Root Canals(Endodontics) in Los Angeles
Root canal treatment is an often straightforward procedure to relieve dental pain and save your teeth. Patients typically need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth. During root canal treatment, an endodontist who specializes in such treatment carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, disinfects and shapes the root canals, and places a filling to seal the space
Baby root canals (Pulpatomy)
A pulpotomy is a fairly common procedure for decayed baby molars. When a baby tooth has a bad cavity, the pulp (nerve and tissue) of the tooth is exposed. This can be very painful, because the sensitive nerves and tissue are vulnerable. If your child is complaining of a toothache, it might be because he has a large cavity. In this case, we’ll need to do a pulpotomy to remove the damaged pulp. Sometimes, your child doesn’t have any pain, but if the cavity is near the pulp chamber, then it could be exposed during the cavity removal.
