Root Canal Doctor Los Angeles
Our Los Angeles root canal doctor saves teeth from extraction by treating their inner pulp. When this pulp is infected or damaged by physical trauma, a variety of problems can emerge, including extreme pain, nerve damage, infections and abscesses. A root canal is one of a few solutions to this situation. Not only does root canal therapy prevent problems linked to missing teeth, but it also lets patients avoid tooth replacement options that can be more costly.
Patients enjoy several advantages when they receive root canal therapy from our root canal doctor in Los Angeles. Immediately, patients are relieved of the pain that often accompanies pulp infections. In the long term, patients avoid tooth shifting and jaw bone loss that can result from missing teeth. By protecting treated teeth with medicated packing material and attaching a filling or crown, our doctor helps patients avoid future endodontic problems in those teeth.
