Root Canals & Endodontics

Root Canal Therapy (otherwise known as Endodontics) is necessary to treat a badly infected tooth, or a tooth with significant decay.

Some indications of the need for root canal treatment include:
Sudden pain or throbbing while biting
Sensitivity to hot or cold foods
Severe decay or injury that creates an abcess (infection) in the bone

With today’s advances in dental science, the majority of these teeth can now be saved. Dr. Hekmat’s use of special anesthetics and techniques allows him to perform root canal treatments with surprising comfort, safety and minimal recovery time.

Dr. Hekmat was recently honored by USC’s School of Dentistry with the Paul K. Hill Award for Excellence in Root Canal Treatments.
