As dental procedures go, root canals have a bad reputation. That’s because most patients don’t realize the profound benefits of root canal therapy. Root canal therapy cannot only immediately relieve toothache pain and discomfort, but can also save your natural teeth from extraction. Make an appointment with the experienced family and restorative dentists of Blanco Circle for the root canal therapy you need today. Dr. Klugman and Dr. Bianco can compassionately perform your root canal therapy procedure. Blanco Circle Dental Care proudly serves families throughout Salinas, CA, Hollister, Monterey, Seaside, Prunedale, Marina, Greenfield, Gilroy, King City, and the surrounding areas.
What Is Root Canal Therapy?
During a root canal therapy procedure the dentist will remove infected pulp from the center of your damaged tooth to prevent the spread of infection to your surrounding healthy teeth. The pulp chambers or “canals” are then disinfected, shaped, filled, and sealed for protection. A successful root canal therapy procedure should eliminate any tooth pain and discomfort and save the tooth from developing an abscess or needing eventual extraction.
When Do You Need Root Canal Therapy?
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may need root canal therapy:
- Any level of localized tooth pain or discomfort ranging from just slight to extreme, with throbbing.
- Tooth pain that lessens or intensifies as you change position.
- Pain in response to chewing, biting, or pressing on the tooth.
- Completely spontaneous tooth pain.
- Pain triggered by hot or cold beverages.
- Pain that lingers for only a few minutes, before finally fading.
- Pain that last for hours on end.
- Pain that keeps you from having a peaceful night’s sleep.
Tooth infections can only worsen over time. Don’t wait until it’s too late to get your infected teeth treated. Make an appointment with Dr. Klugman and Dr. Bianco for the root canal therapy that can save your natural teeth. Blanco Circle Dental Care proudly restores smiles daily throughout Salinas, CA, Hollister, Monterey, Seaside, Prunedale, Marina, Greenfield, Gilroy, King City, and nearby areas.

Regardless of what you may have heard, root canals get rid of your pain; they do not cause pain. An infected tooth not only causes an immense amount of pain, but can be more of an expensive investment down the road if nothing is done. At Blanco Circle Dental Care, we want to make sure we take care of all of your dental needs, and Dr. Klugman and Dr. Bianco is able help you along that journey!
Having a root canal done not only helps in getting rid of your pain, but it also benefits your teeth. A root canal is performed when there is an infected or decayed tooth, and the decomposition has to be removed before it gets any worse. The doctors commence your root canal by accessing the infected tooth, and removing the pulp. When the tooth is infected, it also infects the pulp of the tooth, causing it to exacerbate. Once the pulp of the tooth is removed, our doctors will fill the tooth with a tooth-colored filling, and top it with a crown to prevent any further corruption. In the end, you’re left feeling refreshed and in better oral health!
When you leave your teeth infected, not only can your mouth get worse, but it can affect you in other areas of your body. By delaying getting a root canal, the bacteria infecting your teeth can enter your blood stream, possibly causing destruction to the rest of your body. It’s better to take care of your oral issues sooner rather than later or it may get worse! If you’re wondering how Dr. Klugman or Dr. Bianco can help you by performing a root canal, contact our office and make an appointment!
