Our office in Pacoima, CA offers root canals or extractions for badly damaged teeth. A root canal may be necessary if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
A tooth tender to the touch
An abscess in the tooth or tissue
'Swelling in the jaw lymph nodes
Pain from cold
Root Canal treatment involves the removal of the infected pulp and the nerve through the tooth's canal. The pulp chamber and canals of the tooth are cleaned and sealed. A dental crown or filling is used to seal the tooth and prevent further damage.
If you're experiencing pain in the teeth or gums, call Plenty O' Smiles to talk to Dr. O and the staff about your symptoms.
