Complimentary Root Canal Consultation

Specializing in

Root Canal Treatment

Dr. Victor Peritore in San Mateo |  Endodontist

Root canals relieve you of any pain or swelling you may be experiencing, and allows you to keep a tooth that would otherwise need to be extracted.




Dr. Victor Peritore


Dr. Peritore became an endodontist because he felt it was the best way for him to have a direct, positive effect on people who are in pain or in danger of losing a compromised tooth. He practices painless dentistry, with a very gentle touch, and is skilled at putting his patients at ease while he helps them with their oral health issues.


"Dr. Peritore, was just beyond awesome. He put me at ease & made me feel so comfortable before, during & after the procedure. I never expected a root canal to be so painless and easy!! I highly recommend Dr. Peritore!"

—  Kanani C, Patient for over 5 years

Why do I need root canal treatment?

Dr. Choi may determine that a tooth requires root canal treatment:

  • If the pulp of the tooth is damaged, and/or infected by decay, trauma, gum disease, or deep fillings.

  • If  Dr. Robert Choi has determined that the crown (visible part of the tooth) is extremely weak and requires additional support.

  • If a crown (cap) or bridgework is necessary for a tooth whose future pulp health is questionable.


Will I feel pain during or after the procedure?

Our goal is to provide a completely pain-free procedure. By using comprehensive local anesthesia, you should not feel any pain during your treatment. After treatment some discomfort may occur but is usually well managed with over-the-counter medications. If necessary, Dr. Choi will prescribe medication.


What is a root canal?

To understand how endodontic therapy or a ‘root canal’ works, please refer to the diagram below. During the procedure,  the pulp is cleaned out, the space disinfected and filled.


Root canals can be completed in one or two visits.  Your tooth may require a crown if there is not sufficient original enamel to support the tooth.
