San Francisco Dentist Helps Patients Regain Oral Health With Root Canal Therapy

by | Date Published:

The marvels of modern dentistry allow our San Francisco dental team to save teeth that, years ago, would have been lost to damage or infection. One of the indispensable treatments that allows us to deliver these results is root canal therapy.

We know! Root canal treatment can sound scary and intimidating. But we are here to tell you that this dental option is simpler and more comfortable than ever before. More importantly, this treatment can literally be smile saving.

Imagine that you have a tooth that is so damaged that the inner core of the tooth is compromised. This means that the dental pulp, nerves, and tooth roots, are infected or exposed. First of all, this is likely to be very painful for you. Second of all, the problems plaguing your damaged tooth can spread and put the rest of your smile at risk.

The scene is set for root canal therapy!

Root canal treatment allows our dentist to actually go into your tooth, and clear out all of the compromised inner material. That’s right: we completely get rid of your dental pulp, nerves, and tooth roots. Essentially, we are eliminating all of the “living” parts of your tooth. What is left is the healthy dental structure that was surrounding the dental pulp.

In the final stages of treatment, we clean the remaining tooth structure, and then restore the tooth with a filling or crown. At the end of the treatment process you have a stable and sturdy tooth that looks natural and attractive.

As you would imagine, undergoing roto canal therapy is much less involved and less expensive than trying to replace a tooth that has been lost to infection or damage. So, if your dentist recommends root canal, please don’t panic! You have been presented with an excellent opportunity to fortify your smile and avoid premature tooth loss.
