Root Canal Therapy in Burleson Restores Oral Health
When serious damage or decay happens to a tooth, patients can experience much more than a common cavity. In fact, the inside of the tooth can become infected, as well as the network of blood vessels and nerves that are located there. In these cases, extraction may start to seem like a forgone conclusion – but it doesn’t have to be! Here at Marvel Dental, our team can provide root canal therapy instead. This transformative service is designed to clear away dangerous bacteria and leave your natural, healthy tooth securely in place. Contact our Burleson, TX practice today to schedule your first appointment with Dr. Oza or if you have any questions or concerns we can help you with.
How do I know if I need root canal therapy?
Common signs include:
- A certain tooth darkens from a normal shade to dark gray.
- A certain tooth and/or the gum tissue in the area is experiencing excessive sensitivity to temperature.
- There's severe inflammation and redness in the gum tissue around a certain tooth.
- The patient experiences considerable pain when a certain tooth is being tapped or used to chew food.
Of course, these symptoms should never be considered fast and hard rules when self-diagnosing. Attending routine appointments at Marvel Dental is the only way to be sure about your condition and receive the skilled attention you need at the earliest stage possible.
Root Canal Treatment Process
During the root canal procedure, patients sit back and relax as our team carefully accesses the inner chamber of the tooth in question. Then, Dr. Oza will thoroughly clean the root canal and remove any and all bacteria from the area before sealing the area shut once to minimize the chances of further infection. In most cases, a dental crown will be placed on top as a final touch to protect the treated tooth and restore its natural shape.
