What is a smile makeover?

The goal of a root canal is to alleviate pain and save an infected tooth. Dr. Hurtado eliminates the bacteria and any dead or dying tissue from inside your tooth if it becomes severely infected. Doing so lets him get rid of your pain and preserve your tooth.

What leads to an infection in the tooth root?

Tissue and roots inside of your teeth can get infected with bacteria due to injury to the tooth or from a cavity that remains untreated for too long. The infected tissue can develop inside the pulp or root of your tooth if you neglect to go to the dentist. If the infection develops any further this can lead to many other issues, so make sure you seek help.

How can I recognize an infected tooth?

An infected tooth can cause severe pain and discomfort. Symptoms may include inflamed gums, tooth sensitivity to hot and cold, bad breath, pus around the tooth, jaw or mouth throbbing, and tooth discoloration.

What's involved in a root canal?

Dr. Hurtado can typically fix your tooth in one or two visits. He begins by assessing the damage with digital X-rays. During the procedure, he numbs the area with local anesthetic and uses a dental dam to keep the tooth clean. Dr. Hurtado removes infected pulp, cleans the area, and seals the tooth or places a temporary filling. For tooth infection concerns, contact Cesar Hurtado DDS or book a consultation online.
