Root Canals in West LA

Westchester Endodontics Dentistry

When the matter in the center of a tooth (referred to as the "pulp" and consisting of connective tissue, nerves, and blood vessels) becomes severely infected, endodontic dentistry may be required. A skilled dentist would need to remove the infected pulp and maintain the tooth. Endodontics refers to the branch of dentistry that deals with diseases of a tooth's pulp and canals (called "root canals").

At South Bay Smiles, we are experienced in dealing with root canal procedures and always strive to help our clients through this procedure with comfort and care. Treating infected pulp in a tooth is of the utmost importance because, if left untreated, it can affect the bone surrounding the tooth, causing an abscess—not to mention a great deal of pain.

Trauma to a tooth, an untreated cavity, or an infected tooth are all causes for a root canal procedure to be necessary. If you have not been to the dentist in some time, or if you are experiencing pain in any of your teeth, it is important to consult a dentist right away to make sure your teeth are clean, healthy, and free of infection.

If you consult a dentist soon enough, a root canal may not even be necessary if the pulp in your tooth is infected. With proper care and treatment, it is possible that the situation will reverse itself.

Westchester cosmetic dentist Dr. Bradley Matthew, DDS, MICOI, is an experienced endodontic dentist who knows how to best deal with root canals and help his patients through the process, including caring for their teeth after the procedure. We help patients throughout Playa Del Ray, Marina Del Ray, Culver City, Hawthorn, Ladera Heights, El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, and Westchester.
