Root canals offer the best chance to preserve a natural tooth in which the dental pulp and nerve have been irreversibly damaged by decay, disease, or an oral trauma. More than 15 million root canals are performed annually. A root canal is advised when there is enough sound root and crown structure remaining to eventually restore form and function to the involved tooth. When a root canal is necessary, you want to go to an experienced, compassionate dentist who has a proven track record for successful root canal procedures. At Gardens Family Dentistry, your Palm Beach Gardens root canal will be done by Dr. Dalia Al-Azzawi, a veteran of this treatment.
Symptoms of a dental infection due to permanent damage to the nerve of a tooth include swelling of the gums and face, increased sensitivity to temperature, and a severe toothache. If this infection is left untreated, an abscess and eventual tooth loss are likely consequences. Root canal therapy involves cleaning and shaping each canal, and then filling them with a special inert material. Following this they are sealed to prevent any subsequent infection. Once your Palm Beach Gardens root canal therapy has been completed, the tooth should be fully restored as recommended. With root canal, Dr. Al-Azzawi can save your natural tooth and beautifully restored to serve you well for many years.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We all know that famous saying by Ben Franklin. At Gardens Family Dentistry, Dr. Dalia Al-Azzawi supports that sentiment. At her Palm Beach Gardens dental office, preventive dentistry is emphasized for all of her patients. At your first visit to this family dental practice, we want to establish your oral health baseline. We will begin by carefully reviewing your medical and dental histories and taking special note of all of your dental concerns, as well as any symptoms that you may be experiencing. This will be followed by a thorough clinical examination, including an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, an analysis of your occlusion (bite) plus a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures, and the complete orofacial area. Any needed diagnostic dental films will be taken at this time.
Proper teeth brushing and flossing techniques are reviewed and a thorough professional dental cleaning provided at the Palm Beach Gardens dental office. For our pediatric patients, we recommend periodic fluoride treatment and the application of dental sealants to help avoid tooth decay. Dr. Al-Azzawi will examine your TMJ (temporal mandibular joint) to help prevent headaches, neck pain, joint inflammation or other joint disorders. If it is necessary, our talented dentist will restore any of your decayed teeth with either aesthetically pleasing fillings, or crowns. Teeth with damage to the dental nerve as a result of decay or trauma can be treated and maintained with a root canal procedure. Any periodontally involved teeth will be evaluated for either of two options – non-surgical or surgical solutions. And we can replace any missing teeth and give you a natural looking smile.
In addition to all of these preventive and restorative services, we offer cosmetic dentistry for seamless results and to give you a beautiful smile. These include teeth whitening, dental veneers, and Invisalign. For excellent, personalized dental care, call to set up an appointment at this exceptional Palm Beach Gardens dental office.
