Precision Treatment of the Infected Pulp
Natural teeth consist of the outer crown visible above the gum line and the underlying roots. There is a hollow area within each tooth. Tunnels run down to the tooth root starting from this enclosed space. The pulp is housed inside these hollows, which contain nerves, connective tissues, and vessels. Damage to the outer tooth in the form of decay or a crack can lead to infection of this internal, or endodontic, layer. Infection of the inner tooth can develop into an abscess if left untreated and eventually cause loss of the tooth. If the infection reaches the soft pulp, Dr. Hill must clean out the entire pulp chamber. Signs you may need a root canal:
Our Beverly Hills root canal therapy removes the damaged tissue and treats the infection. The tooth is then sealed with a crown or filling to prevent further damage.

Restore Your Oral Health
Root canal therapy is the procedure used to remove the diseased contents from the inner tooth. Your dentist can repair and save a badly infected or decayed tooth with this technology. The process involves removing the pulp, cleaning, disinfecting, and sealing the tooth. An abscess may form without a root canal, and the infection will worsen and spread. This condition can mean bad news for the surrounding teeth and your health overall. Depending on the severity of the damage, your root canal specialist might perform the procedure in one day. First, you will undergo a thorough exam. Then we can determine if one appointment will suffice. Post-surgery the weakened tooth will require a protective restoration such as a filling or dental crown. Local anesthesia will be administered, and conscious sedation may also be used for your comfort. You will have the opportunity to discuss your options for anesthesia with Dr. Hill before your root canal.
Your Healthiest Teeth
Your cleaned-out and newly sealed tooth will function just like your other teeth. As always, you should focus on keeping your teeth and gums healthy with regular brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings. You may continue to have mild to moderate pain in the first few days of healing from your procedure. This can be managed with over-the-counter or prescription medication. In many cases, we can perform your root canal and filling or crown procedure in one visit. However, if two visits are required, you will need to avoid chewing with the treated tooth until you return to have it sealed.
In addition to being attentive to your dental hygiene, you should attend regular dental checkups to ensure that any developing problems are caught before they worsen. The need for additional root canals can often be prevented by catching signs of decay or damage in the outer tooth early.
Root canals are indicated for infections too deep or extensive to be treated with medication alone. Putting off a needed root canal can lead to further damage and even loss of the tooth.
With any root canal, there is a risk of incomplete removal of the infection, necessitating a second procedure.
Coverage will depend on the specifics of your dental plan. Often, root canals are partially covered by insurance.
If conscious or unconscious sedation is used during your procedure, you will need to arrange for a ride home and take it easy for the rest of the day.
