It doesn’t matter where you live, if you’ve ever suffered from a toothache in Los Angeles or anywhere, you know that it can lead to severely frustrating pain that is in no way compatible with a busy day in a big city. Unfortunately, many people who are suffering from pain in their teeth put off having it checked due to anxiety at the thought of visiting the dentist. That’s what makes Dr. Farzad Feiz and his team at Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care so invaluable. Root canals in West Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley have helped countless patients by ending their tooth pain once and for all.
At his comfortable dental offices, Dr. Feiz oversees a team that is wholly capable of treating a wide variety of dental issues an individual might face, including the severe endangerment of a tooth that might require root canals in Los Angeles at one of his offices. A root canal (also called endodontic therapy) is a relatively simple procedure that’s commonly used to repair and save a tooth that is decayed or that has become infected.
The procedure can be particularly necessary if the pulp tissue or nerve inside one's tooth becomes inflamed or infected. Over time, tooth decay can wear down a tooth, allowing harmful bacteria to reach the soft tissue, but root canals from our Los Angeles team can remedy this situation so that pain and the risk of complications does not persist. It’s also important to note that, contrary to what you might have heard, a properly performed root canal typically involves little or next to no discomfort.
Signs you May Require a Root Canal
Dr. Feiz and his team are able to repair a decayed or infected tooth with root canals in Los Angeles, but it’s important to keep in mind that you’ll need to know the signs that you can benefit from a root canal. Some common signs include:
- Severe toothache or pain – particularly when chewing or pressure is applied
- Physical signs like discoloration of the tooth or swelling and tenderness in the gums. In some cases, a pimple might consistently recur at the gum line.
- Enhanced sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
- If you have recently experienced trauma to the mouth, an accidental blow to the tooth, multiple fillings over the years, or a broken down tooth needing a crown, you might also be at risk for experiencing infection of a tooth.
Yet, in some cases, there will be no signs or symptoms at all – which is why it is always essential to schedule a regular or deep cleaning with a dental professional at Calabasas Dental Group or California Dental Care. Whether you require root canals in West Los Angeles/San Fernando Valley or any other dental procedure – including cosmetic surgeries like laser teeth whitening in office – you can do no better than to schedule an appointment with our first-rate team.
