Dental Root Canal in Los Angeles

We Offer Pain-free Dental Root Canal Treatment in DTLA

A root canal treatment is a dental procedure that helps to alleviate your pain, save the tooth, avoid tooth extraction, and preserve the normal function of the tooth. Root canal treatment in LA becomes necessary when tooth decay is not treated early enough and it reaches the nerve, or when you break a tooth exposing the nerve. Sometimes, a tooth cannot be saved and tooth extraction in Los Angeles is recommended to prevent further spread of infection and pain.

Root Canals in Los Angeles

Many people believe that a root canal treatment in Los Angeles is an extremely painful procedure. However, in reality, it should not be any more painful than having a filling. At River Dentistry – the leading experts in endodontcs in Downtown Los Angeles – we always strive to make any treatment as comfortable and painless as possible, including root canal endonontics.

Painless Root Canal Treatment

We will first treat the affected root canal treatment candidate tooth with antibiotics and pain medications. Once it is soothed, we will numb the area and Dr. Charles Huang will open the tooth. We will clean out the infected root canal pulp chambers and place sterile material inside to prevent further infection and to fill the hollow. You will feel more comfortable right away and we will also recommend additional tooth pain medication, over-the-counter or prescription, if needed for you to get back to normal over the next few days.

Following a root canal treatment in LA the posterior (back) molars which endure a lot of bite pressure are usually crowned for additional strength. Anterior (front) teeth that endure less pressure when chewing may be filled with composite resin or bonding material.

You don’t have to endure the pain and misery of inflamed dental root canal when relief is as close as River Dentistry in Downtown Los Angeles. Call us today and let us help you smile again!

I recently moved to LA and was looking for a dentist. The Yelp reviews were 100% positive, so I had to check it out. From the very beginning each staff member was warm and friendly... and proceeded to do a great job. These guys are really great. Amazing customer service and genuine concern. A very satisfied customer 🙂 (Yelp Review)

Mala L. Los Angeles, CA

What a find! Needed a dentist in my area that was open on Saturday and, to my great pleasure, I found River Dentistry. I went in because of a chipped front tooth and came out with a fresh clean smile. Dr. Huang is amazing with his work and also with the care and attention he provides [to] his patients. (Yelp Review)
