Root Canals

Toothaches are a vivid reminder that teeth aren’t just pieces of hard tissue floating around in the gums. They are intricately formed sensory organs with layers of dentin and enamel protecting a living pulp. Coursing through the tooth’s pulp is a vital bundle of nerves and blood vessels providing nutrients and sensation to each tooth. As long as the pulp stays healthy, you’re rarely aware of the systems at work.

Tooth pain can be especially alarming, but it’s meant to warn you that something’s not right. Pain tells us that the bundle of nerves and vessels inside your tooth is irritated, damaged, or under attack.

A deep cavity can give bacteria access to the inner nerve bundle. In some cases, a significant infection, called an abscess, may develop in your jaw without any symptoms at all. If Dr. David Choi and Dr. Andrew Choi determines that the nerve won’t recover or if an infection is present, then root canal therapy may be suggested.

Modern anesthetics provide powerful numbing for the gentle removal of the inflamed nerve inside the tooth. The nerve canal undergoes disinfection and careful shaping, and a sealer fills the internal space. A filling or crown over the tooth helps return the tooth to its original function.

Are Root Canals Safe?

Internet articles continue to circulate claiming adverse health effects from root canals, despite years of research proving otherwise. Many of these claims rest on false theories put forward decades ago without any scientific basis. In fact, one popular Facebook article sounding a false alarm shakily rests on a 100-year-old study tossed aside long ago.

The American Association of Endodontists stays abreast of all research and can support the safety of this vital service. In fact, new techniques and materials make root canal treatment more successful than ever.

Great & friendly staff that really pampers you. They treat you like a guest rather than like a transaction. What really sets them apart: technology (updated tools, giant screen for visuals, etc), check-in process, transparent doctors that clue you in about your dental health & procedures (11/10), the experience, and they have an air purifier everywhere!!!! I mean... not even my PCP has them. Wish we would've found them sooner!

I have not been to the dentist in a very long time and I was nervous to finally get a check up. I looked at the local business and this one caught my eye because of the great reviews. I scheduled a Sat appointment. I was able to sign in using a link and was seen right away. The staff was very nice and answered all my questions. I expressed to them I was nervous but they assured me there was nothing to worry about. My check up was quick and when it came down to understanding the charges for the procedures I had to undergo, the staff was very thorough and answered all my questions. I 100% would recommend this place. Dr. Andrews was very nice and I feel comfortable returning for my follow up visits and procedures.

Such a clean place! The parking is great! Brought in my oldest sister because she was in so much pain from her tooth. The staff was really friendly and compassionate. I had just got out a 12 hour shift from the hospital and the staff had coffee creamer and all coffee supplies readily available for their customers. I cannot wait to see if my insurance covers me so I can be a patient here as well! The staff here is amazing and the place seems very eager to give the best service to its patients.
