When Dentists Get Toothaches, They Know Where to Find an Outstanding Root Canal Dentist in Bakersfield

Root canals can be nearly pain-free at Kern Dental Specialties, known as the "dentists' endodontists"

LOS ANGELES, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When dental specialist Peter Bae, D.D.S., found himself with a nasty toothache due to a molar gone bad, he was in as much distress as any patient requiring the skills of a top endodontic dentist in Bakersfield. Much to Dr. Bae's relief, his experience with Dr. Harry Malhotra of Kern Dental Specialties went as well as could possibly be expected. "I was very numb and very comfortable throughout the procedure," Dr. Bae wrote. Since then, the busy local prosthodontist has referred numerous patients and even some family members to KDS, as it has steadily developed a reputation as the place for an endodontist Bakersfield residents and dental professionals turn to first when tooth distress strikes.

Toothaches can be genuinely excruciating. Even so, many patients tend to view the cure – root canal therapy – with nearly as much trepidation as the disease and may sometimes put-off treatment and suffer unnecessarily. However, as the office for a root canal dentist Bakersfield residents have trusted for some 15 years, Kern Dental Specialties has proven itself time and again as patient after patient has experienced far less discomfort than they expected, or even next to none at all.

A great deal of the credit has to go to the skill of Dr. Malhotra as well as his three highly respected colleagues, Dr. George Bogen, Dr. James Malouf, and Dr. Moon Ko. All of the KDS endodontists have helped countless patients in need after completing the two years of additional studies required to enter the endodontic specialty. (All are products of the outstanding dental programs at the University of Southern California and Boston University.)

Dealing with the soft tissue inside teeth, including nerves and blood vessels, endodontics is among the most challenging of dental specializations, particularly when it comes to preventing discomfort. The endodontists of Kern Dental Specialties regularly receive referrals from dentists throughout the Kern County area whenever such issues as infections and cracked or traumatized teeth require procedures that remove dental pulp and preserve as much of the remaining tooth structure as possible.

In fact, Dr. Peter Bae is just one of many area general dentists to refer family members and even themselves to KDS. For that reason, Dr. Malhotra and his colleagues have been frequently referred to as the "dentist's endodontists" of the Bakersfield area. KDS doctors are also highly experienced in apicoectomy, also called root end surgery, which is used as an alternative therapy when conventional root canals will not produce the desired result.

Although most patients are referred by their dentists, KDS does accept self-referred patients with dental problems requiring endodontic treatment. The office also accommodates same day emergencies and offers extended hours for more convenient appointments both before and after regular working hours.
