When a tooth is significantly damaged, there are typically two options available: a tooth extraction or root canal therapy. Root canal treatment allows the natural tooth to be saved and recover the health and function of your smile. Root canal therapy is recommended for the following cases:

  • Significant injury
  • Dental abscess or infection
  • Decay affecting the tooth’s pulp

  • Root canal therapy is completed in only one or two visits at Santa Margarita Dental Care. After the therapy, a dental crown is placed over the treated tooth for additional strength, beauty, and protection. Contact our office soon if you experience any dental discomfort so we can help improve your oral health through general and restorative dentistry.
