Root canals, root canal therapy and endodontics seldom have to be a painful experience.
Endodontist Dr. Mohammad Khandaqji, DDS uses state of the art root canal therapy meant to free you of pain, discomfort and remove the risk of tooth loss in San Ramon. Much depends upon the condition of the tooth, the degree and duration of involvement, and the individual’s own body reactions. We have the means to control any discomfort.
Here at Mona Lisa Smile Dental, we make every effort to provide for your comfort and well-being. While treatment is relatively painless, at times tenderness or even swelling can occur between visits. Although these reactions tend to prolong treatment, they do not necessarily alter the chances for success, nor do they occur routinely. A tooth will not be treated unless there is a very good chance for success. While there is no certainty concerning healing, we expect proper healing to occur in approximately 87% of cases. With proper root canal therapy and endodontics as well as subsequent restoration to function, such teeth can be expected to remain useful and functional for a very long time. Our proven rate of success is so consistently high that no patient need feel he or she is taking an unnecessary risk in attempting to save a diseased tooth.
