Root canal therapy is typically the most effective treatment for a tooth that has been compromised by decay or injury. When the inner tissue of a tooth has sustained irreversible damage, a root canal in San Jose therapy is often recommended to save the tooth, to help relieve a toothache and to resolve or prevent an infection. At the office of Zachary I. Boger, DDS, we provide precise and gentle care using state of the-art techniques and methods to ensure your maximum comfort throughout every dental procedure.
Underneath the outermost biting surface of your teeth are core tissues, nerves and blood vessels, referred to as the dental pulp. While the dental pulp plays an important role in the growth and development of your teeth, once a tooth is erupted and fully developed, it no longer requires the dental pulp to remain functional. During a root canal treatment, Dr. Boger will remove the damaged pulp, clean and shape the pulp chamber, then seal the tooth with inert material to prevent any subsequent problems or infection. Root canal therapy has a very successful outcome with ninety-five percent effectiveness in saving teeth. A tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy and restored can remain healthy and functional throughout your life. Once your root canal procedure has been completed, Dr. Boger will recommend the best way to rebuild the form and function of your tooth with the most aesthetically appealing and durable dental restorations.
