Root Canal

We can often save your natural tooth if it's badly decayed and/or infected.

An endodontic treatment to eradicate your root canal disease

When your teeth are damaged, the inside of the tooth can become infected. This can then harm the pulp of the tooth, i.e., the blood vessels and nerves inside. If you do nothing about this issue the infection can damage the bone, causing pain and swelling. If this happens to one of your teeth, see Dr. Jalil Babagoli to determine the best endodontic treatment (Root Canal Therapy) to save the tooth.

About Root Canal Therapy

What is a Root Canal?
A Root Canal is a procedure conducted to save one’s natural tooth when a tooth is badly decayed and/or infected. Cracks and decay can cause infection in a tooth, resulting in the need for a root canal. Without a root canal treatment, you may be jeopardizing the tissue around the tooth and cause an abscess.
An endodontic treatment (Root Canal Therapy) may be required to save the tooth. In this case, the doctor will open and remove the damaged pulp and then clean up the inside before putting in a filling and adding a crown.
Who should consider Root Canal Therapy?
Your dentist may recommend that you have this procedure carried out if the pulp within your tooth is infected or inflamed, in which case you would likely be referred to Dr. Jalil Babagoli . 

This type of damage left untreated can result in deep-down tooth decay and long-term damage. If you suffer from gum disease, this can often lead to root canal problems. If you have this swelling and pressure within your tooth, you will most likely be in pain, resulting in infection. If you have been suffering from this type of problem for a long time and the issue has become a chronic one, you are likely to be an excellent candidate for root canal therapy.

No matter what has caused your root canal disease (pulpal disease), endodontic treatment is likely to be required to save your tooth and relieve you of your pain and discomfort.
What are the benefits of Root Canal Therapy?
Many people panic when they hear the words Root Canal Therapy, but it should not be a painful experience and really no worse than having a standard filling. Saving your tooth using this treatment has plenty of advantages and benefits:
  • Pain and swelling will disappear
  • You will be able to chew normally
  • Biting will no longer result in pain
  • Your tooth will look natural
  • By retaining your natural tooth, rather than having it replaced, your remaining healthy teeth will be protected from additional strain or wear and tear.
