Root canal dentistry is done to restore your tooth when it is badly decayed. Find out how Dr. F. Edalat and Dr. Kalai can help you overcome root canal problems.
De Soto Dental Practice is a trusted and reliable Canoga Park dental care providing best quality root canal to patients in Canoga Park, CA.
When the pulp and the soft tissues inside your tooth become infected or inflamed, the only way to restore the tooth is through root canal treatment (endodontic treatment). If the infected tooth pulp’s cavity is left untreated, the infection can cause swelling that spread to other areas of face, neck, and head. Infection can also lead to bone loss around the tip of the root.
The tooth’s nerve and pulp tissues can be damaged or become inflated due to deep decay, cracked or chipped tooth, repeated dental procedures and trauma to the face.
A root canal is a treatment procedure that is performed by an endodontist (root canal dentist) to save a tooth that is severely decayed or becomes infected so that the tooth is restored back to its natural look and function.
After getting a root canal, here’s what you should not do:
Tooth sensitivity - You’re likely to experience your tooth becoming sensitive for the first few days after root canal procedure. This discomfort is normal and can be controlled by over-the-counter pain medications.
Do not chew or bite on the untreated tooth - Try to minimize chewing or biting until the tooth is completely restored. This helps to prevent recontamination of the interior teeth or the fragile tooth from breaking.
Do not stop oral hygiene - Practice regular oral health care such as flossing and brushing your teeth normally. Use antiseptic mouthwash and come for regular checkups.
Root canal treatment helps you save your tooth and maintain a natural healthy smile. After the treatment, you can continue to eat the foods you love, bite and chew with ease.
