Stockton CA Root Canal Therapy

When a tooth has become significantly damaged or decayed, Dr. Nguyen may recommend root canal therapy to restore it. Unlike tooth extraction, which requires removing the natural tooth completely, root canal therapy allows Dr. Nguyen to save the natural tooth and restore health and function to your smile. Root canal therapy may be necessary if any of the following are present:

  • Decay inside the tooth’s pulp
  • An infection or abscess inside the tooth
  • Significant injury or trauma

Root canal therapy can be completed in just two visits to Nguyen Dental Practice. After the treatment is complete, Dr. Nguyen will place a dental crown on the treated tooth for additional protection and aesthetics. We invite you to contact our office today if you have questions about root canal therapy or restorative dentistry or if you are experiencing any dental discomfort.
