Why Patients Near Laguna Hills May Need Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment may sound like a scary procedure but it is just as simple and routine as a filling. Dr. Leif Löberg of Löberg Professional Dental Corporation near Laguna Hills is a dentist who can perform oral surgeries such as these with ease—and while making sure patients are comfortable throughout the procedure.

Root canal treatment is necessary whenever the dental pulp inside the tooth has been affected. This may be due to an abscess, infection, trauma, or a deep cavity. When this happens, patients experience pain and discomfort that can only be addressed by removing the mass of tissues that house the nerves and blood supply.

Root canal treatment is done under local anesthetics and sedation if necessary. Sedative methods available through Löberg Professional Dental Corporation include IV sedation and oral conscious sedation, both effective at making patients comfortable before and during their treatment. Once patients are properly anesthetized, Dr. Leif Löberg will drill a small access hole in the tooth to begin the process. Using specialized tools and instruments, he is able to remove the dental pulp from the inside of the tooth. The area is cleaned out and disinfected before gutta percha, a rubber-like material, is placed and the tooth is filled with composite resin bonding to seal it off and keep bacteria from re-entering the tooth. Most teeth will also benefit from the placement of a dental crown over the top for added protection and strength.

Patients will find that they eliminate the discomfort they were feeling by having root canal therapy performed and are able to maintain their natural tooth structure. This treatment is the best way of addressing teeth that might otherwise need to be extracted. Root canal therapy is an effort to keep the smile functioning and allow patients to enjoy the beauty of a natural smile.

Dr. Leif Löberg may suggest patients consider root canal therapy if they are dealing with infection, the development of an abscess, large cavities, or trauma that directly affects the health and wellness of the dental pulp. Patients who believe they need to undergo treatment are welcome to contact the Löberg Professional Dental Corporation today to book a consultation visit and examination.
