Two crowns, a root canal, and a cleaning later, and I found Cunning Dental to be not only affordable, but accommodating as well. These guys are the best! And I feel confident to continue on as a regular patient and schedule cleanings, now that I have accomplished some of the things I otherwise would have had to fly to Mexico to do. They not only provided me with great service, they educated me every step of the way, so I also feel smarter about how I can better maintain my mouth.

What is a Root Canal?
At the center of your tooth is what dentists call pulp. Pulp is a collection of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues that help build the surrounding tooth. Deep cavities, broken teeth, repeated dental procedures, and trauma to the tooth can cause damage and infection of the pulp — a condition only root canal therapy can resolve. Here at Cunning Dental, we regularly perform a root canal endodontic treatment to save our patients’ teeth.
Why is Treatment Needed?
The consequences of neglecting a root canal infection include:
Pus-filled pocket at the root (abscessed tooth)
Swelling that may spread to the neck, head, or face
Our process of relieving root canal pain involves these essential steps:
Determining the extent of infection via x-ray
Applying local anesthetic to numb the area
Creating a small opening in the tooth to access the infection
Removing the damaged pulp tissue (and nerve, if necessary)
Sealing the tooth with a filling or other restoration method
What are the Benefits of Root Canal Therapy?
Repairing the natural tooth with endodontic treatment has many advantages:
Maintains your natural smile
Eliminates pain when chewing
Restores bite force
Limits the need for ongoing dental work
Prevents excessive wear or strain of other teeth
What is the Success Rate of Endodontic Therapy?
Root canal treatment in Montclair, CA and its neighboring cities have high success rates. Approximately 90 to 95 percent of patients who undergo root canal therapy can expect a functional tooth after the procedure. The treated tooth should last for years or even a lifetime, provided that you maintain good oral hygiene and schedule routine visits at Cunning Dental. Our standard of excellence in dental care enables us to prevent the recurrence of infection.
