Pain-Free Treatment to Alleviate Tooth Pain

About 15 million teeth are saved every year with root canal treatment. A root canal is necessary when a tooth’s pulp becomes inflamed or infected. If pulp infection is left untreated, this can cause severe pain and lead to an abscess. While the perception that root canals are painful began decades ago, advances in dental technology have resulted in root canals that are no more uncomfortable than having a cavity filled. Avion Dental strives to change patients’ thoughts about root canal treatment using technologies that enable a painless approach while alleviating dental anxiety. During a root canal in our Chino Hills, CA office, our highly skilled dentist, the infected pulp and nerve in your tooth root, cleans and shapes the inside of the root canal, then fills and seals the space.

The Out-of-Sight, Essential Tooth Root

A tooth root comprises the lower two-thirds of your tooth, anchoring it in position and keeping your jawbone healthy. The root canal space is located below the pulp chamber in the radicular portion of the tooth. The end tip of the tooth root is called the apex. Root canals can be round, oval, long oval, flattened, or irregular. In most people, incisors, canines, and premolars have one root, while molars have two or three, each of which can get infected.

Effective Pain Relief Through Root Canal Therapy

Ensuring optimal dental health demands regular visits to the dentist. Neglecting oral bacteria can lead to infection in the inner tooth chamber, fostering dental decay and additional infections over time.

Our experienced dentist, Dr. Kim, administers root canal therapy to alleviate discomfort and eliminate infections. The process begins with a precise enamel perforation, followed by meticulous removal of decayed matter down to the root. After a thorough cleansing, the tooth is filled with dental filling. For cases necessitating a more comprehensive approach, Dr. Kim will affix a dental crown, restoring both function and aesthetics. Remarkably, Avion Dental in Chino Hills, CA, harnesses cutting-edge CEREC 3D printing technology to craft in-house crowns, streamlining root canal therapy into a single, convenient appointment!
