The Root Canal Process: No More Pain
Endodontics in Bellflower can take away your pain in no time
At Bellflower Dental Group, we know that hearing you need a root canal can be a little unsettling, especially if you have not experienced a dental procedure before. The best thing to remember when preparing for this procedure is that its purpose is to get you out of pain, rather than causing it. To help ease your mind, we thought it would be helpful to give you some of the details of the root canal process. Root canals, or endodontic treatment, are used whenever the pulp of a tooth becomes infected from tooth decay. The pulp of your teeth is where you will find the nerves. When the pulp becomes infected, a root canal is used to clean out the infected area and replace it. The purpose of endodontics in Bellflower is to save your tooth, and we will always try to save your tooth before suggesting a tooth extraction. If you do receive root canal treatment, it is likely you may need another procedure such as a dental crown or other restoration to keep the tooth safe. Schedule your consultation and examination today for a root canal in Bellflower. The quicker we can get you out of pain, the better!
