Root Canal For Your Tooth!

Root Canal

Know More About Root Canal Treatment in Kingwood

Root canal therapy is that process that aids in repairing and saving a damaged or infected tooth instead of simply extracting it. A tooth mainly has two parts - a crown and the roots. The upper visible part that contains the chewing surface is the crown and the lower part which finally embeds inside the gums, is the root. The process of root canal therapy (RCT) actually involves removing the infected or damaged area of the tooth and then cleaning and disinfecting it.

When the pulp of your tooth gets infected to such an extent that it spreads till the site where the roots penetrate your gums, a Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is required. The pulp is actually a collection of blood vessels, nerve tissue and other cells, that is protected by the outer hard shell (your tooth roots!)

Symptoms that hint at the need for a root canal:

  • Pain and a tingling sensation that lingers for more than 10 seconds, after eating hot or cold food
  • Swelling or redness in the gums that might hint at an infection
  • Acute sensitivity to biting or even a sudden touch
  • Pain that feels like a throbbing heartbeat

Root canals are also called “endodontic treatment.” A root canal can save a tooth that would have otherwise required extraction due to infection.

So, What Are The Benefits Of A Root Canal Procedure?

  • It helps mitigate the pain
  • Prevents chances of a tooth extraction
  • Prevents the Bacteria from spreading
  • Prevents the formation of Abscess
  • Protects the adjacent tooth from getting infected too

Your root canal procedure would involve a number of steps. The good news is, there is no pain involved. Steps that are followed by our dentist in order to perform your RCT are –

  • Examine the affected tooth and go through its X-Rays properly.
  • Apply a local anesthesia into your affected tooth.
  • A dental dam is then placed over the affected tooth for isolating it and keeping it safe from your saliva.
  • Make an opening to get access to the pulp. It could be through the back of a front tooth or the crown of a molar or pre-molar also.
  • The pulp chambers are cleaned and sterilized too in order to prepare it for the filling.
  • The canal is then filled with some kind of gutta percha material.

We have often come across patients who become anxious when they hear the word “Root Canal”. With our advanced anesthesia options and surgical procedures, your root canal therapy would seem as comforting as a dental filling. There is absolutely no need for you to get tensed before you come in for the procedure. Your dentists will take care of everything.

Dr. MJ is absolutely amazing. I’m 56 and still scared of the dentist. She completely understands and takes all my fears away. She is literally the most gentle dentist I’ve ever had. The office is super clean and everyone is welcoming and professional. My appointments have always been on time which is important to me. I’m a patient for life and have recommended Dr. MJ to my friends and family. The overhead TV has also been a game changer for me as I’m able to relax a lot easier.

I Got 10 porcelain upper veneers cemented in last month and they are so stunning, white and natural. They aren't too big or too small. Dr Maria made sure she created the perfect size for my mouth. Dentist office is top notch. Pricing was affordable compared to other offices I consulted with. The office is the best. Staff is friendly, helpful and competent. I never feel rushed and they ensure all my questions are answered before I leave. My bill is always thoroughly explained. Dr. Maria is friendly and attentive, She loves what he does and that reflects on his work. I recommend this office.

I have struggled with dental anxiety my whole life, so going to a dental office for the first time in 8 years was nerve wrecking. But I must say, Dr. MJ was absolutely amazing! She talked me through everything, helped me better understand my oral health, informed me of brushing and flossing habits and overall made me feel comfortable! I was extremely impressed with her and staff. I will recommend this office to anyone and everyone!
