Root Canal Treatment in Temple City, CA

What is root canal treatment?
A root canal is performed with the objective to save your tooth, eliminate your pain, and restore your beautiful smile. It may be necessary to get a root canal when the nerve of the tooth is infected. This can occur for several reasons, including decay, trauma, deep fillings, or for an unexplained reason. Therefore, the tissue must be removed and the canal must be cleaned.

Why root canal?
Root canal therapy is done to prevent discomfort and stop infection, while allowing you to keep your tooth. It is often the best way to relieve pain yet preserve the damaged tooth.

Is a root canal scary?
