Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment Encino, CA

This procedure become necessary, when either the decay has reached the nerve tissue (pulp), or a trauma to the tooth has danged your nerve beyond its capability to recover. We numb the area, clean out the existing damage, clean out the inside of your root(s) – hence the name, and after disinfecting and drying it thoroughly, we seal the canals with a material that is visible on the x-ray.

Afterwards a post/build-up and a crown are usually placed to protect the remaining tooth from fracturing too easy.
