Root Canal Treatment in Woodland CA
When a tooth is so badly infected or damaged that the nerve is threatened, it may be time for root canal therapy. If left untreated, the tooth can develop an infection that leads to swelling, pain, and potential serious full body infection. Contrary to popular belief, a root canal is not an excruciating experience. At Advanced Dentistry of Woodland, our dentists always carefully use advanced techniques, tools, and proper anesthetic administration to keep you comfortable throughout the process.
During a root canal, the infected and painful tissue is cleaned from the affected tooth. This procedure removes damaged structures as well as infection. Next, your dentist will add a buildup and crown to your tooth to provide protection and restore the tooth. So, root canals actually stop painful toothaches and allow you to preserve your tooth.
If you are suffering from dental pain, oral pus, abscesses, or other signs of infection, please call us right away at (530) 666-2117.
