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge techniques, we can quickly and efficiently handle your root canal in Valencia.
In our office, we offer our patients The Dental Button. This feature puts the ability in your hands to remotely and safely stop the dental drill. This gives our patients a sense of control, thereby reducing any anxiety and fear they may be feeling. Also, we can thoroughly explain the procedure to you so you can learn exactly what to expect during the process.
Why Get a Root Canal?
Sometimes, trauma, decay, or deep dental restorations may inflict damage on a tooth’s nerve. Once this happens, your tooth’s pulp gets infected, and the infection can extend all the way through the root tip. After it has reached this stage, the infection starts to eat away at the bone around the tooth. Once the pulp becomes infected, it cannot heal on its own, and it needs to be treated immediately. An infected pulp is dangerous for your entire immune system, and it can be overwhelmingly painful.
By undergoing a root canal treatment, you can remove all of the infected pulp and replace it with a dental restoration, such as a crown. This will allow you to live your day-to-day life with no discomfort or pain at all, and it can restore function and aesthetic appeal to your teeth.
Symptoms that indicate your pulp may be infected include:
- General pain and swelling
- A bad taste in your mouth
- Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- Pain when applying pressure or biting
