Endodontic therapy is often the best solution for troublesome tooth infections. Without professional intervention, these infections can cause tooth loss and a host of other health problems. Preserve your full smile with root canal therapy from Fair Oaks Family Dental. We perform root canals in Pasadena and utilize the services of an in-house specialist for complex cases.
Prompt treatment is the key to saving infected teeth. Watch for any of the following symptoms, as they may indicate a tooth infection:
- Sensitivity to hot and cold
- An abscess on the gums
- Severe tooth pain
- Swelling, tenderness, or bleeding
- Injury or trauma to the tooth
While dental enamel is resilient, accidental damage occurs, and in certain cases, bacteria can enter the delicate inner chamber of teeth, infecting pulp tissue. Without proactive treatment, patients can face more serious dental issues, including tooth sensitivity and abscess.
During endodontic treatment, our Pasadena dentists use specialized tools to create a small opening into the tooth and remove the damaged tissue. The inner pulp chamber is then thoroughly cleaned, sterilized, and filled with a biocompatible material. Once the tooth has properly healed, patients return to receive their final restoration.
