Even though we only see the enamel (surface layer) of healthy teeth, a tooth consists of multiple layers of tissue that serve various functions. Dr. Adelpour focuses on repairing the delicate tissue inside teeth, including the dental pulp and root tissues, whenever they are injured, inflamed, or infected during endodontic treatment. When applied correctly, endodontic treatment can prevent tooth removal.
Before endodontic treatment, Dr. Adelpour will outline and explain the ins and outs of treatment, including offering ways to ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible from start to finish. Although many tooth-saving treatments are designed to save the delicate tissue inside of teeth, root canal therapy is the most popular.

How much does a root canal cost in Los Angeles?
The average cost of a root canal in Los Angeles is around $700 to $1,500. But tooth affected, type of dental crown chosen, and other factors influence the total cost. So, schedule a root canal consultation at BLVD Dental Aesthetics to get an exact quote for your tooth.
Do root canals hurt?
In short, no, root canals don’t hurt. While you might suffer from an intense toothache before root canal therapy, the treatment process itself should be reasonably comfortable and actually relieve discomfort.
Root canal vs extraction: what’s better?
Since an infected tooth can lead to further dental complications, immediate treatment is essential. An alternative to root canal therapy is dental extraction, but minimally invasive dentists like Dr. Adelpour encourage patients to save their natural teeth structure when possible. While there are convincing restorative dental options, like bridges and dental implants, nothing compares to natural teeth. Compared to tooth extraction and replacement, root canal therapy can put less stress on your schedule, bite, and wallet.
