If a tooth suffers from severe injury or decay that is not treated, the damage may reach into the inner portion of the tooth, which contains the tooth nerves, dental pulp, blood vessels, and other tissues. This may result in damage and infection in the inner tissues of the tooth. Tooth infection often causes severe tooth pain, intense tooth sensitivity, and tenderness in the nearby gums. In order to relieve these painful symptoms and restore the health of the tooth, we may recommend root canal therapy.

Root canal therapy is an endodontic treatment that involves removing the infected tissues from the tooth. We then sanitize the tooth, reshape the root canal system, and fill the tooth with a medicated material. Our dentist will also cap the tooth with a restoration, usually a dental crown, to restore the tooth’s structure and functionality. In most cases, Dr. Francisco Kim can complete your root canal therapy in just one or two visits to our office. We work hard to ensure your root canal in Anaheim, California, is as comfortable and painless as possible. To learn more about root canal therapy, and to set up your next appointment at Artistry Dental, we welcome you to call or visit us today. We are eager to improve your oral health.
