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.
