Root Canal Therapy

Are you experiencing extreme tooth pain? Are your gums swollen, red or tender? You may need a root canal in Houston! Root canal therapy may be necessary when the pulp of a tooth has become infected, decayed or damaged. Wondering if you may need our Houston root canal therapy? Here are some common symptoms:

  • Signs of an infection or abscess (may resemble a pimple) on the gums.
  • Swollen, tender or red gums.
  • Severe tooth pain.
  • Temperature sensitivity.
  • Pressure sensitivity.

Some patients, however, don’t experience any symptoms at all until it is too late and the tooth has to be extracted. This is why it is important to schedule routine dental care with your Houston dentist; they will notice before it is too late and can start treatment.

About Root Canal Therapy

When a tooth is severely damaged, infected or decayed root canal treatment may be recommended in an attempt to save your tooth from extraction. To save the tooth, the pulp, nerves, bacteria, and decay are thoroughly removed. Once the affected tooth has been properly cleaned, the resulting space will be filled with medicated dental materials which can help restore the function of the tooth.

We may also suggest that a dental crown to be placed over the affected tooth after your Houston root canal to ensure it is completely protected and no further decay or infection will occur.

Root Canal Retreatment

Although root canal therapy is a highly successful, occasionally a patient may experience a new infection in a tooth, requiring root canal retreatment. During root canal retreatment, we will remove your existing crown and the material used to seal the tooth. We will then thoroughly clean the tooth of any bacteria and infection, re-pack the area and place another dental crown on the affected tooth.
