If you require Placerville root canal therapy treatment, it is important to find a dentist who prioritizes your comfort and can deliver the most precise and gentle care. At the office of Carl M. Hillendahl, we make root canal therapy a stress-free experience, utilizing advanced techniques to allay your worry and anxiety. With this highly effective treatment, our team of professionals can resolve tooth infections and help you to preserve and maintain your natural teeth.
Root canal therapy addresses irreversible damage to the tooth’s nerve supply, which is located underneath the tooth’s outermost biting surface, in what is known as the dental pulp. When a tooth is first growing and developing, the dental pulp supplies it with blood and nutrients, however, once a tooth is fully matured, it no longer requires dental pulp to remain functional. Damage such as deep decay or infection can compromise the dental pulp, allowing bacteria to seep in and cause infection. When a tooth is infected, you may experience uncomfortable symptoms, such as oral pain, fever and swelling. It is important to seek emergency treatment from our highly skilled dentist if you are experiencing a toothache. By thoroughly examining the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, our dentist can determine if a Placerville root canal is needed. A successful root canal provides much needed relief from the painful symptoms of a toothache and prevents subsequent infection from occurring. Our team of professionals will keep you well informed and at ease throughout your treatment. We also offer safe and controlled sedation techniques to help any patients who are overly anxious or stressed to feel more relaxed. Following treatment, our dentist may recommend a restoration such as a dental crown, to rebuild the appearance and function of your tooth.
