Board Certified endodontist providing high quality root canals.
A Root Canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. The root canal consists of removing the nerve and pulp of the tooth. They are removed completely and the inside of the tooth gets sealed and cleaned. The pulp need to be removed because the bacteria can begin to multiply in the pulp chamber, which can cause and infection or abscessed tooth
Root Canals or endodontic treatments are preformed under local anesthesia. There are no restrictions after the procedure like driving, sports or working. All medications for blood pressure, thyroid problems, diabetes or any other conditions should not be paused. If there are any questions call our office prior to your appointment.
Please eat a full meal before the treatment. After the root canal you might have to take antibiotics or Ibuprofen for the pain. Dr. Irma Gavaldon will advice you.
