Bay Area Endodontic Treatments
Root canal therapy (endodontics) is an important phase of dental care that allows our patients to preserve their natural teeth, even if they have been impacted by:
- Severe sensitivity
- Dental abscesses
- Deep fractures or decay
Root Canal: The Procedure
During your root canal procedure, we will remove damaged tooth surfaces and the infected nerve inside of the tooth. The nerve chamber is thoroughly cleaned, medicated and permanently sealed off to prevent re-infection or resorption.
Both Drs. Trinh Lee and Suzanna Lee offer in-house root canal therapy at our Mountain View practice. Their precision to detail and ability to manipulate even the hardest-to-reach areas make it easier for you to get the quality of care that you expect from a facility such as ours.
What Comes Next?
After your root canal, it’s necessary to place a full coverage dental crown over the tooth. This prevents the non-vital tooth from wearing or chipping away from regular biting and chewing.
Don’t be nervous about your root canal procedure. It can actually save your smile! Ask Drs. Trinh Lee and Suzanna Lee about our sedation options to keep you as comfortable as possible. During your visit, they will also discuss the status of your current dental health and other dental procedures including gentle and comfortable tooth extractions.
