What is RCT?

In advanced tooth damages, because of decay, or trauma, vital tissues, and pulp chamber of the teeth can get involved. In such situations, all of the microorganisms of oral biofilm can penetrate inside the tooth. This penetration can cause infection inside the tooth, surrounding bone, and tissues.

In these circumstances, RCT is required to clean inside of the tooth and to seal canals. Therefore this treatment can close the best pathways for microorganisms, which can cause infection.

Our oral and dental health professionals ensure that this simple and more or less routine service is offered to your satisfaction.

Root Canals with Dr. Salek

While root canals have developed an exaggerated reputation, if the procedure is performed appropriately it is no more uncomfortable than a dental filling. As an expert in orofacial pain, Dr. Salek is not just any dentist in West Covina. He has provided decades of exceptional dental care to countless patients and has the know-how to make this routine procedure as comfortable as possible.

A pre-operation consultation is usually necessary for most patients prior to a root canal, at which point a plan will be set for your procedure. The good news about root canal procedures is that most patients can return to their normal lives the day after the procedure is completed. A follow-up appointment is often necessary to ensure that no infections have arisen and that healing is progressing well. Some minor pain and sensitivity may be present during the recovery phase but these can usually be handled easily with NSAID over-the-counter pain relievers.
