Root Canals in Tijuana

Root canals are gaps within roots of teeth. It consists of the pulp chamber (the center of the tooth made up of tissue and cells), the canal and branches that connect root canals. At Trust Dental Care, we often see patients who have an infected nerve or damaged pulp. Our root canal specialists (endodontist) have many years of advanced training and experience. Led by Dr. Cirenia Miranda, our dentist chief can determine if a root canal is right for you. We offer 75% off the same procedures done in the U.S. and Canada.

What are the symptoms?

  • Gum or tooth pain, discoloration, or prolonged sensitivity to temperature.
  • A tooth that is tender when is touched.
  • A tooth abscess.
  • Pus drainage in your mouth.

Why get root canal treatment?

A root canal procedure is not nearly as painful as one might imagine. Our sedation experts provide painless anesthesia during the process.

To understand why a root canal is necessary for the treatment of a decayed tooth, it is important to understand the anatomy of a tooth.

A tooth contains a soft region in its center known as the pulp or pulp chamber. The nerves inside a tooth are located within the pulp chamber, containing blood vessels and connective tissue that adds structure, and provides nutrients to the tooth.

After a tooth separates from the gums, the nerve is no longer necessary for the health of the tooth, and functionality is not altered in any way.

When a tooth is decayed, the nerve and the pulp located in the center of the tooth may become irritated, inflamed or infected as a result. This type of irritation can occur after repeated dental procedures, a crack in the tooth, trauma to the face, or a crack in the cusp of the tooth.

When there is damage to either the nerve or to the pulp, an infection may occur as the result of bacteria and the deterioration of debris within tooth’s center. This infection may spread and form a pocket at the end of the tooth that will fill with pus. Such a pocket is known as an abscess.

This type of infection can result in swelling of the face, neck or head. It can lead to bone loss around the root tip, leading to loosening of the tooth in certain cases. If there are problems with drainage as a result of the abscess or infection, a hole or tract may form, traveling through the side of the tooth. This tract may drain into the gums or through the cheek onto the skin.

Root canal therapy is one of the most popular services at Trust Dental Care; our specialist will perform a thorough examination to determine if you need a root canal.
