Root canals are one of the most common dental procedures. They can restore damaged a tooth and allow patients to have a healthier smile without the need for a dental implant or any other restorative dentistry treatment. These are the benefits of getting root canal procedures in our Los Algodones practice.
The most important benefit of root canal treatment is that the patients get to keep their natural teeth, which is always the ideal choice to prevent tooth loss and the many other consequences of it, like bone loss and infection of the surrounding teeth.
With good oral hygiene and regular check ups, a restored tooth can last for the rest of your life. If needed, the dental crown placed on the tooth can be changed by a simple procedure after some years.
Keeping your natural teeth means maintaining the beauty of your smile. The endodontist (root canal dentist) will choose the color of your dental crowns to match the rest of your teeth, and you will be able to smile confidently without needing any extra procedures.
It is also important to consider that this dental work won’t make your restored tooth feel any different from the rest of your teeth.
The nerves and blood vessels that will be extracted during the procedure are there because they make the tooth grow during its developing stage.
A fully formed tooth can exist without this soft tissue and it will feel completely normal when chewing.
A great benefit of saving your teeth with a root canal in Los Algodones, instead of extraction, is that it is cost-effective by not needing any extra procedure to replace the missing teeth, like dental implants or bridges, which are more expensive procedures, with prices of thousands of dollars in the US and Canada.

Also known as endodontics, a root canal is a procedure that aims to extract the soft tissue from inside the tooth, called the pulp, in cases when this is inflamed due to infected tooth or any type of damage to the tooth.
This way, the tooth won’t need to be extracted, and as the pulp chamber will be filled with a special resin, there won’t be a chance of re-infection in the future.
By avoiding the extraction, the patient won’t need to go through any other dental procedures to restore missing teeth.
Oral health issues like severe tooth decay or an infected tooth can damage the inside of the tooth and cause an infection or inflammation of the tooth’s pulp.
This soft tissue is located on the deepest part of the teeth behind the dentin and contains all the nerves and blood vessels; this is the reason why there’s so much pain when there’s an infected pulp.
To remove the affected tissue and prevent further damage, in the first stage of the treatment the dentist will use a drill to clear the tooth cavity to get rid of all the root canal infection, then take out the nerves and tissue from inside the tooth root. If there is an abscess it will be drained as well. The pulp chamber will then be filled and sealed with a material called gutta-percha.
To restore the outside of the tooth and protect the inside, a dental crown will be placed. This way the patient will be able to keep their natural tooth with all its function and aesthetic.
Root canals can also be performed on a damaged front tooth to save it from being extracted
