Whether you live in Ladera Ranch, Cucamonga, or some far-flung locale, you know a root canal is one of the most dreaded dental procedures there is. But it doesn’t have to be that way. A successful root canal can save a tooth and prevent the need for an extraction.
If Dr. Lincoln Parker determines that you need a root canal, he’ll explain that root canals are performed to save an infected tooth. If the tooth goes untreated, abscesses and complete tooth loss may occur.
During the procedure, the tooth’s nerve and pulp are removed. Next, the interior is cleaned and disinfected. Then it is filling and sealed with a special rubbery material. Finally, the restored tooth is sealed with a crown or filling.
Root canals have the reputation of being painful, but this is not the case anymore. There are several effective pain management methods available today at Hales Parker Dentistry. From local painkillers and numbing agents to oral sedation, we will make sure you are comfortable during the procedure. Once the infected tissue is removed, focus turns to helping the oral site heal, which may require another visit.
Dr. Parker opened Hales Parker Dentistry in Ladera back in 2013. He is known throughout California as an outstanding dental care provider, including cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, and sedation dentistry.
In addition to general dentistry, we provide singular cosmetic dental services; everything from teeth whitening to complete smile transformations.
