Root Canal Therapy in Kenmore

Most dental services target the outside of teeth. Fillings, for instance, treat surface decay, while dental cleanings remove bacteria and plaque from the chewing surfaces of teeth and from around the gum line.

There are times, though, when more advanced care is necessary. Maybe one of your teeth has a deep cavity or has developed a fracture because of an injury. In both cases, bacteria can get inside the tooth and cause an infection to develop around the nerve. Signs that you might have an infection include:

  • Sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks
  • Severe toothache
  • Swelling or tenderness
  • Discoloration around the tooth

 If left untreated, it’s possible for you to eventually lose your tooth.

Thankfully, care is possible with root canal therapy. With a root canal, Dr. Amin Taba will go beyond the tooth's outer surface to provide care at the very center, eliminating your painful symptoms and saving both your tooth and the root underneath.

Why Is Saving Your Tooth Important?

Saving your tooth is important for a few reasons. First, a complete smile contributes to good oral health and well-being. When you're missing a tooth, nearby teeth can drift out of alignment over time. When teeth move out of alignment, bacteria have new places to hide and it becomes more difficult to enjoy a healthy diet. What's more, when you lose a tooth, you also lose the root that anchored it to your jaw. Losing your tooth root will eventually cause bone loss and even the loss of other teeth in the coming years.

Root Canal Therapy for Seattle and Beyond

During your root canal, Dr. Taba will gain access to the center of your tooth. Then, our team will remove the infected pulp and clean the surrounding chamber. Afterward, we will fill your tooth with a safe, biocompatible substance and cap it with a crown to prevent a new infection from developing in the future.

Are you experiencing any of the symptoms described above? Call Dr. Taba's dental office for an exam and consultation. During your appointment, we will assess your needs and recommend a treatment plan tailored exactly for you. If you need a root canal, Dr. Taba will explain how the procedure works and will answer any questions you might have. We don't want you to go into any procedure with unanswered questions. Our office offers effective root canal therapy to families from Seattle, Kenmore, Mill Creek, Bothell, Woodinville, Juanita, Lake Forest Park, Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, and other nearby communities.

I can always trust him to get the job done exceedingly well and ease my anxiety about being at the dentist."

"I came for a cleaning, exam, and X-rays while they were having a special. All three for $112! It had been over a year since I had been to the dentist and I had a few cavities that I was already aware of that would need to be filled. The cavities where confirmed during the cleaning and nothing else was noticed. Overall the cleaning and exam went great. They have a great staff on hand, a wonderful view of Lake Washington while relaxing in their massaging chairs. I was able to schedule a follow up visit for the cavities a few days after. This appointment was great as well! I will return for future dental work."
