Modern root canal therapy in Madera, CA may be the answer to your painful symptoms. The good news is that root canals at Keledjian Dental mean an easy experience and quick recovery.

Let’s look at a few signs that point to you needing a root canal.

  1. Gum pain or a toothache
  2. Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold
  3. Swelling in the face or jaw
  4. Bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth
  5. A blister or bump on your gum

While these signs suggest you may need a root canal, our top Madera, CA dentist will evaluate you quickly to make sure!

What Happens During a Root Canal?

Dr. Keledjian will make sure you’re thoroughly numb and relaxed before beginning your root canal therapy, which consists of removing the infected tooth nerve that is causing you so much agony. He will then close with a sturdy filling.

In some cases, especially if a root canal is complex, our dentist may suggest a dental crown to close your root canal. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that shores up a weakened tooth. It is designed to match your smile and help prevent a weakened tooth from breaking.

Root Infection Prevention

At Keledjian Dental, we recommend a good oral hygiene routine at home, which should include regular brushing and flossing.

It is also important to visit our dentist twice per year for a thorough exam and have professional teeth cleanings in Madera, CA every six months to help prevent the bacterial buildup that can lead to root infections.
