Root Canals in Quincy, California

Fast and Successful One-Visit Root Canal Treatment

Teeth that have been damaged or compromised by decay all the way to the inner nerve can be saved with root canal therapy.

What Is a Root Canal?

The term “root canal” refers both to the inside canals of a tooth (where the blood vessels and nerves are located) and the treatment that is needed when this part of a tooth becomes infected. When a tooth has been damaged or compromised by infection all the way to its inner pulp, these areas need to be completely cleaned out to remove the entirety of the infection. The tooth is then filled with a special rubber-like material and capped with a crown to protect it.

A root canal saves an infected tooth. Our doctors make sure to find and treat every canal to eradicate the infection completely.

Efficient and Effective Treatment

We see many patients who have root canals that were handled elsewhere and not treated adequately. This can happen when a dentist does not find and clean out all of the canals inside an infected tooth. We go above and beyond to find all the hidden canals inside your tooth and ensure they are fully treated. Our doctors have the skills to identify where hidden canals might be and use our 3D CT scanner to find them. They then use high magnification to ensure those hidden or split canals are completely cleaned out. With this, we can effectively handle even the most difficult endodontic problems (“endodontics” refers to treating the interior areas of teeth).

We also handle retreatment of failing root canals, including apicoectomies (the removal of a diseased portion of a tooth root) and retrofill restorations (sealants at the end of tooth roots).

It is vitally important to treat all the canals of an infected tooth, even the smaller lateral canals that extend from the main canals like a river delta. Our doctors ensure that even the tiniest and most hidden branches of these canals are fully cleaned and treated to completely eradicate the infection.

If you've been referred to an endodontist for a root canal, but the doctor's office is located inconveniently far away, give us a call and find out how we can help you get the care you need.

Signs of Needing Root Canal Therapy

Are you experiencing any of the following?

  • Pain when chewing or biting
  • A lingering toothache that may throb when coming into contact with hot or cold foods
  • Pain in your teeth so intense it wakes you up at night
  • Swelling of the gums which, when pressed, may release blood or pus
  • Pain that starts in one tooth and spreads to other regions of the jaw or head—an infected lower molar (back tooth) may even cause you to feel pain in your ear!
