Root Canal Treatment


 

When the inner pulp chamber of the tooth has been compromised, either from decay or injury, our dentist, Dr. Jai Kakanar, and his experienced team will likely suggest a root canal treatment to help your tooth heal and stop the flow of possible infection from hurting other parts of the mouth. If you are experiencing a toothache, or generally want to check if you need a root canal treatment in Burbank, California, please call Jai R. Kakanar, DDS today at 818-241-7544 to learn more about how we can help you.

Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction. To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.

Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools and anesthesia. Our dentist and entire team work hard to provide you with a pleasant and comfortable experience each time you visit our office. To learn more about root canal treatment, we welcome you to contact us today. We are committed to restoring your smile’s health.
