Root Canal Treatment

At Langston Amador Dental Group, we offer you a full range of oral care treatments to help restore the health and structure of your teeth. One of these treatments is endodontic therapy, more commonly known as root canal treatment.

The innermost part of your tooth structure is called the pulp. It is made of blood vessels and nerves. The pulp can get damaged and infected by bacterial exposure due to several reasons such as deep decay or trauma. An infection in the pulp causes pain and swelling in the tooth and can further lead to nerve death and tooth loss.

Root canal therapy can save the tooth from extraction and prevent further damage and infection. Although many patients fear root canal, we aim to perform this procedure with little-to-no pain, and when it is complete, you will find that you are far more comfortable than you were before.

The treatment involves making an opening in the tooth and removing the infected, inflamed or dead pulp tissue using special dental instruments. The root canals of the infected tooth are then flushed, cleaned and sterilized before shaping them and sealing them will a dental sealing material called gutta percha to prevent further infection.

Your tooth will likely require the protection of a dental crown after a root canal treatment to stabilize its structure and prevent fracturing. After the procedure, we will take impressions of your tooth and prepare a high-quality permanent crown restoration for you. While the permanent crown is being made, a temporary one will be fitted onto your tooth.

If you are experiencing sharp pains in your tooth or any other symptoms of a pulp infection, call our office at (954) 666-5657 for an evaluation now.

Our Happy Patients

"I had been having intense jaw pain, so I went to Dr. Langston and Dr. Amadors office for a consult. They diagnosed and explained the issue and game plan in a language I could understand. They made me a unique night guard that has taken my jaw pain symptoms away and probably saved my teeth! The cool thing is that the technology of the guard is both hard and soft making it very comfy. Thank you Dr. Langston and Dr. Amador for a great experience but more importantly the solution I needed."

"Not only are Dr. Amador and Dr. Langston two of the best dentists clinically but they are extremely down-to-earth and sincerely care about you. They make you feel like family and going to the dentist relaxing and actually enjoyable. Ok...Well as much as it could be at least... Haha. If you need a dentist in greater pompano beach look no further!"

"I have been a patient of Dr. Amador's for at least 15 years. I first went to him after bouncing from dentist to dentist most of my life. I found him and his entire staff to be extremely professional, honest, kind, friendly and caring. The prices are reasonable and he accepts insurance, which has been a great help over the years. Dr. Amador does not perform unnecessary procedures or inflate prices. The years have only increased my respect and affection for all these wonderful people. Not only do Dr. Amador and his staff keep up to date with all the latest in dental technology, they treat their patients like friends and family, and genuinely care about us."
