A root canal procedure is needed when the inside of a tooth gets infected due to a crack in the tooth or decay. During the procedure, the pulp chamber of the tooth is accessed and cleared of infection. A dental crown may be added on top of the tooth after a healing period, to protect it. With the latest in technological advancements, including the CBCT Cone Beam and laser systems, we can deliver accurate diagnoses, more comfortable procedures and predictable results.
While traditionally thought of as painful procedures, root canals are meant to ease pain and restore health to an infected tooth. When possible, we believe in saving your natural tooth instead of extracting it. That is why we may recommend a root canal if you are experiencing any of the common symptoms of infection:
Too many people avoid dental treatments due to fear of pain. As an experienced endodontist, Dr. Tuong Nguyen Nguyen. has performed over 10,000 root canals and will work with you to provide a comfortable experience. With effective local anesthetic and laser technology, procedures are far more comfortable than in the past.

I found Dr. Nguyen’s office through my insurance. He took CBCT scans as well as x-rays for treatment. With new technology they’re able to see more clearly what’s going on anatomically. It makes me feel confident that the doctor knows what he’s doing if he’s learning new things, not just kinda stuck in his old ways. I was fine after the treatment. I was really impressed with the doctor's chairside manner. He was very polite to his assistants.See More Reviews
