Root Canals in Hanford Calfornia
Do you have a toothache that won’t quit? Do you feel pain in your gums or are your gums swollen around a certain tooth? Does it hurt when you eat or drink something hot or cold? If so, may need help with a root canal.
Pain, swelling, sensitivity, pressure, these are all signs that may tell you that a root canal is in order. More directly, they are symptoms of a problem located in the inner chamber of a tooth. Often, infection in tissue results from a cavity that has been left untreated. As bacteria move inward, these microorganisms destroy healthy tissue. The good news is that the Hanford dentist Dr. Simon Yanez can help eliminate pain and all onset health issues with a root canal. We are able to do this by removing pulp in the root canal procedure eliminating infection and pain, while also allowing us to preserve the natural tooth structure!
The Root canal procedure
- Dr. Simon Yanez prepares the tooth just as he would to treat a cavity.
- An opening is made to the root area and pulp tissue, along with nerves and vessels, is removed.
- Root canals are sterilized with a dental solution
- Filling material is placed into canals to prevent entry to bacteria
- The tooth is rebuilt with a beautiful, durable dental crown.
By completing a root canal, Dr. Simon Yanez can help you save your natural tooth and avoid having an extraction altogether. In addition, the tooth is far less likely to ever have any infection again as dental crowns that are placed during your root canal are sturdy and durable.
Dr. Simon Yanez uses several technological tools in our office to care for our patients effectively and accurately. CAT scan technology may be incorporated into the root canal procedure, allowing Dr. Simon Yanez the best view of canals. CT imaging can also identify infection that may not be seen otherwise, such as abscess beneath the gums. The 3-dimensional view obtained with advanced CT imaging also facilitates an accurate diagnosis of pulp anatomy, therefore leading to the best possible result from precision dental care
