Safeguarding Your Smile with Modern Root Canal Treatment

June 10, 2024

From the moment a baby's first tooth emerges, it's essential to protect and preserve the health of their smile. Despite dental enamel being the hardest substance in the body, teeth can still be vulnerable to injuries and dental diseases. At Yu Smile Dental, we provide expert care to help our patients maintain a healthy, natural smile throughout their lives.

With an impressive success rate of over 90%, root canal procedures remain the most effective means of saving and retaining teeth that have been severely compromised by decay or trauma. As opposed to tooth extraction, root canal therapy is widely recommended because it supports overall oral health and well-being. In fact, in the United States alone, approximately 41,000 root canals are performed daily and close to 15 million annually.

Protecting Your Tooth's Core with Root Canal Therapy

At our dental office, we recommend a root canal procedure when the vital tissues within your tooth's core become irreversibly damaged or infected due to injuries, deep dental decay, or advanced periodontal disease. Although these inner tissues, known as the dental pulp, are crucial for a tooth's development and eruption, they aren't necessary for its continued function once it has fully emerged.

A Comfortable Experience with Modern Dental Tools

Rest assured that your oral health is in good hands at our dental office. Patient comfort and care are our top priorities, and with the modern dental instruments and techniques available today, having a non-surgical root canal procedure can be as comfortable as getting a routine dental filling.

Maintaining Your Healthy Smile with General Dentistry

At our office, we offer a wide range of general dentistry services to help you maintain your healthy, natural smile. Some of these services include:

  • Regular dental checkups and cleanings
  • Tooth-colored fillings
