Root canal therapy works to remove infected and damaged tissue from the nerves of your teeth so that you can once again enjoy a healthy smile. Dr. Anmar Obaidi may recommend a root canal as an alternative to tooth extraction. For more information about root canal therapy in South Orange County, and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Obaidi, contact O Dental at 949-487-6780.
Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction. To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, Dr. Obaidi will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to O Dental.
Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, and anesthesia. Dr. Obaidi, along with our entire dental team, works hard to provide you with a pleasant, comfortable experience each time you visit O Dental.
