Root Canal

What is a root canal?

Dr. Lee is an experienced root canal dentist located in Rowland Heights, CA. At Plaza Dental Group, we provide focused root canal treatment. Root canals are one of the most common dental treatments performed. By Dr. Lee performing this treatment, it can save your natural teeth and prevent you from needing dental implants or bridges.At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. In our Rowland Heights dentist office, Dr. Lee will treat the infection which can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Patients can identify symptoms of the infection through visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.If you experience any of these symptoms, Plaza Dental Group dentist, Dr. Lee, will most likely recommend non-surgical treatment to eliminate the diseased pulp. Dr. Lee will treat the infection by removing the injured pulp and thoroughly cleaning and sealing the root canal system. If your tooth is not able to receive endodontic treatment, Dr. Lee will inform you at the time of consultation. Upon completion of the procedure, you will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.
