Non surgical root canal therapy in Ontario, CA, at the office of Dr. Mukesh Patel, quickly resolves pain and may be the only way to “save” badly damaged or badly infected teeth.
Getting to the root of this common treatment
Contrary to the falsehoods you may have heard about root canal treatment, this nonsurgical approach to restoring the health and appearance of your teeth is safe, comfortable, fast, and has an exceptional track record . In fact, the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) reports that root canal therapy has a success rate of at least 90%.
Root canal therapy is a type of endodontic treatment. All endodontic procedures treat the inside of the tooth. “Endo,” after all, is the Greek word for “inside,” while “odont” refers to “tooth.” Root canal treatment is also a “standard” endodontic technique, and, as a nonsurgical approach, it is conservative when compared to surgical procedures such as apicoectomies.
Look at root canal treatment as a “deep cleaning” for the inside of your tooth. If it’s determined that we can restore your tooth with this procedure, Dr. Patel will first numb the treatment site for utmost comfort. We can also discuss other options to keep you feeling relaxed and comfortable. Once the tooth is fully numbed (ensuring you won’t feel anything), the root canals at the center of the tooth (the pulp) are accessed. The affected canals are sterilized so that no infected or inflamed tissue is present. The canals are then shaped and sealed off to help prevent reinfection.
The finishing “touch” is a dental crown. Typically, a temporary crown is placed to protect the treatment site as the permanent crown is fabricated by a dental ceramist skilled in making crowns and other types of restorations. Once the permanent crown has been made, you’ll return to Ontario Dental Center. Dr. Patel removes the temporary and checks that the new crown looks and feels natural and comfortable before fixing it securely to the underlying natural tooth structure. When restorations are well-designed and well-placed, you never think about them! They fit and function naturally.
Damage, such as inflammation and infection, doesn’t go away on its own. It requires intervention from a dental office that you can trust. Serving Chino, Montclair, Claremont, Rancho Cucamonga, Upland, Pomona, and the surrounding area, Ontario Dental Center looks forward to relieving the pain and other symptoms caused by deep oral problems that require root canal therapy. As a result, you can get back to your healthy quality of life and avoid other complications, including tooth loss and systemic infections.

Root canal therapy is a very common procedure. It has a reputation of being undesirable and painful, but when done properly, it is actually painless. Every tooth in your mouth is composed of a crown and a root. When a cavity or bacteria penetrates the tooth, the root and its nerves become irritated. As a result, the bacteria within the pulp cavity needs to be removed and cleaned in order to restore the tooth to which healthy state. Following the procedure, the tooth is fragile and consequently is restored with a natural crown for a lifetime of durability. Root canals have a success rate of 95% or greater. Most root canals are diagnosed by patients’ sensitivities to a specific tooth. Be sure to consult your dentist if any symptoms or discomfort occur.
