Chronic tooth pain is oftentimes associated with a more serious oral health concern. If you have been experiencing a persistent toothache with heightened sensitivity and pain when eating or chewing, you may have a tooth infection. An untreated tooth infection not only causes chronic pain, but can lead to oral health complications in the mouth and jaw, and can even result in loss of the tooth. This requires root canals in Houston, TX. Many people incorrectly associate a root canal with undesirable pain, but the purpose of a root canal is to eliminate the ache in your tooth. We can help alleviate your tooth pain and treat the problem area gently, effectively, and with virtually no pain, with the aid of modern dental technology and sedation dentistry.
Timely treatment of infection will help ensure we can restore your tooth as closely as possible to its original state and function. Our therapy for root canal in Houston, TX begins with the removal of damaged pulp from inside the tooth. The inside of the tooth is then thoroughly cleaned and carefully sealed to prevent further bacteria from entering. Many times, we will use a dental crown to “cap” the tooth for added protection and to restore its original look and function. If a tooth infection is treated early enough, a root canal can save the tooth from being lost! Patients who undergo a root canal procedure are often relieved to find that their tooth pain is gone and treatment was fast and comfortable.
Today, root canal treatment is as easy as receiving a cavity filling or dental crown. In addition, our combined experience, skill, and sedation options make your root canal therapy virtually pain- and anxiety-free. You do not have to fear getting treatment for your tooth infection! We will help restore your oral health with timely treatment we strive to make as safe and effective as possible.
