Root Canal Therapy

Inside the roots of the teeth is the live tissue that feeds the tooth. If bacteria find their way into the interior of the tooth, it can cause an infection in the live tissue. An infected tooth can be very painful, as inflammation can irritate the live nerves inside the tooth, causing a severe toothache. Root canal therapy is the only way to treat and save an infected tooth. At Majestic Smile Studio, we provide root canals for infected teeth at our dental center in Yorba Linda, CA.

Tooth infections can occur when decay reaches the interior of the tooth. Cracked or broken teeth can also allow bacteria to infiltrate the inner sanctum of the tooth. Not all infected teeth are painful in the beginning, but if there is an abscess or swelling that presses against the nerve roots, it can result in a throbbing or painful tooth. The infection can destroy the live tissue, and the only way to save the tooth and stop the pain is to remove the infected tissue from inside the tooth.

Relief for Infected Tooth Pain

Root canal therapy is a procedure that removes the nerve roots and live tissue inside the tooth roots. Dr. Gutierrez can access the interior of the tooth through the cusp, cleaning out the inside of the roots. The interior of the tooth is disinfected to stop the infection, then filled with a sterilized material before the tooth is resealed.

Once the root canal procedure is completed, the nerves of the tooth are gone. The surrounding gum tissue may be slightly sore from the treatment, but the tooth will no longer have pain. Most teeth that receive root canal therapy will need a dental crown placed to protect the weakened structure. Our clinic offers beautiful white crowns that we can place on the tooth after the procedure.

If you are experiencing tooth pain, come see us at Majestic Smile Studio. If you have an infected tooth, we can perform a root canal procedure to save your tooth and relieve your pain. Contact our dental center in the Yorba Linda and Anaheim, CA, area to schedule your appointment.

The best dentist I've ever been to, this place is awesome ! As everyone knows, going to a dental office typically isn't a celebratory and pleasant event! However, my experience here changed my outlook on dentistry for the better. Nicole the office manager was very kind and set the appointment for me even though I had to be back to my office by 9 AM and I needed to have an appointment closer to 7 AM, she moved things around and accommodate me and promised I won’t be late to work. Veronica(who administered the X-rays and assisted Dr. Gutierrez) was thorough, kind, and very knowledgeable, which was a great start. Then Dr. Gutierrez came in to conduct the examination and assess what work needed to be performed. The sincerity she exhibited for my well being was admirable and her exceptional skill became immediately evident. I've been to several of the top dentists in Southern California, and this was by far the most impressive experience. Their price point was reasonable, the building was quite nice, and the level of care is top notch. In addition, the hygienist Stephanie was fantastic. She approached your cleaning with the perfect balance of gentleness and rigorousness. The photo studio for before and after pictures was very useful for me to see the huge difference. If you need a new dentist, this is the place. They've gained a lifelong patient in me! I hate going to the dentist. Not because I'm scared, but because I despise mouth and dental related pains. I don’t have high tolerance for pain, dental pain for whatever reason is 10 times more, but I did full sets of veneers and didn’t feel any pain! I highly recommend Majestic Smile Studio and Dr. Gutierrez and her team.
