Do you have an infected tooth? Let us have Root Canal Treatment

                                 

If your tooth hurts when you eat, or feels sensitive to temperature, it could be infected. Tooth infections don't clear up by themselves – they need to be treated with a root canal. Our Dental Surgeons offers root canal therapy for patients of all ages, eradicating the infection and relieving pain and discomfort. If our dentists think you or your child could benefit from root canal treatment, we'll explain what the procedure involves and answer all of your questions about possible risks and costs. You can then make an informed decision about what's right for you. 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 ROSS market complex is the  best dental care near you.

What is a root canal?

The root canal is the space inside your tooth that's filled with soft tissues, called the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels and nerves, which is why it feels so painful if it gets damaged or infected. This can happen if the outer tooth is damaged by decay, trauma or severe gum disease, letting bacteria into the soft centre. If your tooth is infected, our dentists will recommend a root canal treatment  to save it. This is one of the most common dental procedures and involves removing the infected pulp to take away the pain and prevent an abscess from forming. After removing the infection, we'll fill in the root canal and cover the treated tooth with a natural-looking crown to restore your smile.

Who can benefit from a root canal?

Toothache isn't always a symptom of a tooth pulp infection, but we recommend making an appointment with our dentists if you have any unexplained problems with your teeth. We'll examine your mouth to diagnose the problem and recommend a root canal or other suitable treatment.

Possible signs of a tooth infection are:

  • Tooth pain – this may be constant or only hurt when you bite down
  • Sensitivity – your tooth feels more sensitive to hot, cold or sweet food and drink
  • Inflammation – swelling or pus on the gum can be signs of a tooth abscess

Root canal procedure

Endodontic treatment can sometimes require several appointments, depending on how severe the infection is. Our dentists will use x-rays to take a close look at the infection and determine if an abscess may be present. For Root canal treatment  our Dental Surgeons will use local anaesthesia, so you won't feel pain during the procedure. The tooth is opened using a dental drill and the damaged or infected pulp is removed. We'll then disinfect the root canal to make sure all bacteria has been removed. Once the root canals have been thoroughly cleaned, we'll fill them with a synthetic material to prevent further infections. We'll then seal the tooth with a dental crown or large filling. This restores the appearance and function of the treated tooth.
