RESTORATIVE & ROOT CANALS

At the Beverly Hills Dental Center, Dr. Roger Eshaghian can save a tooth with a root canal treatment and do it painlessly. 

What is a Root Canal Treatment?

The aim of root canal treatment is to remove bacteria from an infected root canal, avoid reinfection, and protect the tooth structure. The inflamed or contaminated pulp is extracted, and the interior of the cavity is meticulously washed and disinfected before being filled and closed.

No need to worry if a root canal procedure to treat a damaged or ill tooth is prescribed by your dentist/endodontist. Every year, thousands of teeth are handled and preserved in this manner, alleviating pain and restoring teeth health.

Inside the tooth is a soft tissue called the pulp, under the white enamel and a rough layer known as dentin. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue that aid in developing the root of your tooth. Without the pulp, a fully formed tooth will survive as the tooth remains fed by its surroundings.

The current root canal procedure is not at all like the old sayings! It's very close to a traditional filling, and based on the state of your tooth and your circumstances, it can typically be done in one or two appointments. A root canal is a fairly painless and highly successful procedure.

There are numerous advantages to preserving the natural tooth by root canal treatment.

  • Effective chewing

  • Normal biting power and sensation

  • Natural appearances

  • protects against unnecessary wear or strain of other teeth.

Fillings

The most effective method of treating a cavity is to extract the decay and fill the tooth with one of several materials. Gold, porcelain, amalgam (which contains mercury combined with tin, silver, copper, and zinc), composite are used in these filling products.
