Root Canal Torrance
A root canal treatment saves the tooth from further damage and tooth decay. When treatment is not received, the tooth will expire and extraction will be needed. It is more cost effective to treat the infected tooth instead of removing it. Removal may lead to additional problems for surrounding teeth like shifting or can interfere with bite positioning and eating. A successful root canal treatment may need to be applied in the future due to a new infection.
Reasons for Root Canal Treatment:
• Tooth Abscess
• Hot or Cold Temperature Sensitivity
• Severe Toothaches
• Swollen or Tender Gum
• Tooth Decay in Tooth Pulp
• Infection on the Tooth Surface or Inside
• Oral Injury or Tooth Trauma

After the tooth is cleaned, a temporary filling will seal the tooth from exposure. The next dental visit will fill and seal the root of the tooth with medicinal material. A permanent filing will be placed over the tooth to permanently seal the top from exposure and provide protection from damage. It is common to place a crafted dental crown over the filling for additional protection and stability to allow the tooth to function as normal.
