Why Would I Need Root Canal Therapy?

Endodontics in Oxnard is a dental treatment for saving an abscessed tooth

Underneath the hard outer layer of your tooth is a soft center full of nerves and blood vessels. The outer layer is created to protect the nerves and blood vessels, which run through tunnels called canals through the root of your tooth down to the gums. When bacteria and tooth decay breaks through the hard outer layers of your teeth, the inner layer becomes infected, which is where a root canal in Oxnard is needed. This creates a condition called an abscessed tooth. In order to prevent the spread of the infection to your gums or the rest of your mouth, a root canal must be performed unless the tooth cannot be saved. If a tooth can be saved, then endodontics in Oxnard is the best choice because it removes the infected part of your tooth allowing you to keep part of your natural tooth. If you are experiencing tooth pain and think you may need a root canal in Oxnard, give us a call 24/7 at (805) 988-2250 to schedule your appointment with us at Esthetic Smiles.

Everything About the Root Canal Procedure

Getting a root canal in Oxnard is a simple procedure at Esthetic Smiles

Endodontics in Oxnard, or root canal therapy, is really not much more complicated than getting a filling. Some procedures are done right in your dentist's office. A specialist dentist called an endodontist handles other procedures. First your Oxnard dentist will numb the area with an anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the procedure. Then your dentist will create an opening in the top of the affected tooth with special tools, and remove all the soft tissue from the middle of the tooth and canals down through the roots. The empty spaces left are filled with a substance that disinfects the area and acts as filler. Your dentist may permanently seal the tooth immediately after the root canal, or may wait one week to make sure the infection has been eliminated completely. In most cases where a tooth needed a root canal in Oxnard, the visible part of the tooth above the gum line also has extensive damage. In this case, to completely restore the look and function of the tooth, your dentist will probably shape the tooth and fit it with an artificial cap, called a dental crown.

"Caring For Yourself After a Root Canal"

Endodontics in Oxnard require special treatment after your procedure

"After I perform your root canal procedure, I will inform you of the necessary precautions you need to take to ensure safety from further infection. Usually I will prescribe you antibiotic medication to keep the area from becoming infected while healing and spreading to other areas within your mouth. I will also prescribe a medication for the pain as the area around your tooth and the nerves will be sore for a few days. I will also ask for you to schedule a follow up visit to make sure the infection is completely gone and your tooth is healing properly."
