Do you have a tooth that is painful when you eat something that is hot or cold? Or, do you have a tooth that is painful on a continuous basis and the gums are red and swollen? In either case, you may have an infected tooth that needs a root canal treatment. If you are looking for a dentist who can thoroughly diagnose your tooth situation, and provide you with expert care to save your tooth and stop the tooth pain, you will want to come into our practice for diagnosis and possible Tarzana root canal therapy.
At our practice, All Smiles Family Dentistry, patients of all ages are able to have a wide variety of dental treatments. If a patient is diagnosed as needing Tarzana root canal therapy, we are able to expertly provide this service for them. Root canal therapy is performed in order to save the life of the tooth. When a tooth is infected, or decay has reached the inside of the tooth, root canal therapy will need to be performed in order to save the tooth. If this tooth is not treated, it will need to be extracted or it will simply fall out on its own. Failing to have an infected tooth treated is very dangerous because infection can spread throughout your mouth and begin to affect other teeth. Infection in the mouth can also travel through your bloodstream and reach other parts of your body. For all these reasons, you will want to make sure that you visit our dentist for diagnosis, and to determine whether or not you indeed need a Tarzana root canal. If you do need this treatment, you can rest assured that it will be carried out in an expert and state-of-the-art treatment manner, and that you will remain totally pain-free during the entire procedure.
During a Tarzana root canal, all infected or damaged pulp will be removed from the center of the tooth. The tooth and root canal system will be thoroughly cleaned and sealed to keep any bacteria from again being able to reach the center of the tooth. Root canal procedures are effective in saving over 90% of the teeth that receive this treatment. After our dentist has had a chance to meet with you, he will be able to let you know how effective root canal therapy should be in your particular situation.
