Tooth Saving With Root Canal in Brentwood Area

Saving a natural tooth with the root canal procedure performed by Brentwood area dentist

Posted By

Brentwood, California area patients who are told that they may need a root canal procedure may quickly push back against their dentist’s recommendations. Many patients believe that this treatment is painful, when really, it provides pain relief for individuals dealing with abscesses, infections, and injured teeth. In fact, this procedure is an effective way of saving a tooth from requiring permanent extraction. Extraction means additional dental services to replace the tooth and restore proper function and aesthetics of the smile. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury and the team at Brentwood Family Dental encourage patients to give root canal therapy a chance, as it can eliminate added costs and problems for many individuals who choose not to go forward with treatment.

What happens during root canal therapy?

Also known as endodontic therapy, root canal therapy is the name for a procedure that saves a natural tooth from extraction. When a problem arises in or around a tooth and causes problems, its necessary to seek treatment. During root canal therapy, the dentist will create an access point into the inner canals of the tooth. This is then used to remove the dental pulp from inside. The dental pulp is the mass of tissues that include the blood supply and nerves that keep the tooth alive. Once removed, the canals are disinfected before gutta percha and composite bonding are used to seal off the tooth. In some instances, a dental crown is fabricated and placed to protect the tooth.

What are the benefits of root canal therapy?

When advised to undergo treatment, our team will provide patients with information to help them in making a knowledgeable decision regarding their dental situation. Root canal therapy is often encouraged because it:
  • Eliminates the need for extracting a natural tooth
  • Keeps the tooth structure in place for appearance and function
  • Is safe and predictable
  • Is an affordable option when compared to tooth removal and replacement
  • Is a long-lasting solution to a damaged tooth
