When a tooth becomes significantly decayed or damaged, root canal therapy may be your best option for restoring oral health. Unlike extraction, which requires completely removing the natural tooth and could cause future problems, root canal therapy gives us the opportunity to save your natural tooth without adversely affecting the surrounding teeth. Dr. Quibilan may recommend root canal therapy if one or more of the following is present:
- An abscess or infection inside the tooth
- Decay inside the pulp of the tooth
- Significant injury
In most cases, we can perform root canal therapy in just two visits to our office in Sunnyvale. Thanks to Dr. Quibilan’s gentle, experienced hand, root canal therapy is often a comfortable, pain-free experience. After the treatment, a dental crown will be placed on the treated tooth for additional protection, aesthetics, and function. If you experience any dental discomfort, contact our office immediately to receive the care you need. We are dedicated to your oral health and will do all we can to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.
