SIGNS YOU MAY NEED
a Root Canal
While every patient is different, there are a few commons signs of a severe tooth infection that may warrant a root canal. If you’re experiencing any of the following, we encourage you to contact Dr. Albert or the Highline Dental team immediately.
Abscess on gums
Inflammed or swollen gums
Pain with pressure
Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
Root Canal Treatment
During your root canal treatment, the infected or inflamed pulp of your tooth is removed and the interior of the tooth is cleaned. Your tooth is then sealed with a material called gutta-percha, which prevents contamination of the newly cleaned area. If the structure of your tooth has been compromised, a crown may be placed over it to seal it off from bacteria and protect it from further damage. After your procedure, you’ll be back to smiling, biting, and chewing painlessly.

I had a great experience with Dr. Albert Kim. He is a great and honest dentist. He takes the time to do what is right for you. I am glad I finally found a dentist who cares for me as a patient.
I took my daughter in to have her teeth cleaned in preparation for braces. During her new patient exam, Dr. Kim determined that one of her baby teeth needed extraction because the gum had grown over the tooth. Seeing the anxiety that pulling the tooth was causing her, he calmly explained how he would numb the tooth before gently extracting it. He and his dental assistant Joan, were both kind and reassuring during the entire cleaning and extraction process. They made my daughter feel at ease and in control of her own treatment. We both left the appointment very pleased with the results of her cleaning and with the A+ service. Thank you for your kindness!
Great experience, nice service, fast service. Dr. Kim takes time to explain everything, he is very honest with you in regards to what you need done. […] Hard to find a doctor like him!
