Damage or disease in the dental pulp can eventually lead to extraction if it is not treated. Our endodontist and team at Center for Implant Dentistry provide endodontic treatment to help save infected teeth. We invite you to contact us today at 661-663-9600 to learn more about endodontics in Bakersfield, California!
Endodontics focuses on treating the dental pulp, which contains connective tissue and other vital parts of the tooth. If the pulp experiences infection, you will likely experience tooth pain and sensitivity, and if the pulp remains untreated, this can result in a dead tooth. Endodontic treatment can help save the tooth, allowing you to keep it instead of having it removed.
Root canal therapy is one of the endodontic treatments we offer. During this process, we take out the diseased or injured tissue. After that, we sterilize and fill the tooth, and then we place a dental crown.
If you are experiencing tooth pain, call us today for a consultation. During the consultation, we will check your smile to see if you require a root canal or one of our other endodontic treatments, such as apicoectomy, pulpotomy, pulpal debridement and root canal retreatment. We are dedicated to healing your smile!
