In such cases, a root canal is the recommended solution. This procedure allows the removal of the infected area of the tooth, which is the pulp, followed by thorough cleaning and disinfection of the inside of the tooth, filling it, and then sealing it.
Root canals allow you to save your natural tooth without having to remove it, while still getting rid of the infected part. It can also help in the prevention of reinfection in the future.
Dr. Shabnam Khanideh and Dr. Mehra Pouyan at LiveWell Dentistry in Santa Monica are dentists who are both very skilled in performing root canals. Even though it may be a complex procedure, both of them have had years of experience and know-how to complete the process with the least pain possible for patients.
