Root Canal Treatment in Santa Rosa – Sai Dental
If you have been experiencing persistent tooth pain, especially if the pain fluctuates throughout the day, or gets worse when you bite down, you may need root canal treatment. At Sai Dental in Santa Rosa
, we provide root canal treatment to restore your tooth to health and function, and relieve you of pain.
Signs and Symptoms of Tooth Infections: Do You Need a Root Canal?
When pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to advanced decay, repeated dental procedures on a tooth, or a crack or chip that allows bacteria to enter the tooth, root canal treatment may be necessary. Other signs you may need a root canal include:
- An abscess (or pimple) on the gums
- Toothache or pain
- Swelling and tenderness
- Sensitivity to temperature
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to schedule an appointment with our Santa Rosa dentists to ensure that your smile is as healthy as possible and free of discomfort.
What is Root Canal Treatment?
Endodontic treatment focuses on the removal of decayed or infected pulp. Teeth are healthy if their internal structures, such as nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, are too. If there is decay, infection, or inflamed dental pulp, root canal treatment is necessary to restore the health of your tooth. At Sai Dental we do our best to save your tooth and avoid extraction, as removing a tooth can cause bone erosion and lack of support for a healthy jaw.
Root Canal Treatment at Sai Dental in Santa Rosa
Dr. Sharma and Vinay provide treatments for infected, inflamed teeth. Our root canal treatments are completed with your comfort and health in mind. We walk you through the process step-by-step and answer any questions you may have.
Our Santa Rosa dentist begins by removing damaged tooth pulp through the top of the tooth. We then clean root systems to ensure effective removal and treatment of the infection, dead nerve tissue, and bacteria. Once the tooth is stringently cleaned, we fill your tooth with a special material and seal the apex of the tooth with tooth-colored composite. We place a custom crown on top, so the treated tooth is protected from further fracture and infection. At Sai Dental, we offer root canal treatment and aesthetically pleasing restorations to eliminate pain, remove decay, and restore the health of your tooth.
