Your root canal dentists on the Central Coast. Learn more about our comfortable, gentle service.
It’s a common misconception that root canal treatment is painful and complex. In fact, our root canal specialists on the Central Coast can provide gentle root canal treatment that will have you flashing your pearly whites again in no time.
What is root canal treatment?
Bacteria can penetrate damaged or decaying teeth and reach the central pulp of the tooth. If infection occurs in the nerves and blood vessels and spreads into the root canals of the tooth, you may require root canal treatment to heal the infection and repair the tooth.
How do I know if I need root canal treatment?
Pain in the tooth while biting or chewing is a sign that your tooth may be infected. Sensitivity to cold or hot foods and beverages can be an early sign of pulp infection. A root canal infection may also cause swollen, red or tender gum tissue surrounding the affected tooth and a pimple may be present on the gum tissue.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s best to seek advice from one of our root canal specialists at our Advance Family Dental practice in Lake Haven on the Central Coast.
