What Is Root Canal Treatment?
Chipped and deteriorating teeth are generally taken care of with a tooth-colored filling or another type of replacement when they are dealt with early. However, as the damage reaches the middle of the tooth (known as the pulp), root canal therapy may be required to restore dental health and prevent extraction. A root canal is a specialized therapy provided at The Dentist of Allen to eradicate diseased inner-tooth tissue and close it off to restore normal dental function. We address abscessed or centrally damaged teeth using gentle root canal therapy and sedation to keep you feeling comfortable. If you have an extremely painful or infected tooth, contact our Allen, TX practice as soon as possible to find out if root canal therapy is the solution to your problem.
What Can I Expect During the Root Canal Process?
We'll use every modern technique available to us to ensure your comfort during your root canal. Root canals are performed at our Allen, TX office with local anesthesia and may include sedation to encourage relaxation. As soon as the tooth has lost feeling, a shield is positioned to safeguard the patient's mouth, and the infected region will be exposed through a small hole made in the upper part of the tooth. The pulp, which makes up the nerves and blood storage for each tooth, is then removed and restructured before being completely sanitized. We then seal the damaged tooth and use a sedative filling to promote the healing process.
Any discomfort you felt should begin to subside once the root canal is finished. Over-the-counter pain medication can be used to deal with aches or inflammation. We will arrange a follow-up consultation a few weeks later to evaluate your recovery. Teeth restored with root canals are more prone to damage and often require the added defense of a custom crown once completely healed.
