Have you ever heard the phrase ‘I’d rather have a root canal’ to describe something painful or unpleasant? At Marcos Ortega DDS, Cosmetic and General Dentistry, we perform root canal (endodontic) therapy routinely for our San Diego dentistry patients and many report minimal discomfort. San Diego root canal procedures have advanced significantly in recent years. For many California root canal patients, the procedure is no worse than getting a filling from your Marcos Ortega DDS dental professional.
At Marcos Ortega DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry, our goal is to help our Hillcrest, Mission Valley, Mission Hills and Bankers Hill root canal patients avoid the necessity of endodontic treatment in California by providing skilled dental care. However, if root canal therapy is necessary to preserve a tooth for one of our greater San Diego area root canal patients, we provide the most advanced San Diego endodontic treatment in California.
How do you know if you need a California root canal? See your Marcos Ortega DDS, Cosmetic & General Dentistry dental professional immediately if you experience tenderness or pain, hot or cold sensitivity, tooth discoloration, tooth injury, gum swelling, gum pain, or lymph node tenderness or drainage. However, for some San Diego endodontic patients, there are no symptoms. That is why it is crucial to visit your local San Diego endodontic dentist regularly for a thorough dental examination.
