Root Canal Therapy

Historically, root canals have gotten a bad rap, but with all the advances in dental technology, a root canal no longer has to be the painful and “scary” experience of the past. In fact, root canals are performed with a more than 90% success rate.

Symptoms of possible root canal infection

Call Gallery Dental Arts right away if you experience any of these symptoms:

  • A tooth that is sensitive to touch or chewing
  • Tooth or gum pain or discoloration
  • Gum swelling or tenderness
  • Prolonged tooth sensitivity to heat or cold
  • Pus drainage in your mouth
  • Swelling or tenderness under your jaw in the lymph nodes

Dangers of untreated root canal infections

Left untreated, a root canal infection can cause swelling in the face or neck, tooth loss, and infection draining into the gums, cheek or skin. An abscessed tooth is not only an oral health problem, it is dangerous to your general health as well: The infection can spread through the blood stream to other areas of the body.

Dr. Boyajian believes in doing everything possible to save a tooth and to preserve the natural look and feel of the tooth. The only alternative to a root canal is having the tooth extracted and replaced with a bridge, implant or partial denture – a far more expensive and time-consuming procedure than a root canal.

Gallery Dental Arts in Beverly Hills can help you determine the best way to save your tooth and your smile.

We invite you to call today to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Boyajian, one of Beverly Hills’ premier cosmetic, general and holistic dentists. It would be our pleasure to serve you.
