Experiencing persistent tooth pain, sensitivity to hot or cold, or swelling in your gums? These symptoms could be indicative of a dental problem that demands immediate attention. At the California Center for Implant Dentistry, our expertise lies in offering exceptional San Jose root canal therapy to relieve discomfort and safeguard natural teeth.

Root canal therapy, or endodontic treatment, is a remarkably successful procedure for preserving a tooth with a compromised or infected pulp. Our skilled dental experts in San Jose are committed to rejuvenating both your smile and dental well-being with meticulous attention and expertise.

Understanding Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a dental procedure designed to address and salvage a tooth with severe pulp damage or infection. It entails the extraction of the afflicted or injured pulp, followed by a meticulous cleaning and disinfection of the tooth's inner chamber. 

Subsequently, the tooth is sealed to thwart any potential further infection. It's important to dispel common misconceptions as this procedure is remarkably painless and is a pivotal means to conserve your natural tooth, eliminating the need for extraction.

Signs You May Need Root Canal Therapy

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it's crucial to seek professional dental care promptly:

  • Severe Tooth Pain: Persistent, throbbing pain is often a clear sign that the pulp inside your tooth is compromised.
  • Sensitivity: Heightened sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, particularly when the sensation lingers after the stimulus is removed.
  • Swelling and Tenderness: Swollen gums and tenderness around a specific tooth can indicate an underlying issue.
  • Darkening of the Tooth: A tooth that has darkened in color may indicate pulp damage.
  • Pimple on the Gums: The presence of a pimple-like bump on your gums can be a sign of an abscess, which requires immediate attention.

Ignoring these symptoms can lead to more significant problems and may result in the need for more invasive treatments. Therefore, it is essential to consult with a skilled dentist as soon as you notice any of these signs.

Our Root Canal Therapy Process


We will start with a comprehensive examination and evaluation. Our highly skilled dental professionals employ cutting-edge imaging techniques to assess the scope of damage to your tooth, establishing whether root canal therapy is warranted.


Upon confirmation of the diagnosis, we will arrange your root canal therapy session. Throughout the procedure, our dental team will:

  • Administer Local Anesthesia: We ensure your comfort by applying local anesthesia to numb the treatment area.
  • Safely Remove Affected Pulp: With precision and care, we extract the infected or damaged pulp from the tooth.
  • Thoroughly Clean and Disinfect: We meticulously cleanse and disinfect the tooth's interior to eradicate any residual bacteria.
  • Securely Seal the Tooth: We expertly seal the tooth to avert future infection and reinstate its structural integrity.


Once the root canal treatment is finished, we'll explore choices to enhance your tooth's functionality and aesthetics. Typically, we apply a crown to reinforce the treated tooth, ensuring both its strength and a natural look.


Routine follow-up visits are crucial for overseeing the healing progress and securing the effectiveness of your root canal therapy. We will maintain a close partnership with you to safeguard your ongoing dental well-being.
