Every tooth has a vital structure called the pulp. It carries nerves and blood vessels. Any pain or sensitivity in the tooth is because of the triggering of the nerves and blood vessels in the pulp. When a tooth is infected, the bacteria start to damage the tooth and invade inside the tooth structure. Once they reach the pulp, the bacteria will kill the pulp tissue and can cause swelling and throbbing pain. Other conditions like trauma, fracture of the teeth, and night grinding can also expose the pulp to the outer environment. In these conditions, root canal treatment is performed to try and save the original tooth.
In root canal treatment, first the infected pulp is completely removed. Next, the canal is cleaned, sterilized and shaped. Finally, the canal is filled with the most biocompatible material so that the tooth will not get infected or cause trouble again. This is an appropriate technique that can be used to preserve a natural tooth so that it can serve its purpose. Preserving the natural teeth is always ideal to maintain the supporting teeth and corresponding structures. It is mandatory to come back for a crown on the root canal-treated tooth for it to regain its strength otherwise the tooth will most likely break at some point. Both the root canal and associated crown can usually be completed within 2 to 3 visits.
Although root canal may sound complex, our root canal specialists are highly experienced and know how to make you feel comfortable and handle any complexity with ease. In our dental office, we use also microscopes and high-end technologies to get the best outcome for root canal treatment.
Dr. Dobee IS AMAZING, she helped me with my deep clean and continued to follow up with me afterwards to make sure I was experiencing minimal pain throughout the recovery process. She really cares about her patients and I HIGHLY recommend her!
Wow Dr. Dobee is by far the best dentist I've ever been to. She's not only really intelligent and knows exactly what she's doing but she's also very funny and makes the whole experience of going to a dentist a really great one.
I couldn't be happier with my care at Dr Dobee's office! Everyone there is amazing and thanks to Dr Dobee I am no longer afraid of the dentist. Especially thanks to Des at the front desk for making all my visits seamless. Love you guys!
Best dentist I've had and so glad I found her…outstanding in her field but also great interpersonal skills and sensitive to her patients needs. Staff Joanna and Des are professional and make patient feel comfortable and welcomed. I enjoy my visits and it is because the staff and Dentists are ON IT!
I had some problems with my insurance which the front desk took care of and they were super friendly while waiting for responds regarding my insurance. My visit was very informative also the treatment plans weren't pushed and forced like other dentists do. So they're going to be my place for dental treatments from now on!
I'm so fortunate to have found dr Dobee !
She's a beautiful soul! Very caring & professional !
Very trusting ! I have had the bad luck to get bad dentistry practiced upon my teeth , Dobee has been do everything she can to help me out with the budget I have . Her work is worth every penny !
Dr. Dobee has a heart of gold and the skills of an amazing dentist. I had the pleasure of having her take care of my teeth and make solid recommendations on what I need for future work. I walked out with super clean teeth and a well taken care of smile.
I came here because of the yelp reviews and they didn't disappoint. Great availability and friendly staff.
A trip to the dentist you will actually enjoy! It's the first time I've ever looked forward to my next dental appointment. I mean what dentist do you know that's had a private dinner with Obama??
