dentistry-34-300x200At Hearty Smiles Dental in Westminster, we are happy to offer root canals. Call us at (714) 839-7979 to schedule an appointment for a root canal.

A root canal is a procedure used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. Although normal tooth decay can become increasingly worse and eventually lead to a root canal, often times blunt trauma can cause the tooth to die as well.

During a root canal, we will remove the dead nerve from the tooth and then seal it off to prevent another infection or abscess from forming around the tooth. If the nerve is not removed the infection will continue to climb deeper into your gums, often causing swelling, pain, and discomfort without a root canal.

If you think a root canal could benefit you, please contact us today. We have a wealth of information on root canals.
