Worried about an impending root canal?


When your dental practitioner tells you that you need a root canal, you may feel like running a mile. One of the most dreaded of all dental procedures, Root canal  are often unfairly feared by dental patients, as they are an extremely simple and useful treatment for restoring a previously infected tooth. Prior to the invention of endodontics, the only solution for an infected tooth was a complete extraction!. The Texas City Dental in Texas City is conveniently located near to La Marque, Galveston, and Hitchcock area is conveniently located near to the HEB, and the ROSS market complex is the best dental close to you.

At Our Dental Clinic, our dentist has a lot of experience at performing all endodontic procedures, specifically root canals, to help relieve any discomfort from infection and restore the functionality of the tooth. We aim to, of course, keep you informed of everything we are doing during this treatment and will be happy to answer any questions that you may have therapy if you need it? Are there any benefits to this treatment? Read on to find out!

Eliminates pain

When you come to our dentist, for a root canal, chances are you have recently had a dental infection or blunt force trauma to your tooth. Both of these scenarios can be extremely uncomfortable to manage and, believe it or not, a root canal can reduce your discomfort. After the localized  anesthetic has worn off and the treatment is complete, you may feel a sensation akin to a bruise. However, this will ease in a few days and you will be left with a healthy, pain-free tooth.

Stops infection from spreading

Dental infections can spread quickly; gum tissue is extremely soft and easy to penetrate for bacteria. A root canal involves removing any infected debris from the inside of the tooth and thus halts the spreading of the infection to the gum, surrounding teeth or into the bloodstream.

Preserves the tooth

If your once infected tooth is at the front of your mouth, it may not be so easy to have it removed, based solely on the aesthetics afterwards. When a root canal is performed, your tooth remains fully intact and functional. You will be able to bite, chew and grind food with it, just as you did prior to the infection.

High success rate

Many people worry that having a root canal will weaken the tooth’s structure. This is not true and studies have found that Root canal  therapy has an excellent long-term success rate for both infection prevention and functionality restoration; well over 95%. Brilliant!.
