Irvine, CA, March 26, 2019 – Sedation and Implant Dentistry Irvine is now accepting new patients, with or without a referral, for root canal retreatment at their Orange County location. Kimberly McLachlan D.M.D., MSED, MBA is highly-experienced, Board Certified Endodontist in Irvine, CA, and understand the importance of retreatment when prior procedures are not effective. It is important to receive endodontic care from a qualified endodontist who is thoroughly trained and has a high level of treatment success.
According to the American Association of Endodontics, more than 15 million root canals are performed each year and endodontists perform around 25 of them each week compared to general dentists who perform fewer than two. Dental and endodontic professionals recommend root canals when the pulp of a tooth becomes infected and highly sensitive. There is a good chance that a patient may need a root canal if they have persistent tooth pain, swelling around the gums, and increased sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks. Pain that worsens when lying down is another common symptom of inflamed tooth pulp that requires treatment.
Root canals may need to be retreated when initial care fails due to salivary contamination inside the tooth, or incomplete treatment of narrow canals, among other complications. Endodontic treatment can heal the tooth in an effort to avoid tooth loss.
Patients experiencing swelling and discomfort due to a failed root canal or who need a root canal are encouraged to call Sedation and Implant Dentistry Irvine at (949) 424-5137 to schedule a treatment or retreatment procedure.
