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.

Took my kids here for the first time. The office staff was friendly and quick. Our wait time was little to none and they have late hours so the kids don’t miss school!

I love the thorough cleanings and professional care I receive here. I couldn't ask for a better dentist and am very glad my family chose to come here. I recommend this office 100% and some. See you in 6 months.

I have been going to David and Dr. Kim since 1986. He is the only dentist I will let touch my mouth. They are honest and they will always be up front with me. I really like the girls in the front office also. He hires the best!!! Their prices are the same as other dentists. The equipment is state of the art. I like the way they decrease the pain of any shots that has to be put in my mouth. Do you want to pay for dental work that will have to be redone in a few years? If you do, do not go to this office. They always use the best and the most cost effective treatment.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff, it’s an easy process from start to finish. The dental hygienists are awesome, and do a great job. I have seen both dentists there and I would recommend them both, Dr. Koelker and Dr. Kim. The front office staff does a lot to make sure I am able to schedule and change appointments if needed, and have even reached out after hours via text to double check my insurance several nights before my appointment, to see if I needed to switch to private pay to make sure I wasn’t potentially billed beyond my limits. That’s great service.

Yes I recommend The Dentist of Allen. Both my wife and I have been patients for close to 20 years. We both think Dr Kim is great, along with the rest of the staff.
