Root Canal Treatment in North Hollywood, CA
Who needs a root canal?
When a tooth becomes infected, it becomes critical to treat it immediately. Otherwise, the infection can spread to the dental pulp while also causing serious pain. The dental pulp contains sensitive areas like nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels. Fortunately, here at our clinic, individuals suffering from a tooth infection can receive a quick and pain-free root canal procedure. Our dentists are prepared to provide relief quickly, safely, and effectively so that you can go on with your day-to-day life as soon as possible.
How does the treatment work?
To finish the root canal, we will fill the hole and the empty area where the dental pulp used to be with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. This helps to stabilize the tooth after a part has been removed. Next, the dentist will use a filling or crown to further strengthen and protect the damaged tooth. Both of these options can be made in tooth color, so they can be used on any infected tooth and blend in with the surrounding teeth.
