Root Canal Therapy
Do you have uncomfortable tooth pain or sensitivity to hot/cold that gets worse at night? You may need a root canal.
If you have uncomfortable symptoms such as a toothache that gets worse at night or sensitive teeth that cannot tolerate hot and/or cold, then you might have nerve damage inside your tooth and may need a root canal. At Dr. Zak Long Beach Dental Care, our Dentists specialize in removing harmful bacteria and toxins from your tooth and make sure to seal the tooth to prevent future infections so that you are free from pain and discomfort.
This dangerous condition is treated with a root canal procedure, which includes two parts. First, the bacteria, nerve tissue, and toxins must be removed from the pulp chamber, and the area must be cleaned out. Next, the tooth must be filled and sealed to prevent reinfection.
