Do you have a tooth that is critically decayed? If so, you may need to consider a root canal treatment. Without one, you could face severe, painful difficulties and infections like swelling in your mouth or face, bone loss, or a tooth abscess. Dr. Amin Samadian and his team in San Francisco are happy to offer effective root canal or endodontic treatment in his San Francisco office using state-of-the-art technology such as ultrasonics and cone beam CT scan.
The main purpose of a root canal treatment is to extract the diseased pulp (the part in the middle of the tooth that is made of living, connective tissue) and the nerve of your tooth. It can stop you from losing your original tooth and improve your overall dental health.
Dr. Amin Samadian’s San Francisco team may advise you have an endodontic treatment if the pulp of your tooth becomes infected, inflamed, or expires. The most common signs that you may need a root canal include tooth discoloration, tooth pain when you chew or bite down on something, overly-sensitive teeth, a persistent gum sore, or a lesion that displays on an x-ray or a Cone Beam CT scan.

Before the treatment begins a 3D cone beam CT scan will get taken to show all the roots and canals of the tooth and show if the root canal is affected or not. During your root canal, Dr. Amin Samadian’s San Francisco team will extract the infected pulp from your tooth. Next, he’ll thoroughly clean and disinfect the inside of the tooth. Once he’s removed all of the infected pulp, he will use a rubber-like material to fill the opening. Lastly, Dr. Amin Samadian’s team will restore your tooth with a crown or filling, done the same day using his on-site dental lab.
Most patients are concerned that receiving an endodontic treatment will be extremely painful. Since Dr. Amin Samadian’s San Francisco team uses numbing and anesthesia medication and gentle tools, you should experience very little pain during your treatment.
After your root canal treatment, your tooth will be saved, allowing you to have more efficient chewing and a regular biting force and sensation. A root canal can also maintain a natural appearance while protecting the rest of your teeth from excessive wear or stain.

I could not recommend Dr. Samadian more – AND all of his staff, at that! No longer will I mind or be afraid of going to the dentist.
It’s a completely transformative kind of practice…it was a terrific experience.
Very informative, patient and sensitive to your needs. Very focused, and desires to ensure it’s done properly the first time.
