It’s certainly not pleasant to deal with the pain that typically accompanies a tooth infection that precedes the need for root canal therapy. But with quick action on your part, we at Chu & Yang Dental are prepared to offer you rapid relief and the restoration of your tooth to full function.
In addition to pain, usually when you chew with the tooth or you apply pressure to it, another common symptom is sensitivity to hot and cold in your foods and beverages. Less common are tooth discoloration and gum tenderness. It is crucial that you seek out attention in the form of our root canal Irvine at the earliest possible opportunity. After a complete examination and x-rays to confirm the diagnosis, the procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The pulp that is infected and the nerve next to it are removed. The canals are then cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. The entire process of our root canal Irvine may take more than one session to complete, especially if there are multiple canals in the tooth. Between visits, the tooth is protected with a temporary crown. And when the procedure is finished, sometime will be allowed for full healing before impressions are taken for the formation of a permanent crown that is cemented to the tooth. The success rate for the procedure is an impressive 90% or so. Further good news can be found in the fact that a tooth having been repaired with root canal will generally be as durable and long-lasting as any other tooth in your mouth.
Prompt care improves the chances of a good outcome. It’s always preferable to have our root canal Irvine rather than to end up getting the tooth extracted. Reach out to our office so that we can make a timely appointment for you to come in.
