A root canal procedure is something that is required when an infection reaches the nerve at the root of your tooth. When it comes to this stage, a patient is probably in a lot of pain and discomfort. If you have unbearable pain in your tooth and you suspect it to be a root infection, visit us at Santa Clarita Advanced Dentistry so our professionals can inspect it and suggest whether or not you need a root canal procedure. Root canal procedures are not as invasive or painful as some people believe it to be. Our professionals are gentle, properly trained, and precise to provide quick and effective solutions that deliver long-lasting results.
Prevents Spreading Of The Infection
If you have any infection in your root, it's important to come in for a root canal procedure so our professionals can clean out the root and take out all the infection. If this is left untreated, the infection will spread to the neighboring teeth and instead of having to deal with one painful tooth, you will have multiple teeth to tend to. Don't let it get so bad. Come to us for timely treatment.
Has A Visually Appealing Result
The result of a root canal procedure is aesthetically appealing and it looks like your natural teeth. Root canal procedures do involve a fair amount of tooth removal so that our professionals can get to the root. After the procedure and once your gum swelling has reduced, you can opt-in for a dental crown with us. These crowns are usually made of the same color material as your tooth and this makes it look aesthetically appealing to the eyes. We do not put alien fixtures in your mouth that make you feel embarrassed to smile. We want you to be confident every time you flash that beautiful smile.
Saves Your Teeth
A root canal is a procedure that needs to be carried out across multiple days. This is an intricate procedure to ensure that all the infection is taken out so that your tooth can be saved. This isn't just about the tooth in question, but also about the neighboring teeth. Following a root canal procedure, not only will you be able to have an infection-free tooth, but you will also be able to protect the rest of your mouth and have optimal oral health.
Prevents Jaw Bone Degeneration
Ignoring an infection in the root eventually results in tooth extraction. Sometimes people ignore getting a root canal procedure done for so long that the tooth falls off. The gap in between your teeth results in jaw degeneration. This not only alters the way you look, but it also affects all the other teeth in your mouth. Do not ignore the health of your mouth, because eventually you will have to pay a hefty price for all those dental appointments you missed.
