Root Canal Treatment in Brentwood, CA

At Fairview Dental, we can provide a root canal treatment when a tooth’s inner pulp becomes infected. This type of treatment allows us to repair the tooth and save the existing structure.

Underneath a tooth’s hard exterior is a soft tissue known as the pulp. The pulp extends down to the root tip in the jawbone and contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues. This material is very vulnerable, and when it does become damaged, it can result in serious pain and even tooth loss. This type of infection is often caused by a deep cavity or an injury. When this happens, a root canal procedure can be used to restore the tooth.

Some signs that a root canal may be necessary include:

  • Severe toothache
  • Temperature sensitivities
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Recurring swelling and abscess on the gums

During a root canal, specialized dental tools are used to access the pulp from the top of the tooth and clean out the tooth removing infected and damaged pulp material. We then flush the root canals with an antimicrobial liquid. Finally, we seal the tooth with medicated fillings. In order to protect the tooth, it will be covered with a dental crown.

Root canal treatment can help you maintain your natural smile while being able to chew and talk with ease. With the proper care, most teeth that have undergone root canal treatment can last a lifetime.

If root canal treatment looks like the option for you, give our office a call at (925) 255-1485 to schedule your appointment.

Katherine C.

"Highly recommend Dr Luu as your dentist. I had major pain on one tooth and called in to see if they could see me the same day. They told me to go in right away. Very friendly staff and Dr Luu explained the treatment I needed. I left his office with no pain. I will be going back."

Aseret D.

"Very friendly and professional. Dr. Luu is a great dentist. My daughter got her wisdom teeth pulled out and he took good care of her. I even called after hours and he answered us and helped us right away. All the staff is great. Very clean place."
