Getting To The Root of The Problem

Severe cases of tooth decay can lead to the need for our quality endodontics in Long Beach

Root canal therapy, otherwise known as endodontics, can provide an immediate solution to the painful problems of extensive tooth decay, which can develop without proper oral hygiene practice and routine dental cleanings. The buildup of plaque along the surface of teeth can become home to massive amounts of harmful bacteria that love to feed on the sugars found within so many common food sources in this day and age. The problem lies in the reaction between the two, as this bacteria begins to feed on the sugar that becomes stuck directly to the surface of our teeth and begins to develop a highly destructive acid that literally eats away at the enamel, slowly breaking it down and decreasing this protective outer layer. Within the center of our teeth is a very soft and nerve-central area of tissue called the pulp, and once the enamel has been breached the bacteria begins to infect this highly sensitive area, leading to pain and eventually infection. The infection can begin to destroy this soft tissue within, causing extreme discomfort and even increasing the risks of further infection in the surrounding gum tissue, leading to more problems such as gum disease. If you are experiencing extreme tooth pain and gum swelling, you may need a root canal in Long Beach. Give us a call to schedule your first appointment today!

The Treatment Process

Obtaining a root canal in Long Beach can eliminate pain and save the tooth

Endodontics can often cause patients to flinch in fear of extensive drilling and a painful treatment process, however modern advancements have allowed this procedure to become quite simple, resembling a routine dental filling, and allowing for regained use almost immediately following your visit. Once our dentist has determined the need for a root canal during a general exam process, treatment can be scheduled immediately thereafter. First the affected area will be gently numbed to allow for increased comfort during the process, this leaves the remaining portion of treatment almost entirely undetectable. The dentist will then begin to remove and sanitize the infected area within your tooth, allowing it to be refilled with a durable material that can be customized to resemble your original tooth in color and texture. In some more severe cases where a large portion of the tooth had to be removed, we may finalize the procedure with a dental crown or tooth cap, creating additional support with a final cosmetic touch that leaves your smile looking beautiful. The end result leaves patients with a healthy smile and a painless tooth that can be used just as it was in its healthiest condition. If you are facing the reality of severe tooth decay and painful sensations, endodontics in Long Beach can potentially save your tooth.

"Maintaining Oral Care After Treatment Is Vital"

We can help get your smile back on track after receiving a root canal in Long Beach

"Caring for your tooth after root canal therapy is fairly simple, and in most cases is very similar to how you would care for your own natural teeth. Taking steps to ensure proper oral hygiene from home is essential in maintaining healthy gums and teeth by eliminating plaque and food debris that may be stuck on or in between surface areas. Always be sure to brush and floss after consuming any meals, and follow up this routine with regular professional dental cleanings no less than once every six months. Take care not to chip, crack, or otherwise damage the treated tooth by avoiding bad habits like biting your nails or chewing on ice and hard candies that may cause harm in the long run. We take great pride in providing the best endodontic treatment in the Long Beach area, so you should be in good condition to continue your regular life by the very next day following this procedure. If you are experiencing severe tooth pain and excessive decay, we are always here to assist you. Give us a call today."
