Endodontic therapy (or root canal therapy) is performed when a tooth becomes significantly damaged, infected, or decayed. When patients require root canal therapy, one of the endodontic specialists associated with our Laguna Beach office comes in to perform the procedure. This allows you to receive the care you need in the environment you are comfortable with. Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Stein will place a dental crown over the tooth to protect it from further damage. If you notice any discomfort in your teeth or gums, call our office today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Stein so we can get you back to optimal oral health through restorative dentistry.
