WHY A MICROSCOPE?
Microscopic root canal treatment is performed by our specialists and uses a magnification of 25x to see details that are impossible to see with the naked eye.
The use of a microscope with a trained root canal specialist can lead to finding roots that would otherwise go unseen and
untreated. Microscopic root canal treatments have consistently resulted in a better outcome because they allow for extremely detailed procedures.

“Hands down the BEST place if you have to have a Root Canal that I would recommend. I found this dental group on the internet after searching several places in Orange County. I loved the staff from the very first appointment! ALL were welcoming and very warm and friendly.” -A. R.
“I have now had two experiences with Irvine Endodontics, about seven years apart, once each with Dr. Mansouri. In a word, they are amazing. She performed my most recent root canal, and I felt no discomfort.”

Laughing gas is a great way to relax, is very safe, and wears off quickly. In fact, patients who use conscious sedation with laughing gas can drive themselves home after treatment.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Root canal treatment is the removal of infected pulp from the pulp chambers and root canals of your tooth. Pulp is the innermost layer of your tooth and contains nerves and blood vessels, while tooth roots are the bony structures below your gum line responsible for anchoring your tooth in place.
When tooth decay passes through the enamel (outer layer) and dentin (middle layer), it infects the pulp and causes inflammation and pain. Infected pulp can also be the result of periodontal disease, tooth fracture, or an extensive history of restoration. Once the pulp becomes infected, the only way to save the tooth from extraction is to perform a root canal.
Root canals first remove the infected pulp tissue, then clean the remaining pulp chamber and root canals to rid them of any lingering bacteria. Once the pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned, then a filling material is placed within the root canals and pulp chamber to prevent further infection by sealing the tooth. Finally, a dental crown is placed over the affected tooth to protect it from damage.
