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.
Many people believe that a root canal treatment in LA 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.
LA 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.
Painless Tooth Extraction in Los Angeles
No one enjoys the idea of having to go to a dentist or dental surgeon to get a tooth or wisdom teeth pulled – and we understand that. There are many of reasons why Dr. Charles Huang may recommend a tooth extraction: tooth decay, gum disease, preparation for braces, or impacted wisdom teeth extraction.
We will begin the tooth extraction procedure by applying either a local or general anesthetic, which will numb the area around the tooth to be removed. Once the area is fully numbed, the tooth or teeth can be extracted. Once the operation is complete, you may or may not need some stitches.
The great thing is that recovery time from tooth extraction or wisdom teeth extraction is typically only a few days. There are also many things that you can do to speed up the tooth extraction recovery, such as rinsing your mouth with salt water and regularly replacing gauze.
