Root Canal Therapy in Los Angeles, CA
Your natural teeth are composed of several distinct layers – there’s the outer protection of the enamel, a layer of more sensitive dentin underneath, and finally a safely hidden pulp. If a patient experiences a traumatic dental injury or infection that’s severe enough to reach this vulnerable pulp layer, extraction becomes a very real risk. Thankfully, Dr. Les Latner offers root canal therapy here at Westside Dental Associates as an effective technique for revitalizing and preserving badly decayed teeth.

Is root canal therapy painful?
Our team is asked this question constantly, and we’re happy to be able to tell you that today’s advancements in dental technology and comfort have helped root canal therapy become no more uncomfortable than a regular filling. The procedure is simple – Dr. Latner will access the tooth’s inner chamber and remove the infected pulp as thoroughly as possible, replacing it with a safe, biocompatible substance. In most cases, we will also recommend a custom restoration to rebuild and protect the treated tooth.
