When your tooth is badly damaged, root canal therapy may be suggested as a form of treatment. Cavities, cracks, and severe decay can compromise a tooth’s structure. By clearing the affected tooth of bacteria and infection, we are able to offer a complete recovery for our patients. Allow our team to make you comfortable and put you at ease as we restore your tooth to a healthier state. To learn more about root canal therapy in San Diego and Rancho Bernardo, California, and to make your appointment with our skilled dentist, call San Diego Dentistry Studio at 858-257-3412.

Cracks and deep cavities can lead to the decay of your tooth’s overall structure. When the damage causes infection, the tooth becomes threatened. Root canals are the suggested form of treatment to save your damaged tooth and help you maintain a healthy smile. Symptoms that may require a root canal treatment to resolve include:

  • Increased pain in a recently cracked tooth
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, foods, and beverages
  • Abscesses or “tooth pimples”

When you visit our dental studio for your root canal treatment, we will help you to relax and feel at ease before you meet with our dentist. Dr. Tim Garofolo will then assess your mouth and the infected tooth to determine the best option for restoring it to full health and function. If a root canal is determined to be the best treatment plan, we will schedule a second appointment for you. During your second appointment, we will clean and disinfect the nerve chamber of your tooth, and ensure that it is no longer in danger of infection. We will complete your treatment by toping your tooth with a customized porcelain crown to strengthen it and prevent future damage.
