Despite their undeserved reputation, root canals are a very important part of dentistry. Before root canals, a tooth that became infected would have needed to be removed. But at Edward Moon, DDS, we can use a root canal to remove the diseased pulp and save the structure of your tooth. With modern pain management techniques, we can keep you comfortable throughout your treatment, and will work with you to find the best restoration for your smile. To learn if you could benefit from a root canal in Mission Viejo, California, call 949-348-1212 for an appointment today.
