Emergency Root Canal Los Angeles
Root canal is performed when teeth are at risk of needing extraction because of tooth decay or trauma. In many cases, the symptoms that signify the need for root canal emerge suddenly as the pulp inside the tooth becomes infected and inflamed. With prompt root canal treatment, pain is eliminated and the tooth is protected from further problems. Here is more about the services of our expert in emergency root canal in Los Angeles.
When tooth roots become infected, root canal treatment should be sought right away. At the beginning of emergency root canal treatment, our expert in emergency root canal in Los Angeles X-rays the tooth to determine the best treatment plan. Next, our dentist drills into the side of the tooth and scrapes the infected pulp out through the hole. Finally, our Los Angeles emergency root canal dentist fills the space with medicated packing material, seals it in with a barrier and dental filling and protects the tooth with a dental crown.
Los Angeles Emergency Root Canal
Patients should visit our Los Angeles endodontist to determine the need for root canal if they suffer tooth breakage from trauma or severe pain due to decay. In either of these situations, the pulp of the tooth may be affected and place the tooth at risk of extraction. When infection is involved, patients may notice swelling, foul taste and low-level fever in addition to pain.
Patients should never wait when they suspect that they may need root canal treatment. Left untreated, pulp infections can lead to abscess and life-threatening systemic infections as well as increasing pain. With friendly staff and multiple anesthesia options for many patients, our office makes emergency root canal treatment more comfortable in this potentially stressful situation. Patients can contact our Los Angeles emergency root canal expert for more information on emergency root canal treatment and to schedule an appointment.
