Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a dental operation that involves replacing the damaged or infected nerve (pulp) of a tooth with a filling. The pulp is comprised of specialized dental cells, blood vessels, tissue fibers, and nerve fibers. It is located in the central hollow region of the tooth. The process is also referred to as endodontic treatment.

 

Causes of pulp infection or inflammation

 

  • Breakdown of a filling or crown
  • A deep cavity
  • Trauma
  • Gum disease
  • Crack or chip in the tooth
  • Extreme wear or erosion
  • Extensive dental work on the tooth

 

Signs and symptoms of pulp infection or inflammation

 

  • Unprovoked or spontaneous pain
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold drinks and foods
  • Pain when biting or chewing
  • Loosening of the tooth
  • Swelling of the gum near the affected tooth
  • Pus drainage that may resemble a “pimple” on the gums.
  • Facial swelling

Excellent experience with amazing results and truly wonderful staff all around! From the moment you walk into the office, you are greeted and the staff make you feel welcome and even calm the nerves. I am always so nervous when visiting dentists and the staff take the time to also explain what you are in for. I went in for a teeth whitening, something I have been so nervous about and Dr. Rhea Antolin is so calming and reassuring about the process. I could not believe how white my teeth were after one session so I decided to come back for another. You will not be disappointed with your results and the entire experience will be smooth and worth it!

Long story short. I’m travel through Texas had an infection in my molar and the pain was all the way up to my ear. The team did an extraction and cleaned it all out in no time at all. Pain free and back on the road.Staff was very specific with instructions for my after care. Staff made my family feel comfortable and kept them at ease with my progress.A+Facility equipment is current and cutting edge. A+Thank you guys so very much.

I just recently started coming to Garden Valley Family & Cosmetic dentistry and they are top notch. Even throughout this whole chaotic pandemic they still seem to get the job done so well while keep us and them safe. Garden Valley really goes the extra mile for their patients. I really recommend coming to them for any dental needs!
