What is root canal therapy?
If you have injured or decayed teeth, it is common to have them addressed with tooth-colored fillings or a different type of replacement in the beginning stages. However, as the bacteria extends to the core of the tooth, also known as the pulp, root canal treatment is likely required to improve oral wellness and protect the tooth from removal. A root canal is an advanced service offered at Sunshine Dental to remove infected inner tooth tissue and improve the vulnerable tooth to restore oral health. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Bhavik Bhakta addresses abscessed or internally decayed teeth using gentle root canal treatment and offers sedation options to further enhance patient relaxation. When you suffer from a significantly painful or infected tooth, reach out to our Corona, CA facility at your earliest convenience to hear about the upsides of gentle root canal treatment.
