Root CanalAn Overview
A root canal is often the preferred treatment method when treating advanced tooth decay. Dr. Haddad will always try to preserve as much of the natural tooth as possible to help maintain the stability of the bite and jaw. Root canals allow Dr. Haddad to repair tooth decay without performing a tooth extraction. Root canals are a routine procedure done in the comfort of our Oxnard, CA dentist office.
While root canals often have a bad reputation for being a painful procedure, the reality is that most patients find it no more uncomfortable than a standard tooth filling. The pain associated with root canals comes from the infection itself. Advanced tooth decay can cause a considerable amount of pain in the tooth but once removed, patients generally experience almost instant relief.
