Advanced Endodontic Care
Providing exceptional endodontic treatment in La Habra, CA
What is Endodontics?
When bacteria, illness, or injury threaten your teeth and underlying structures supporting your teeth, endodontic treatments can help. Endodontic experts consider themselves “specialists in saving teeth” because of these specialized treatments. Endodontic services like root canal treatments can remove bacteria that damage the dental pulp, teeth roots, nerves, lymphatic tissues, and more. This not only stops the damage from getting worse but can even help you save damaged teeth.
At North Orange County DSC in La Habra, CA, we use advanced technology to see more of the bacteria affecting teeth and remove the problem more thoroughly. To perform these treatments, endodontists continue their education and training after dental school for three years. This allows endodontists to diagnose and treat conditions that specifically affect the teeth roots, pulp, and similar structures. Our endodontists have experience treating both simple and complex health issues affecting these innermost structures.
Our Endodontic Services
Endodontic services are designed to find and remove decay and infection that may be attacking teeth pulp, teeth roots, nerves, and other structures. At North Orange County DSC, we use dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology to create a 3-dimensional image of the area and get the closest look at the affected area. This allows us to remove more of the damage and design a minimally invasive treatment. Patients experience less pain, faster healing times, and a much smaller chance of a re-emerging problem.

We Use Advanced Technology to Provide the Best Care
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an advanced x-ray imaging technique that helps our endodontists to get the most accurate, detailed view of deep structures in the mouth. This allows us to detect signs of decay, disease, and injury that other x-ray techniques can’t. By creating a 3-dimensional view of the area, we get 360-degree visibility of the problem, so we can safely approach it from the right angle. This allows us to intervene sooner, helps us provide the most accurate diagnosis, and lets us design the best treatment options and strategies.
