Root Canal San Juan Capistrano

 

At Reflection Dental San Juan Capistrano, we regularly perform a root canal endodontic treatment in order to remove infections and save our patients’ teeth. Dr. Akhavan is an expert at completing the procedure and doing so while keeping patients completely comfortable. Root canals are a common procedure.

Process Of A Root Canal

In fact, every year millions of root canals are performed and, as a result, the need to pull infected teeth is greatly reduced. If you live in the San Juan Capistrano area and are currently experiencing tooth pain, we invite you to call 949-667-9981 to schedule an appointment and see if you need a root canal endodontic treatment.

Why do most people need a root canal?

When a tooth becomes infected, that infection can spread into the center of the tooth. This area is called the dental pulp. Inside of the dental pulp is the nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels. All of the sensitive areas of the tooth are contained here. As such, when the area becomes infected it can be incredibly painful, requiring immediate treatment. Our dentist San Juan Capistrano can perform a root canal quickly on people living in and around the 92675 area.

How does the treatment work?

A root canal endodontic procedure works by creating a small hole in the tooth so that all of the infected areas can be removed. The dental pulp is removed, and oftentimes so are the roots. You only need your tooth roots to feel sensations like hot and cold and for the tooth to grow in. Once it has fully matured, removing the roots will not directly harm the tooth. It can, however, prevent the further spread of infection so when it is necessary to remove the roots; we promptly do so. Once done, we will clean the area to ensure that the infection is gone. Dr. Akhavan will typically prescribe antibiotics as well. This ensures that any lingering infection is eliminated.

In order to complete the root canal, we will seal up the hole and area where the dental pulp used to be. This is typically done with something called gutta-percha. This is a rubber-like substance that can help to stabilize the tooth now that a portion is missing. At Reflection Dental San Juan Capistrano, we will then use a filling or crown in order to further strengthen and protect the damaged tooth. Both fillings and crowns can now be created in a tooth-color. This means that regardless of where your infected tooth is located, a crowns can be used, and it will blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth. Patients throughout the San Juan Capistrano area appreciate how natural their tooth looks once the procedure is complete.

★★★★★ Dr. Akhavan is a wonderful dentist. I usually dread going to see a dentist but since I started going to Dr. Akhavan my experience is always pleasant. He is caring and positive and puts you at ease. He took out my top wisdom teeth and it only took her 15 minutes! It was fast and painless. My gums healed without any problems and I was eating an apple 3 days later! He is also extremely honest and won't try to push you to do any unnecessary dental work like many other dentists I have encountered. I highly recommend her! Best dentist by far!

★★★★★ I had such a wonderful experience with Doctor Akhavan. He is a perfectionist and I had a horrible experience with a prior dentist and there were issues with a particular tooth. This dentist worked wonders and I couldn't be happier with the result. I can feel confident to smile again! The office and staff are also very warm and professional. I am beyond satisfied with my experience with this dentist.
