Endodontics Treatment

                                         


ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

Root canal treatment aims to disinfect the root canal system and allow healing of the surrounding tissues. Your Endodontist will achieve this by carefully shaping, cleaning and then filling the root canals of your infected tooth. Once your root canal treatment is completed, the foundations are ready for you to return to your general dentist for the final restoration such as a crown which will protect the tooth and restore it to its full function. This procedure enables you to retain your natural tooth which is likely to function better than a substitute. Root canal treatment is usually completed in one to three appointments depending on the extent of infection and your current state of oral and general health. The Texas City Dental in Texas City is conveniently located near La Marque, Galveston, and the Hitchcock area is conveniently located near the HEB and ROSS market complex. ,  in order to diagnose your condition.

ROOT CANAL RE-TREATMENT

You may have been referred to us for root canal retreatment. As with any dental or medical procedure, occasionally a tooth may not heal as expected after initial treatment for a variety of reasons including:

  • Narow or curved canals were not treated during the initial procedure;
  • Complicated canal anatomy went undetected in the first procedure;
  • The placement of the crown or other restoration was delayed following the endodontic treatment;
  • The restoration did not prevent salivary contamination to the inside of the tooth; or
  • Non -healing of previous pathology.
  • Successfully treated teeth may encounter new problems that may require treatment. This occurs when:

ARING FOR YOU AND YOUR SAFETY

We follow the infection control guidelines outlined by the Dental Board of Australia and Australian Dental Association. These include single use CBCT items (where possible), such as the endodontic files used for your treatment. These are discarded once your treatment is complete. Where items are able to be sterilised this is done using a multi-step procedure that is validated using latest technology to ensure that any remnants of bacteria, viruses and other infectious agents are killed.

We also undertake standard precautions which include hand hygiene, wearing gloves, masks and protective eyewear for all procedures. Any sharp disposable instruments are removed immediately to prevent the possibility of needlestick injury to you and our team.

SEDATION

Some of our patients require some assistance with managing treatment. For a variety of reasons (e.g. anxiety associated with dental treatment), we offer the option of sedation so that you can be relaxed while treated.

Sedation can be administered intravenously or as an oral medication. Please speak to your Endodontist regarding this and a suitable option can be tailored to your needs. An information sheet will be provided detailing the pre and post sedation care.
