 Dentist Redondo Beach Root Canals

We can help you preserve your damaged teeth with root canal therapy at an affordable root canal cost at Redondo Beach location, Our root canal treatment utilizes cutting edge technology that enables us to perform the procedure with accuracy and precision. Most commonly our patients will require a root canal treatment under several different circumstances. Repeated surgery on a specific tooth, decaying teeth, and a cracked tooth are all common causes that lead to root canal surgery.

Root Canal Treatments

Root Canal is the arm of dentistry concerned with the pulp – the soft tissue at the center of each tooth. When people talk about endodontics, they are generally referring to the procedure known as root canal treatment.

What is endondontics?

The pulp consists of blood vessels, nerves and various other tissues. While the pulp is vital in a tooth’s development during childhood, by the time we reach adulthood, the tooth has finished growing and the pulp starts to decrease in size.

If the pulp becomes infected or contaminated by decay, the tooth becomes painful and root canal treatment is usually indicated.

Signs you may need a root canal treatment
The most obvious sign is that the tooth really hurts. It is not uncommon for the pain to be throbbing in nature. The gum nearby may also be swollen while cold or hot drinks cause severe pain for an extended period. Often the pain is bad enough to wake a person from their sleep. A discoloured tooth or an obvious cavity are also signs of possible pulp damage.

Don’t ignore the symptoms
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of pulp infection, it is vital that you see your dentist. If you ignore the pain, it may go away by itself but that only means the pulp of the tooth is dead and the nerves there can no longer send pain signals. But the bacteria causing the infection will still be present and if left untreated, it can migrate to the jaw and gums and even lead to an abscess.

What is the procedure for root canal treatment?

The infected or diseased pulp is removed, along with any decayed sections of the tooth. A very fine spinning file is used to clean and shape the empty root canal where the pulp once was. The root canal is then treated with disinfectant to destroy any remaining bacteria. The final step is to fill the root canal with a special material called gutta percha and then restore the tooth. In some cases, if the decay has been particularly extensive, a crown will need to be fitted.

After care
There may be a little pain straight after the procedure but that should fade fairly quickly. A regular routine of brushing and flossing is all that is required to look after your treated tooth.

Does it hurt?

In the past, root canal treatments were painful and became the punchline of many jokes. (‘I would rather have a root canal than…!’). These days, with modern anaesthesia and the latest endodontic technology, a root canal procedure is virtually painless. The fear of the treatment is often much worse than the treatment itself.

Are there alternatives to root canal treatment?

An alternative to root canal treatment is extraction and replacement of the tooth with either a bridge, an implant, or dentures. However, it is always preferable to keep your natural tooth rather than replace it with a false tooth. The other advantage of root canal treatment is that it is usually cheaper than the other options.

How long does a root canal treatment last?

After your treatment, the tooth will feel just like normal. It may seem strange that a tooth without a pulp can be functional and look normal but, happily, that is the case. A treated tooth can last a lifetime but that is dependent on an effective and frequent oral hygiene regimen, and regular visits to the dentist – at least twice a year.

What is a Root Canal?
A root canal, or root canal therapy, is a common dental procedure used to save a tooth that has been damaged. Inside each of your teeth is a small bundle of nerves and blood vessels called the “pulp.” The pulp kept your tooth alive while it was growing when you were a child, and it also allows your teeth to sense pressure and temperature. Unfortunately, the pulp is very sensitive, and if your tooth is damaged it can be exposed to infection. Once this happens the pulp has to be removed with root canal therapy.

How does a Root Canal work? Does it hurt?

The actual root canal procedure is simple. We drill a small hole in your tooth and remove the pulp, then clean the inside of the tooth and close the hole with a filling. Depending on which tooth we are working on, we may place a crown over the tooth to restore and protect it.

Although root canals have a reputation for being painful, with modern dental technology and pain management the procedure is no more painful than getting a filling.

How do I know if I need a Root Canal?

An infection in your pulp can be felt as a sharp in your tooth while you are chewing or when you eat something hot or cold. Infections can also be painless and can only be detected during a dental exam. Your best defence is to go for regular examinations.

How root canal can improve my dental health

How root canal can improve my dental health ?

 

The aim of root canal treatment is to save a tooth that has been damaged by decay, disease or injury. The dead tissue is removed from the canal, medications such as antiseptics and localised antibiotics are used to clean the inside of the tooth, and the canals are filled. Root canal treatment is successful in most cases and if you take good care of the treated tooth, it can last for many years – possibly for the rest of your life. However, your tooth will not be treated unless the treatment is likely to succeed. In some cases, root canal treatment may not be appropriate and extraction may be the best option.

What does Root Canal Treatment really mean?2017-05-27T15:45:05+00:00

Root canal treatment (also called endodontic treatment) is a procedure that specifically treats the nerve of the tooth and tissues surrounding the root of the tooth.

I am very disappointed with this dental office. This office is inadequate. They will deceive you. I will not recommend them under any circumstances. I came into their office today first, Jessy their very unprofessional manager did not let me choose the filling that was priority. Jessy will lie to you regarding treatment that you obviously need and say that you don’t, completely unacceptable. Dr. Parducho then proceeds to fill my wisdom tooth that is set to be extracted and was not in the treatment plan to be filled. This action should never happen. They also tried to take X-ray’s every time I came in this shows carelessness to the patient’s health with the excessive use of radiation. This dental office is clearly corrupt. Speaking to dentist after procedure was denied for guilty reasons. I then asked for my treatment plan to be printed and given to me Jessy refused to do so. I being an honest professional in the dental field myself providing a treatment plan to our patients is a must. The dentist and all staff acted below the applicable standard of care.read more

Zero stars for the worst dental experience of my life. Jessy is probably the most disrespectful degrading dental assistant I've ever had to deal with. She made me wait for 1.5 hours in the lobby. I came on time to my appointment and two other people came after me, yet they were seen before me! When I asked why and it obviously seemed like she had some preference to those customers...and her reasoning was oh they were in pain...BS. Dr. Parducho is a great dentist yet it's unfortunate her front desk staff (the first person you contact at a dental office and sets the tone) is unprofessional and condescending. It's unfortunate I was looking forward to coming here because a coworker recommended them. Do yourself a favor and find a dental office that will respect you and make you feel good after leaving the office.read more

The worst dental appointment ever. I was warned by another person while waiting in the lobby. They are very unprofessional and had none of my paperwork together so I waited for almost an hour before they took me. I scheduled an appointment for cleaning and all the dentist did was take x-rays and examine my teeth. Don't waste your time.read more

Miss Jessy & Dr. Parducho! 5 out of 5 Stars!!!! The fear from my dentistry past had caused me to neglect my dental health for too many years. You & Dr. P provided THE MOST comforting care before, during and after all the work that needed done. I couldn't be more grateful for your kindness, compassion, and work to get my mouth in its best health. And now- I'm happy to say, you've both given me the confidence & care to keep these teeth & gums a top priority! Thank You for everythingread more

Just moved to town and looking for a good dentist for my daughter. Based on reviews I tried them. Both times they made an appointment and then were 30 minutes late. The second time they made an appointment for procedure that wasn’t covered by my insurance (and I have great insurance - this never happened at my old dentist) and then didn’t tell me until they handed me the bill. Needless to say there will not be a third time with them.read more
