ROOT CANALS IN PHOENIX
As we age, teeth can take quite a bit of wear and tear. This can cause teeth to get diseased or damaged. Poor oral hygiene can also cause this issue if left uncorrected for too long. When this occurs, the inside of the tooth can become inflamed or infected for numerous reasons. In order to save the original tooth, a root canal may be utilized to remove the affected area inside the tooth known as the pulp.
When issues occur with a tooth such as a crack in a crown or similar problems, it can cause infection or inflammation to set into the pulp, or inside of the tooth. This can cause a great amount of pain or even an abscess on the tooth. This can be very uncomfortable and make it difficult to do basic tasks such as chew or even drink cold drinks.
In order to save the tooth, the infected or inflamed pulp, or inside of the tooth, is removed and thoroughly cleaned out. Once disinfected, the tooth is then filled with a rubbery type material called gutta-percha. Before finishing, and depending on the circumstances, the tooth will be finished off with a crown or filling. Fillings can either be made of amalgam or composite resin. Composite resin is the same color as the tooth and often ends up being the filling of choice.
HOW ROOT CANALS WORK
The most important aspect to point out about root canals is that they’re a great procedure to use when wanting to keep the original tooth. Root canals allow a patient to maintain their original smile and actually save the original tooth whereas, other options may include losing the original tooth altogether.

PATIENTS RECOMMEND US
What a great dental office. I was just in there today and the people are amazing! My oldest daughter and I were scheduled to get our teeth cleaned at the same time, but I had to bring my year and a half old daughter with us, it was daddy’s day while mommy had to run errands. They helped out so much so I could get my teeth cleaned until my oldest was done and she could watch her. Great people!
This place is awesome. The atmosphere is dope. The staff is very nice and friendly. The place is so inviting. The exams and cleanings are VERY THOROUGH. They don’t just clean and send you own your way. They ask questions and get to know YOU. This was the best dental visit I’ve ever had.
Dr. Arthur’s one of the best dentists I have amazing dental visits and the quality of work he does is outstanding. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a dentist. Thank you so much for all the great work.
