If you experience any of the following symptoms, Dr. Bryce Darden may perform a root canal in Glendora, California:

  • A pimple on the gums that will not go away

Dental pulp is the soft area of a tooth where the veins, nerves, and connective tissues are located. When the pulp of a tooth is infected, our dentists will perform a root canal to remove the pulp and bacteria.

To perform a root canal, our dentists will first take X-rays to examine the shape of your root canal. They will then drill an access hole into the infected tooth. Our dentist will use root canal files to clean the inside of the tooth all the way down the roots. After all of the pulp, bacteria, and debris have been removed, our dentist will seal the tooth with a sealer paste and a rubber compound. A filling is placed to close the access hole. Our dentist may decide to place a dental crown to support the tooth after root canal treatment.
