If you are struggling with soreness in your teeth, our team at Capital Dental Group recommends that you visit with our dentists for an exam. We may provide you with endodontic treatment if your teeth are badly damaged or infected. Please feel free to contact us today at 661-861-8000 to learn more about endodontics in Bakersfield, California, and schedule a visit with Dr. Wade Logan, Dr. Stephen Wilson, Dr. Sean Shay, Dr. Peter Bae, Dr. Don Kim or Dr. Jeffrey McCardle.
Endodontics is the specialty of dentistry focused on the health and treatment of the dental pulp. This is the innermost layer of the tooth and contains soft tissues, including blood vessels and nerves. Because of this, damage or infection of the dental pulp can result in pain and discomfort. And enough damage to the pulp can mean permanent damage to the tooth, eventually leading to tooth death and the need for an extraction.
We want to help you avoid losing your natural teeth whenever possible, so we work to help keep your dental pulp healthy. In the event of an infection, root canal therapy (the most common endodontic treatment) can help remove the infected tissue and preserve the health of the tooth. If you would benefit from a different endodontic treatment, we can help you understand your options.
