This is a shout out to say thank you to Dr. Gustavo, Perla, Maggie & and all the other Channel, Islands dentistry, people! The cap on my front tooth randomly fell off at 9:30 in the morning yesterday I was in shock and couldn’t talk without that tooth and didn’t understand how it happened so I went straight to the Ventura Office where I go and Perla got me in right away. I was so surprised Dr. Gustavo took care of me with x-rays explanation and a positive plan for treatment before I left a short time later Perla had run out to the elevator to catch me with a next day appointment at their Newberry Park office parentheses which was fun to visit. Dr. Gustavo is so gentle and kind and very much an expert at giving shots! I am now awaiting a new crown. Thank you so much everyone at Channel Islands dentistry! That means a lot to have a dentist nearby that you can really count on!

Root Canal Dentist

If you’re experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity, you may need a root canal. At Oxnard Dentist, our team of root canal dentists is dedicated to providing safe and effective root canal treatments to relieve your pain and restore your oral health.

A root canal is a dental procedure that involves removing the infected or damaged pulp from inside your tooth. This procedure is necessary when the pulp becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, a cracked tooth, or repeated dental procedures. If left untreated, a damaged or infected pulp can lead to severe pain, abscesses, and even tooth loss.

Our root canal specialists are experienced in performing root canal therapy using the latest dental technology and techniques. We will work closely with you to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Our goal is to provide the highest level of care while ensuring that you experience minimal discomfort.

During a root canal treatment, our root canal specialists will remove the infected or damaged pulp from inside your tooth. They will then clean and seal the root canals to prevent any further infection or damage. Finally, they will restore your tooth with a crown or filling to ensure that it is protected and functional.

At Oxnard Dentist, we understand that root canal treatments can be intimidating. That’s why our root canal specialists will take the time to explain the entire process to you and answer any questions you may have. We want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout the entire procedure.

If you’re experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity, it’s important to schedule an appointment with a root canal specialist as soon as possible. Our team of experienced root canal dentists at Oxnard Dentist is here to provide safe and effective root canal treatments to help relieve your pain and restore your oral health. Contact us today to schedule your appointment and learn more about our root canal services.

Triggers Of Root Canal Symptoms

Two main reasons can cause this damage:

 •   When the tooth has received a strong blow and, whether it breaks or not, the tooth loses its vitality.

 •   Due to a cavity that has not been treated in time and the infection reaches the dental pulp.

Chewing pain or sudden pain

Chewing should not represent any discomfort if your teeth are healthy. Therefore, the fact that it hurts to chew is an indication that there is a problem. Even if you cannot see any alteration in your teeth or gums with the naked eye, but you still feel pain or discomfort when you eat, you may need a root canal.

Even without chewing, there are cases in which people who need a root canal treatment experience sudden sharp pains in one of their teeth.

One of the most common causes you may need a root canal for is after a trauma or a blow to one of your teeth.

It is possible that one of your teeth has broken and you didn’t realize it. If the trauma affected the tooth’s nerve, you will begin to notice discoloration changes in the tooth because the area is no longer receiving the same blood flow as before.

Gum inflammation

Root canal treatment is required when the root of the tooth is affected, as we already know, by decay or trauma. Being a problem in the pulp, it is usual that the gums or other soft parts surrounding the tooth become inflamed.

Inflammation in your gums may also indicate that you suffer from an infectious process in the root so that you will need a root canal more urgently.

Bad taste in the mouth and bad smell

If there is an infectious process affecting the root of your tooth and it is not taken care of in time, the infection can create an abscess with pus that will generate a strange taste in your mouth and halitosis. Root canal treatment provides the ideal cleaning and treatment to overcome these two uncomfortable symptoms.
