If you have a severely damaged or diseased tooth that’s causing you pain and discomfort, you may feel your only option is extraction. Often, however, damaged teeth can be saved through root canal treatment. An evaluation by Dr. Fanny Yacaman from Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry in Beverly Hills can determine if root canal therapy is the tooth pain solution you need.
Although it’s possible to replace a tooth after it’s been extracted, no replacement is equal to your natural teeth. There are more significant advantages to saving a natural tooth with root canal therapy, when possible, than having it extracted. Through root canal therapy, Dr. Fanny Yacaman can:
Dr. Yacaman will perform your root canal under anesthesia so that you won’t feel any pain or discomfort during your treatment.
When treated quickly, root canal therapy can effectively save a severely decayed tooth that can’t be treated with an ordinary filling, a broken or fractured tooth, or a tooth damaged by trauma.
A dental examination by Dr. Yacaman will determine if a root canal is a good option for you. Sometimes, teeth are so severely damaged that they cannot be repaired. That’s why getting a checkup is vital at the first sign of pain. The longer you delay, the worse your condition could become. In time, your tooth could suffer such irreparable damage that you have no choice but extraction.
