Balboa Victory Dental specializes in endodontic care, also known as a root canal treatment. A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed every year.
At the center of your tooth is pulp. This pulp is a collection of blood vessels that help to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth,
deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Should an infection occur, it may cause visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature, or pain in the tooth and gums.
Left untreated pulp inflammation or infection can cause pain that leads to an abscess. To treat the abscess root canal treatment usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required.
Our goal is to provide you with a greater understanding of the procedures, as well as offer distinguished care and treatment. We are committed to making every aspect of your treatment comfortable.
If you think you may be in need of an endodontist, or are curious about the dental procedure involved, contact Balboa Victory Dental today. Our friendly and careful dentist knows how to make your root canal as painless and simple as possible.
