If you experience persistent toothache, a pain when biting down or an ache that worsens over time, it’s important to seek immediate attention from your dental professional. Root canal treatment, when required, is a highly effective way to resolve the pain and discomfort of a toothache from decay or dental injury, and to save a damaged or infected tooth from extraction. At the office of Dr. Philip Farzad, patients receive precise and gentle Encino root canal therapy using state-of-the-art technology and treatment methods.
Inside every tooth is a central chamber that contains connective tissue, a nerve supply, and blood vessels. These core tissues, known as the dental pulp, help your tooth to grow and mature before it emerges into the mouth. When a tooth has deep decay, or has been fractured in an accident, bacteria can seep in, damaging the dental pulp. If left untreated an infection can develop in the tooth and can cause severe pain, fever and swelling. A root canal can effectively treat a tooth that’s been severely compromised by decay or injury and help preserve it in the dental arch, to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. Once root canal therapy has been completed, the tooth should be fully restored as recommended. With a 95% rate of success, Encino root canal therapy is a highly effective treatment, and a tooth that has had a root canal can remain healthy and functional throughout your life.
