Root Canal Treatment
Pacific Dental Group, located in North Hollywood and Montebello, provide their new and existing patients with a state-of-the-art facility where treatment is performed by a knowledgeable and professional staff. Our staff is experienced in providing endodontic treatments such as root canal therapy.
Root canals are necessary when the nerve inside the tooth is infected. If left untreated, the infection spreads and the tooth will die, which would then need to be removed. To restore the tooth and avoid an extraction, you’ll need a root canal. The procedure entails the removal of the infected nerve, cleaning the tooth of any infected pulp, and filling it with an antibiotic substance. Later, the tooth will be covered with a dental crown.
Some patient’s fear root canals because they believe it’s painful when in reality, it’s not! Today, root canals are done with the most advanced techniques, tools, and anesthetics. Our dentists at Pacific Dental Group are dedicated to making your experience a comfortable and pleasant one.
When the procedure is completed, your tooth may be a little sensitive due to the inflammation from the infection. The sensitivity can be treated with an over-the-counter pain medication such as ibuprofen.
