All about Root Canals with Dr. Mohamed Ali
Root canals are performed to repair and save teeth that may be infected or decayed. Without repair to the decaying tooth, a patient can also experience many other symptoms, including:
- Swelling around the neck, head, gums, and face
- Bone loss around the root tip of the tooth
- Drainage issues beyond the tooth root
- Painful toothache
- Sensitivity of teeth to hot and cold items
During an initial appointment, Dr. Mohamed Ali will assess your x-rays to identify any issues surrounding the root canals. If a root canal is needed, then Dr. Ali will explain the entire procedure from you from start through recovery.
We only use the latest technology and techniques to ensure that our patients can recover quickly, and have a beautiful and healthy smile. During the procedure, Dr. Ali will anesthetize the area around the tooth that requires the root canal. This allows for maximal patient comfort, and Dr. Ali will continually check in with you to ensure that you are comfortable and feel at ease. The pulp, bacteria, and decayed nerve tissue will be removed from the tooth, and a cleaning solution is used to flush debris away. After the cleaning is complete, the tooth is sealed so that no bacteria can grow in the tooth.
