Root Canal Therapy in Encinitas, CA

Rescue Your Teeth & Restore Your Health With A Root Canal

If your teeth become severely injured or decayed, extraction may start to seem like the only option. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be! Root canal therapy can often rescue your teeth, restoring their health and shape and allowing you to maintain a smile that’s wholly natural. During the procedure, one of our experienced dentists will carefully and gently access the inner chamber of your tooth. He will remove diseased pulp and bacteria and then clean the area thoroughly to minimize the risk of further infection. If your tooth has lost any structure because of disease or damage, we can place a new restoration such as a dental crown to strengthen and save it.

In the past, root canals have gotten a reputation for being painful procedures, but modern technology in the field of dentistry has changed all that! Our Encinitas root canal dentists can ensure that your procedure is entirely painless, and we will help you to minimize any discomfort after you return home, as well. If you feel very anxious about your root canal, we also offer relaxation techniques and sedation dentistry options to help put you at ease. At McElroy Smiles By Design, your comfort is as much a priority as your dental health!

When you feel ready for a pain-free dental experience, schedule your appointment with our friendly and experienced Encinitas dentists. Call 760-230-6638 or click here to request your appointment today!
