Root Canal Therapy For A Toothache In San Diego

Root canal dentist in Sandiego serving La Mesa and El CajonYour teeth and your bones are made up of very similar materials, and are the most durable and robust parts of your body. However, they are far from being indestructible. Your bones can break, get brittle, and even get infected. What more can you expect from your teeth, which are much more exposed than your bones?

If you have felt any pain or discomfort or just general wear and tear, it is best to set an appointment and visit our San Diego dentist office in La Mesa for a checkup as soon as possible.

If you delay having yourself checked, then it might lead to further complications and more problems in the future. It might turn out that you are in need of a root canal.

What are root canals?

Whenever you feel discomfort or pain in your tooth, the likely cause is bacteria that have burrowed through the enamel of your tooth. Once the bacteria reach the central nerve of your tooth, you will start to experience pain or great discomfort, and you need to get your tooth checked at once.

Perhaps the most advisable solution to this problem, according to dentists, is to get a root canal procedure. This is done by removing the infected tooth pulp from the root of your tooth.

You shouldn’t worry about any dangerous side effects because the tooth no longer needs the pulp once it is already fully formed. Once this pulp is extracted, a dental crown is secured with a special adhesive in order to seal the surface of the tooth.

After the procedure is complete, you will be truly pain-free and can go back to enjoying every meal and every smile like nothing ever happened.

"I have never been to a better office in any medical or dental facility. Dr Gray’s office is peaceful, welcoming, and comfortable. Everything they do, from their personal intake forms to the cozy blankets they provide, shows attention to detail and patient comfort. Each staff member is kind and friendly and very attentive. In addition, they are skilled, experienced, and professional. Needless to say, the sedation makes the process so easy. Dr. Gray is excellent and did a beautiful job on my crowns, root canals, and replacement fillings! Everything was done in one short visit. My husband and I feel so lucky to have found such a great dental office!! We recommend them all the time!"

"I've needed a lot of restorative work to lots of old fillings and also several new crowns to replace very old ones and a root canal, too. Because I've had so much dental work over the years, I have a lot of experiences to compare to and I would say Dr. Gray is by FAR the best dentist I've ever had. I've never used any of the sedation offered at Dr. Gray's and still I've never felt ANY pain whatsoever, even during the root canal (that's a first!). He's very expert and artful in all his work. I never want another dentist!"
