About Endodontics (Root Canal Therapy)
The pulp in the hollow space of your tooth contains soft tissue—the dental pulp—that may become a cause for concern for you. Frequent dental procedures, trauma, decay, or cracking often result in infections, inflammation, and irritation in this pulp.
When this nutrient-providing part of the gum—the root canal—is affected, you require a root canal treatment. At our Santa Clarita clinic, we offer safe, effective root canal therapy to prevent damage to your tooth or, even worse, tooth loss.
Some signs you should seek professional dental care for a root canal are:
- Tender and swollen gums
- Pain while biting or chewing
- Cracking or chipping teeth
- Extreme sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
- Deep decay or gums that are darkening
How Root Canal Therapy Can Benefit You
This reparative treatment is aimed at protecting your oral health and saving you from the loss of a tooth—which can happen because the infected root canal cuts off the nutrient supply. Our root canal treatment is relatively painless and, depending on the extent of damage, can be completed in a few sessions.
At Copperhill Smiles, we’re committed to helping you regain your tooth’s natural appearance and functionality. After the treatment, you’ll be able to enjoy the same chewing, biting, and other sensations that you once used to.
Early detection and treatment of the root canal allow you to retain your teeth without the risk of losing the natural appearance of your smile.
