Root Canal Therapy

It is prescribed when there is a threat of infection and the tooth
needs protection before it's contaminated. 

When do you require a root canal?

An infected tooth should be treated immediately. If it isn’t, a tooth may stop functioning and require extraction. For more information on root canal therapy visit our root canal page!  If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, contact us for a consultation:

• Tooth Infection and Decay
• Minimal or Severe Pain
• Tooth Discoloration
• Swelling and Irritation in Gum Tissue
• Cracked or Chipped Tooth

What does the root canal therapy procedure involve?

Root canal therapy is done to remove all kinds of infection from the tooth. We usually suggest about two visits for completion of the therapy. During the first appointment, we remove the infected material and all abscesses are drained. The root canal is cleaned and shaped for a filling. A temporary filling is put in and left to settle. During the second visit, we once again check for traces of infection. If none are found, the tooth is permanently filled.  If you are in the San Diego Ca. area and are experiencing tooth pain give us a call and schedule an appointment at (619) 444-1001 or visit our contact us page to schedule an appointment via email.



Wisdom teeth are your third molars that are typically removed during one's
teenage years; however, this is not always the case. If the teeth emerge and
do not affect the position of other teeth or one's bite, they may be left alone
as long as they can be cleaned and taken care of properly.

When you require wisdom teeth removal?

If your dentist determines that your wisdom teeth are impacted, you may require surgery.
Symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth include:

• Jaw Pain
• Swelling
• Bleeding Gums
• Difficulty Opening Mouth

Wisdom teeth extraction is performed at Dental Arts San Diego, under the care of dental professional and Dr. Nawrocki is available to answer all your questions before the procedure.  For more information on Wisdom teeth extraction check out our wisdom teeth page!
