At Dentistry of the Oaks we are proud to offer root canal therapy for our patients experiencing a decayed, damaged or infected tooth pulp/root. Wondering if you may need a root canal in Houston? Some signs to look out for include:
Some patients, however, may not experience symptoms until the problem is quite advanced, routine visits with your dentist can help prevent these complications from ever even occurring.
During endodontic treatment, a tiny hole will be created in the affected tooth, allowing your endodontist to properly access the tooth pulp and root. The entire root canal will be thoroughly cleaned, removing any infection or bacteria. Once cleaned, the root canal will also be sterilized and then sealed, preventing future complications.
Following your root canal treatment in Houston, we recommend receiving a dental crown. A dental crown can restore the appearance of your tooth, provide additional stability and help protect the tooth from future issues.
