Root Canal

A root canal is a dental procedure performed to treat the inner part of a tooth, known as the pulp, when it becomes infected or damaged. At Harmony Dental of Sherman Oaks, our skilled endodontists specialize in performing root canals with precision and care to save your natural tooth and alleviate pain.

Removing the Infected or Inflamed Pulp

During a root canal procedure, the infected or inflamed pulp is carefully removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected. The tooth is then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha to prevent further infection. In most cases, a dental crown is placed on top of the treated tooth to provide added strength and protection.

Our Experienced Dental Team

Contrary to common misconceptions, root canals are not painful but are actually performed to relieve tooth pain caused by infection or inflammation. Our experienced dental team ensures your comfort throughout the procedure by using local anesthesia and, if needed, sedation options to minimize any potential discomfort or anxiety.

If you are experiencing severe tooth pain or have signs of infection, such as swelling or sensitivity, contact Harmony Dental of Sherman Oaks to schedule an evaluation. Our skilled endodontists will assess your condition and determine if a root canal is necessary to save your tooth and restore your oral health.
