Root canal Van Nuys
At Van Nuys Dental Care, our root canal Van Nuys
is done in a relaxed office and finished as quickly as possible to have you in and out of our offices. Root canals help us to do important things like save your tooth from extraction and for the tooth to be pulled before the infection gets worse. If the infection gets worse, it’s possible an extraction may need to be done. Symptoms include swollen gums, redness and pain.
Oftentimes, infected and inflamed gums can cause an abscess or periodontal disease. Gum disease can end up damaging the tooth’s pulp. After a root canal Van Nuys, patients may return home right after the procedure and rest as they heal from this procedure. Sometimes, the inner pulp of the tooth can be damaged by other means. Periodontal disease or damage to the tooth may cause cracks or breakage. Even if the pulp has been damaged, it is not always necessary to pull the tooth. The healing process for a root canal is usually quick and painless. Healing may take slightly longer if an abscess has formed. An abscess is a pus filled area of tissue that can spread quickly to become an infection and can be painful and swollen.
If you believe that you have an abscess, you should schedule an appointment immediately to have us check your teeth and perform a root canal Van Nuys
if needed. Feel free to call us and ask other questions about dentistry and our services. We want our patients to be open about asking questions and taking charge of their dental health and health care. We have also moved to a new state of the art facility in Van Nuys, not far from our previous location. Patients can get directions on our website or just give us a call.
