Saving Teeth

Root Canals in YumaThis message from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ is about root canals. When a tooth is threatened by extreme decay, periodontal disease, or damage from an injury, a skilled dentist or endodontist must make a judgment call concerning the course of treatment. If the pulp of the tooth is infected or inflamed, a root canal is generally the only way to save the tooth.

During a root canal  (or endodontic treatment), the soft tissue in the root of the tooth is removed. This tissue contains veins, arteries and lymph vessels. Once the roots are taken out and widened, they are filled with a special rubber material.

The root canal is only the first step in the complete tooth restoration. After the root canal, without a crown, the tooth will become dry and brittle. The final procedures are the core build-up and crown.

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, services include root canals. We also offer dental implants and many other services. We have offices in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills. Schedule an appointment with us today.
