Save your smile with the help of a root canal.

Root canals have certainly been the brunt of many jokes; however, not so much anymore. That’s because more and more people are Root_Canalrealizing that this procedure is actually nothing to fear, and that is instead incredibly beneficial to maintaining a healthy smile. Here at the Santa Cruz, CA, office of dentist Dr. John Baron, we want you to know exactly what is entailed with root canal treatment—read on to learn more!

 

Save your smile

If our Santa Cruz, CA, dentist has discovered that you have infected or inflamed dental pulp, then a root canal is the only procedure that can address this problem. The sooner that you receive this care and remove the damaged pulp, the sooner that you can eliminate the trademark toothache associated with damaged pulp.

 

Say goodbye to pain

As alluded to above, one reason people come into our office between cleanings is to address toothaches. A toothache is a dental emergency that needs to be treated right away. While a toothache could mean lots of things including a cavity, a severe toothache that gets worse when biting down or is accompanied by random tooth sensitivity could be a sign that you need a root canal.

A root canal is performed under local anesthesia, which will numb the area around the tooth. Not only should you not feel any discomfort during your procedure, but this treatment also eliminates the pain caused by the infected tissue inside the tooth. During treatment, we will remove the diseased tissue, disinfect the tooth, and apply a sealant inside of the structure before placing a dental crown. After that, your smile will be healthy once again!
