At Dental Care of Texas, we understand swelling, pain and tooth sensitivity can be extremely uncomfortable. Your symptoms may be caused by a decaying or infected tooth. Your health and comfort are our top priorities, which is why we offer root canal treatments to make your mouth feel normal again.
A root canal is a common dental treatment that eliminates infection in the pulp of a tooth, stops decay and, in most cases, saves your tooth from removal. Dental Care of Texas uses state-of-the-art technology and the gentlest techniques to bring you an effective and comfortable root canal treatment experience.
During the root canal procedure, your dentist will access the inside of your tooth and clean out any bacteria, infected soft tissue, and decay in the root canal site. The site will be sealed with a compound and sealing paste to keep out any debris and bacteria. The dentist will then treat the top of the tooth with a filling matched to the color of your natural teeth. A dental crown is finally used to restore full functionality to your tooth. The crown is made of porcelain and created in a dental laboratory. It fits over the tooth to protect and stabilize it against further damage.
A root canal has many benefits. The primary one is the ability to keep your natural tooth. Also, you will be without pain and able to continue to chew effectively, enjoying the foods that you prefer. After restoration, your tooth continues to function like any other tooth. With good oral hygiene, which includes regular visits to your dentist combined with daily brushing and flossing, the restored tooth has the potential to last a lifetime.
