What happens during root canal therapy?
Also known as endodontic treatment, root canal therapy repairs the tissues on the “root canal,” or the area surrounding the root of your tooth. The process requires a skilled and experienced dentist like Dr. Khan. The doctor will first assess the condition of the tooth nerve before thoroughly cleaning the area. Dr. Khan will make an incision on the tooth and then bacteria, decayed matter, nerve tissue and organic debris will be removed. Dr. Khan will then fill it permanently to keep the tooth strong. Many root canals are followed by the placement of a custom-made crown to add strength. Dr. Khan has performed many root canal treatments in Sacramento, CA and the results are remarkable.
For the whole process to be virtually painless, Dr. Khan uses anesthesia to numb the tooth and gums of pain. This is perfectly safe and is used by dentists all over the world. If root canal therapy is not performed in a timely manner on a tooth that needs it, there is a great probability that the tooth will need to be extracted sometime in the future. If your tooth is causing pain and swelling, visit us right away so we can still help save your tooth and give it strength for years. We perform root canal therapy on both adults and children.
