Traditionally, you would need to have your teeth pulled if there was a severe infection or inflammation of the dental pulp. With root canal treatment, such teeth can be saved. Thus, the endodontic procedure helps keep your natural tooth in place. This is beneficial for retaining the natural shape of your face and preventing any sagging due to tooth loss.
Your restored tooth will look natural, as our dentist will place a tooth-colored filling or crown to restore its aesthetics and functionality. We can create crowns that exactly match the shade of the surrounding teeth. If you have had a root canal in the past, it may be a good idea to update its crown with the modern version for enhanced appearance.
Once your root canal treatment is complete and we have placed the filling or crown, you can eat and drink like normal. The infection will be gone and your tooth will become stronger while functioning just like any other natural tooth. You will be able to bite down or chew with normal force while maintaining normal activities.
We provide safe and effective root canal treatment that helps relieve tooth pain while saving your tooth. When you choose us, you can rest easy in the knowledge that the procedure takes only a little more than getting your tooth filling. We complete hundreds of these procedures every month. Dr. Ma knows what it takes to relieve pain and restore your tooth’s health.
