Root Canal Treatment

The root canal procedure at Mid-Wilshire Dental Care in Los Angeles is painless and affordable.

Root canals are one of the preferred treatments for an infected, decayed or damaged tooth. When a tooth has undergone any of the aforementioned traumas, a dentist must care for the nerves and root. In many cases, a patient's natural tooth can be preserved with root canal therapy. If you are in pain, we will first give you a comprehensive dental examination. The team at Mid-Wilshire Dental Care will discuss with you your symptoms and potential treatment options. If a root canal is deemed necessary, the doctor will schedule your root canal procedure.
With modern techniques and technologies, once you are numbed with novocain, the root canal procedure is relatively painless. You will feel some pressure as the doctor cleans out the infected tissue and pulp and as decay is removed from the tooth. Once the procedure is finished and the tooth cleaned of infection, you will be fitted for a crown and a second appointment will be made. Your mold will be sent to the lab where a beautiful ceramic crown will be created. During your second appointment, your dental crown will be secured to your tooth, leaving you with a natural, beautiful healthy smile. Your new tooth will match the color of your other teeth and no one will be able to tell the difference! If you are in pain, give Mid-Wilshire Dental Care a call today. We look forward to stopping your pain and getting your health on track!

“Some people shudder when they hear the words ‘root canal’ - I know I did. However, when I had an abscess, I wanted that tooth out no matter what! Well, I’m certainly glad I went to Mid-Wilshire Dental Care. They said that they could not only stop the pain, but they wouldn’t need to pull the tooth. I was nervous about the root canal, but also happy to do it at the same time. And, ya know what? It wasn't that bad. The staff is very friendly and calmed my anxieties. The office is peaceful and really, after I was numbed, it was pretty painless. I would highly recommend that you go to Mid-Wilshire Dental Care… for any treatment, but especially if you are afraid of painful work. They will put your mind at ease.”
