Save Your Tooth With Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a common procedure used to save teeth damaged by infection, decay, or trauma. Also known as endodontic treatment or endodontic therapy, this procedure is designed to save a tooth from extraction. It is the last treatment that can be used to do so. Not all dentists provide root canal therapy, so it is essential to work with a dentist that provides not only general and restorative dental procedures but also procedures designed to save the smile from extensive dental work. Dr. Ali Soltanirad (Dr. Rad) of Dos Caminos Dental, Camarillo, California, can help with root canal treatment for new and returning patients.
What Can I Expect From Root Canal Therapy?
The process involves removing the infected tissue from inside the tooth root and cleaning the inside of your tooth. Once this has been done, the root canals are filled with a special material to prevent further damage or infection. Afterward, your dentist will either place a crown over the top of your tooth to cover it or use an adhesive material to rebuild it. You can expect your saved tooth to remain healthy for many years with proper care and maintenance after treatment!
How Do I Ensure My Tooth Heals Properly Following Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy can be effective if you take the necessary steps to ensure your tooth heals properly following treatment. Dr. Ali Soltanirad (Dr. Rad) will provide you with specific instructions for proper care, including a list of foods and activities to avoid during the healing period. Additionally, you will want to follow up with regular professional dental cleanings and exams to help maintain your oral health afterward. Doing so will ensure that your saved tooth remains healthy and strong for many years while protecting your smile from tooth decay and disease.
