Root Canal Therapy

When the inner tissue of a tooth, the “pulp,” gets infected, a root canal procedure is needed to remove the infected pulp to save the tooth. Root canals have a reputation for being painful, but our office is proud to offer endoscopic root canal therapy—painless, fearless root canals performed in-office using microscopic magnification and state of the art technology.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy in Katy, TX

  • Relieves tooth pain and sensitivity which can otherwise be severe.
  • Allows your root canal dentist to save the tooth before it dies and must be removed.
  • A root canal treatment restores the full function of the tooth.
  • It is less costly than having the tooth removed and replacing the missing tooth with an implant or bridge, and causes fewer problems for surrounding teeth than tooth removal.
  • The root canal procedure has a high success rate and usually lasts a lifetime.

Your Root Canal Procedure

You will be under anesthesia for this procedure. First, your Katy, TX root canal dentist will make a hole in the top of the tooth. He or she will then remove the infected pulp from the tooth as well as any bacteria or tooth decay that may be present.

You have the option of sealing the tooth either with a permanent filling or a custom-made crown that will offer more protection for your tooth. If you opt for a crown, your dentist will take an impression of your mouth so that the piece can be made and you will receive a temporary filling in the meantime. You will then need to return for a second appointment to permanently affix the crown to the tooth.

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, abscesses, or sensitivity, you might be in need of a root canal procedure. Call our office in Katy, TX today to book an appointment and talk with your dentist about your treatment options.
