The Goal of Root Canal Therapy
When the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected, it can cause severe damage if left untreated. Root canal therapy addresses this issue by safely eliminating infected tissue. Dr. Shahinyan has extensive experience performing this procedure and uses the latest techniques to ensure your treatment is a smooth, comfortable experience. Working together, our team takes your individual needs into account and strives to make your visit as stress-free as possible.
Root canals tend to have a negative reputation. However, new developments have improved root canal therapy, resulting in a straightforward treatment that provides much-needed relief from dental pain. We take care to numb the treatment site thoroughly and offer sedation options to help you relax for the duration of the procedure. With this option, your original tooth can be saved, avoiding extraction and potentially costly replacement measures. Ultimately, your dental health is preserved, allowing you to function normally and smile confidently.
The Procedure and Results
At your consultation visit, Dr. Shahinyan performs a thorough examination and takes digital x-rays, along with intraoral photos, before outlining your treatment plan. After the procedure is complete, she protects the treated tooth from exposure to future infection by placing a crown.
Our porcelain crowns are designed with your personal aesthetics in mind. They fit snugly over the formerly-infected tooth and allow you to chew and speak normally after the procedure. At your next routine visit, Dr. Shahinyan will examine the state of your smile, paying special attention both to the treated area and any other sites that could potentially require care.
As your tooth heals from the treatment, it’s important to be as careful as possible when chewing or biting. You should also maintain a steady oral hygiene routine so that you can safeguard your teeth from infection in the future. This includes brushing twice daily and flossing, as well as keeping routine appointments to receive professional cleaning and ongoing evaluation of your oral health.
