Saving Your Teeth with Modern Root Canal Therapy

April 30, 2024

From the moment you get your first tooth as a baby, it’s essential to take care of your teeth and gums. Even though dental enamel is the strongest substance in your body, your teeth can still be vulnerable to injury or decay. At Yu Smile Dental, we provide top-notch care to help you maintain a healthy, natural smile throughout your life.

With an impressive success rate of over 90%, root canal procedures have become the go-to treatment for saving teeth that are severely damaged by decay or injury. Root canals are often preferred over tooth extraction because they help preserve your natural dentition, which is crucial for both oral health and overall well-being. In fact, in the United States alone, approximately 15 million root canal procedures are performed every year.

At our office, we recommend a root canal procedure when the inner tissues of your tooth, known as the dental pulp, become irreversibly damaged or infected due to an injury, deep dental decay, or advanced periodontal disease. Although the dental pulp is necessary for a tooth to develop and emerge, it's not essential for a tooth to function properly once it has fully developed.

You can rest assured that your oral health is in good hands at our practice. Patient comfort and care are our top priorities. With the modern dental instruments and advanced techniques available today, having a non-surgical root canal procedure is often just as comfortable as getting a routine dental filling.

At the office of Yu Smile Dental, we're dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our services and how we can help you maintain a healthy, natural smile, give us a call today.
