Root Canals Q & A

Why would I need a root canal?

An infection in your tooth can spread to the dental pulp — the center area of the tooth. The pulp comprises nerve, connective tissues, blood vessels, and the more sensitive areas of the tooth.

If an infection is present in the pulp, you may experience pain and, in most cases, you should visit Del Mar Dentistry Center for a root canal procedure as soon as possible to prevent the spread of infection and save your tooth.

How does a root canal work?

During your root canal procedure, Dr. Eizadi creates a small hole in your tooth and removes your dental pulp. In some cases, she might also need to remove the tooth roots as well. Tooth roots are necessary for growing teeth to allow you to feel hot and cold sensations.

A fully grown and mature tooth doesn’t incur any damage when Dr. Eizadi removes the root, but this part of the procedure can stop the infection from spreading. Finally, she cleans the area, ensures the infection is gone and seals the area to stabilize the tooth.

Dr. Eizadi may place crowns or fillings to further restore, strengthen, and protect your affected tooth. Dr. Eizadi typically prescribes antibiotics.

The experienced dental staff at Del Mar Dentistry Center provide natural-looking fillings and crowns that blend in with your teeth.

What are the benefits of a root canal?

Root canals offer many benefits. In the past, teeth usually had to be pulled when badly infected or if the pulp became severely inflamed. Thanks to modern technological advances, natural teeth can be saved with a root canal procedure.

When teeth fall out, facial muscles can droop and change the shape of your face. This sunken-in look is usually more common when multiple teeth fall out. A root canal enables you to keep both your face shape and your natural teeth.

Dr. Eizadi can also use sedation dentistry when appropriate to eliminate anxiety and discomfort during your procedure.

After your root canal and once your infection has completely gone, you can resume your normal, chewing, speaking, and eating habits. If your tooth is removed, effective dental restoration options include bridges, dentures, and dental implants.
