Are you experiencing severe tooth discomfort? You may benefit from root canal therapy in Mountain View, California.
What Is Root Canal Therapy?
As an endodontic treatment, root canal therapy is a specialized dental treatment designed to heal infected or damaged root tissue.
Common symptoms experienced by patients who need root canal therapy include:
- Inflammation and soreness of the gums
- Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
- Sharp or consistent pain
- Difficulty biting or chewing in the affected area
What To Expect
Contrary to popular belief, root canal therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that can be completed in just one dental visit. During treatment, our dentists and team will sterilize the area before creating a small hole to access the affected root tissue. The damaged root will be removed, and a medicated solution will be placed in its stead to reduce swelling, prevent infection and promote proper healing. The tooth will then be sealed with a dental crown.
Our team will monitor the progress of your recovery to ensure the success of the procedure. If you have any questions, we invite you to ask Dr. Galina Nasakin and associates so that you know what to expect during every step of the process.
