Root Canal Therapy
Do you experience toothache and temperature sensitivity? If yes, you might have nerve damage inside your tooth.
Nerve damage can cause painful swelling, abscess, jawbone destruction, airway construction, or sinus infection, along with harmful symptoms.
To repair nerve damage your Wellness Doctor at Dr. Zak Dental Care in Ventura might recommend a root canal as part of your treatment plan. This procedure will remove bacteria and other toxins; and seal the tooth to protect it from future infections.
This condition is treated with a root canal procedure, which consists of two parts. The first part involves removing the bacteria, nerve tissue, and toxins from the pulp chamber and cleaning this area out. The second part involves filling in and sealing up the tooth in order to prevent later reinfection.
