Coming to Channel Island Family Dental has been such a positive experience. I used to dread going to the dentist, but not anymore. The Dentist and staff are very professional, they don't hurry to answer any question or concerns we might have. I definitely recommend going there.

In the past I had very positive experiences with this place and their staff and Dr. G. However during the pandemic they made or cast an impression for a partial denture that was very poorly made and did not fit. It actually causes me great pain to eat while wearing it so I cannot wear it. Fortunately I kept the old partial. The fact that I was charged a 155.00 co pay for a device that does not fit my mouth properly because the person who did the impression did not seem to do it correctly and I believe they were a trainee is also sad to me. They did not seem to have any desire to make this situation right. If I ran a business like that I would have sent the entire partial in to be redone since they didn't make it properly to begin with, but I guess because they got their money from my co-pay and my insurance company they were done with me. It's very disappointing for me because I used to really enjoy going there and I even told a few friends of mine about how great they were. I guess things change. Channel Islands Family Dental certainly did. Oh, they solicit for positive reviews online too, and tell you they will give you a gift certificate or something if you make positive reviews. That seems insincere to me because they should let the work they do speak for itself. It's easy to make a review that is favorable, it's much more challenging to deliver professional and "caring" care. Especially to someone who has paid a co-pay for it and did not get what they paid for.I am editing this review on July 20, 2021.I have had some recent experiences that I have really appreciated with Channel Islands Family Dental and they are going beyond what I would expect in trying to make my partial denture issue right. I really appreciate that too. I think it just took a while for everyone to get on the same page because of the challenges with the pandemic and my disability of not being able to hear and so I think they are trying really hard to make my situation right, and I appreciate that greatly. I am glad to be a patient of theirs.

ROOT CANAL SYMPTOMS 

It is possible that in a routine check-up with your dentist, you may be informed about the need for a root canal, which is one of the least invasive dental treatments.

Endodontics, or root canal treatment, aims to preserve a tooth that, if left untreated, would have to be extracted. Therefore, root canal treatment is the last resort to save a diseased tooth and prevent the patient from having to have a prosthesis or implant to replace it.

TRIGGERS OF ROOT CANAL SYMPTOMS

Two main reasons can cause this damage:

 •   When the tooth has received a strong blow and, whether it breaks or not, the tooth loses its vitality.

 •   Due to a cavity that has not been treated in time and the infection reaches the dental pulp.

Root Canal symptoms

• Tooth sensitivity

Tooth Sensitivity - Channel Islands Family Dental Office | Dentist In Ventura County

Tooth sensitivity can indicate that the tooth enamel is worn down, but it can also be due to problems with decay or a fracture; in these cases, you may have a root canal symptom.

The level of tooth sensitivity that warrants a root canal is extreme. If you feel discomfort not only when drinking hot or cold beverages, but you also suffer from hypersensitivity without even putting anything in your mouth, for example, cold wind, it is advisable that you schedule an appointment with your dentist in Oxnard, Santa Paula, Ventura, Port Hueneme and Newbury Park to take a look at it.

• Chewing pain or sudden pain

Chewing should not represent any discomfort if your teeth are healthy. Therefore, the fact that it hurts to chew is an indication that there is a problem. Even if you cannot see any alteration in your teeth or gums with the naked eye, but you still feel pain or discomfort when you eat, you may need a root canal.

Even without chewing, there are cases in which people who need a root canal treatment experience sudden sharp pains in one of their teeth.

• Darkening of a dental piece

Darkening - Channel Islands Family Dental Office | Dentist In Ventura County

One of the most common causes you may need a root canal for is after a trauma or a blow to one of your teeth.

It is possible that one of your teeth has broken and you didn’t realize it. If the trauma affected the tooth’s nerve, you will begin to notice discoloration changes in the tooth because the area is no longer receiving the same blood flow as before.

• Gum inflammation

Root canal treatment is required when the root of the tooth is affected, as we already know, by decay or trauma. Being a problem in the pulp, it is usual that the gums or other soft parts surrounding the tooth become inflamed.

Inflammation in your gums may also indicate that you suffer from an infectious process in the root so that you will need a root canal more urgently.

•Bad taste in the mouth and bad smell

If there is an infectious process affecting the root of your tooth and it is not taken care of in time, the infection can create an abscess with pus that will generate a strange taste in your mouth and halitosis. Root canal treatment provides the ideal cleaning and treatment to overcome these two uncomfortable symptoms.
