When the nerves of your teeth have become decayed or infected, root canal therapy may be necessary to save the teeth and eliminate any pain you may be experiencing.
Root canal therapy involves removing the bacteria, nerves and any other decay or bacteria inside the tooth and replacing that new empty space with a material to solidify the tooth.
Root canal therapy is a recommended alternative to completely removing the decayed or infected teeth altogether. By saving the tooth, this can eliminate future problems and expenses in the future that may involve your bite, jaw and neighboring teeth. To really understand whether you need a root canal dentist in Los Angeles, you should first be examined by our dentist here in our office.
