You don’t have to be nervous about root canal therapy, because at Southwell Dental, you can count on the use of modern techniques and state-of-the-art equipment for a comfortable experience and a successful outcome. Most of our patients report very little or no pain at all when having the procedure done.
Damage or infection of the pulp inside your tooth is what necessitates our Camarillo root canal. The pulp is at the base, right next to the nerve. When your tooth is intact, there is no worry about bacteria getting inside. But if you sustain a cavity, especially a large one, an old filling becomes loose or falls out, or a chip or crack affects the tooth, bacteria has a way to get inside. The result is typically pain, and that pain may range from mild to excruciating. It is most usually noticeable when you chew food or you apply pressure to the tooth. Sensitivity to hot and cold items is also frequently experienced. Other possible symptoms that may lead to our Camarillo root canal are gum tenderness and tooth discoloration. You can be assured that full numbing of the local area is taken care of prior to the procedure being started. This makes certain that you have maximum comfort. Our dentist will gain access to the pulp and nerve, remove them, and then clean, disinfect, and seal the canals. The entire process may take more than one session. A temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth between visits. When the tooth heals completely, you will get a permanent crown to restore the tooth to its full size.
Don’t wait when you have any of the symptoms listed above. Call us immediately to schedule an appointment to have an examination and x-rays. If necessary, our Camarillo root canal will be performed.
