One Patient's Root Canal Experience with Our Pacifica Dental Practice

Pacifica Dentist Office

At Cabrillo Family Dental Care, we love our patients. We spend time investing in the comfort and wellbeing of our patients to ensure that every time they come through the doors, they have a pleasant and meaningful experience.

We'll let one of our patients describe his experience to you.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal procedure (also known as an endodontic procedure) is a specialized filling for the root of a patient's tooth. This treatment can save a patient's natural teeth, preventing them from having to get more expensive dental procedures, such as bridges or dental implants.

Root canals occur when the pulp tissue of the tooth is damaged or dead. This decay happens when the tooth becomes infected due to cracks or chips in the tooth, physical trauma or repeated dental procedures. These instances cause infections and symptoms that can include visible injury or swelling of the tooth, a heightened sensitivity to temperature or dull, throbbing pain in the affected tooth and gum area.

Root canal dental procedures thoroughly clean out the tooth so that the formerly occupied nerve area becomes cleansed and shaped before a filling is placed to seal it off. Once sealed, the treated tooth has to be restored with a post, core and crown to remain healthy and stable.

To many patients, a root canal can be a frightening and uncomfortable experience. That's why we put extra care into our Pacifica dental practice to make you as relaxed and pain-free as possible. Watch our patient discuss his experience.
