Root Canals in Torrance, CA
Root canal treatment is performed to remove infected areas of the soft, inner section of the tooth, also known as the pulp. When these areas become infected, it can cause significant pain, and eventually death of the entire tooth. A root canal can allow for proper healing and further strengthening of the tooth.
Barrera Advanced Dentistry’s main focus is prevention, so we work to detect when root canal therapy is needed to stop an infection in its tracks — before it has the chance to spread through the bloodstream to the rest of the body. After treating the infection, Dr. Barrera will top off the tooth with a luminous, natural-looking dental crown.

Dr. Barrera is proud to offer top root canal treatments in Torrance, CA and beyond, with comfortable treatments designed to restore optimal oral health.
