If you have a severely injured, cracked, or decayed tooth, you may need to consider endodontic treatment, also known as a root canal. Dr. Rad, a trusted and experienced dentist, can help save your tooth by removing the inflamed or infected pulp from the root canal. Failure to do so promptly can lead to pain or an infection in the tooth, which can have serious consequences.
Why Get Root Canal Treatment?
Dr. Rad provides available office visits in West Covina for root canal treatment, depending on the severity of the infection and the required treatment plan. After the procedure, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth, provided you maintain good oral hygiene. With proper care, the restored tooth can last a lifetime.
What are Symptoms to Look Out For?
Symptoms that indicate you may need a root canal include tooth or gum pain, discoloration, or prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold. If your tooth is tender to the touch, or if you experience pus drainage in your mouth or swelling or tenderness in the lymph nodes under your jaw, you should see Dr. Rad for prompt evaluation and treatment.
In some cases, endodontic problems can exist without warning signs. Dr. Rad can detect these issues during a routine dental checkup using digital X-rays, helping to prevent further damage to your teeth and gums. Don’t wait until it’s too late – contact Dr. Rad today for all your root canal and dental care needs.
