Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is performed on a tooth when the cavity has reached the nerve in the center of the tooth so as to prevent further destruction of the tooth and prevent an infection from taking place. If left untreated the bacteria in the cavity will invade the nerve space and an infection will ensue that will travel through the root of the tooth into the jaw bone and turn into an abscess.
These types of infections can become very dangerous if left untreated. Dr. Leo Aghajanian, dentist in Glendale, uses the highest standards of care with the latest state of the art materials and techniques to ensure the best outcome for his patient’s root canal therapy.
