Root Canal Treatment & Endodontics Santa Monica, CA

In order to repair and save a severely decayed or infected tooth, root canal treatment may become necessary. Dr. Mashkouri uses state of the art, latest technology that makes the root canal treatment go faster, more efficient and more comfortable for patients.


Root canals are required when the pulp part of a tooth has become severely decayed in infection. The most common cause of this is failing to brush and floss the teeth as part of routine oral maintenance. Cavities that are not treated in time often will lead to having a root canal. If decay continues to be neglected, then tooth extraction is the only option.

Pulp or nerves may be damaged in the following ways:

  • Decay that has not been treated or addressed
  • Cracking or chipping of teeth
  • Face trauma exposing the nerves
  • A tooth that has been exposed to many dental procedures
