Dr. Glick Saved My Tooth with a Root Canal

“I came to Dr. Glick as a new patient with tremendous tooth pain. He gave me an appointment right away even though I was not a regular patient and he told me that my tooth was infected under the gums so I had to make a choice. Did I want him to pull the tooth or do a root canal? A root canal sounded scary but Dr. Glick answered all my questions and convinced me that it was my best option. He numbed the area and went to work and I can honestly say it wasn’t any worse than getting a filling in the end. Now I have a beautiful crown where the bad tooth was and no more pain!”

Tools for Quality Root Canals

At Craig Glick DDS, we don’t necessarily invest in every new high-tech dental gadget that comes on the market. But we do make an effort to stay up to date with the tools needed to provide you with excellent dental care. For example, when it comes to root canals we may use new technologies such as digital imaging and motorized cleaning files. Using digital imaging allows us to get a detailed look at the tooth to check for fourth roots and ensure every last bit of infected tissue is removed. Using motorized cleaning files improves the speed and effectiveness of the treatment so that you can begin living a life free of tooth pain as soon as possible. Call us at (818) 305-6410 to learn more about why you should trust Craig Glick DDSto provide your root canal therapy.

Signs You Might Need a Root Canal in Encino

As long as the enamel and dentin covering your tooth remain intact, they can protect the nerves and tissue within the tooth. But if tooth decay or injury damages these protective materials, you can develop an infection that will require treatment through a root canal. Signs of infection include pain, swelling and increased temperature sensitivity. The pain you experience may be constant, or it may only flare up when you touch the infected tooth or attempt to chew. Some patients may even develop an abscess, which looks like a lump on the gum line and is a sign of a serious infection. If you notice any of these symptoms, be sure to visit Dr. Glick right away so that he can provide the necessary root canal therapy.

Root Canals Explained

Dr. Glick excels at putting patients at ease by explaining various treatments to them and proving that there is nothing to fear. When it comes to root canal therapy, Dr. Glick always takes care to allay all your fears and answer all your questions before beginning treatment. The goal of root canal treatment is to remove all infected tissue from your tooth and then seal up the area to prevent re-infection and the recurrence of pain. The first step is to drill a small hole down into your tooth’s pulp chamber. All the tissue inside the tooth, including the nerves, will be extracted through this hole. The empty tooth chamber will be sanitized and filled with an inert material to stabilize, strengthen and seal it. Afterwards, a custom crown will be placed to seal the tooth and restore its functionality.

Don’t Postpone Your Root Canal in Encino

It never pays to procrastinate in matters related to your oral health. Painful dental conditions seldom get better on their own and usually become more severe the longer you go without treatment. So as soon as you begin experiencing any level of tooth pain, it’s important to schedule a visit with your dentist in Encino right away. When you seek treatment early, Dr. Glick can often provide you with more options for relieving your tooth pain and restoring the functionality of the tooth. For example, you might be able to get a filling instead of a root canal, or a root canal instead of an extraction, if you visit Dr. Glick before the decay has a chance to spread too far. While we encourage you to seek treatment early, we will of course always be here to help. Call us at (818) 305-6410 to set up your appointment.

Dr. Glick is the best. He's been my dentist for about ten years and is highly skilled and proactive in his approach. I only recently got dental insurance, but even before, his prices were always reasonable for cleanings and the one time an old sealant needed replacing. They only do x-rays when appropriate and have never billed me for anything that was unnecessary. His office staff is friendly and the hygienists are extremely competent. Trust is such a key when finding care, and I'm lucky to have found such a good dentist. Needless to say, I would highly recommend.

Dr. Glick and his staff will take excellent care of you! They are thoughtful and careful and are always accommodating and flexible with time scheduling. I don't fear going to the dentist anymore!

...We got there and filled out paperwork, etc, and then my boyfriend was taken in. He said that he really liked Craig and that he was very helpful and nice. My boyfriend gets very anxious about these kinds of situations, so for him to say that he was okay and not freaking out is a good sign. It turns out he had an infection and needed his tooth pulled, so they did that right after. The whole thing was really quick and they got the job done fast. Our appointment was at 8:30am and I think we left at something like 9:30am...
