Comfortable Root Canal Therapy At Houston Uptown Dentists
Due to urban myths popularized by movies and television, many of our patients get a little anxious when we mention root canals. The good news is that root canals are actually no more painful than a tooth filling.
Because we want to provide the best, most gentle treatment possible, we have invested in state-of-the-art technology to improve your root canal treatment. Instead of the metal files of the past, we will clean out the inside of your tooth using:
- Endodontic lasers
- PIPS (Photon Induced Photo-acoustic Streaming) – a revolutionary method to clean the canal with the highest efficiency – by Fotona
What To Expect During Your Root Canal
If you’re a little worried about your root canal treatment, it might help to understand the procedure some. If you visit us for a root canal, we will:
- Carefully plan your treatment with digital X-rays
- Numb the area for your comfort
- Remove the infected soft tissue and nerves (pulp) from your tooth
- Fill your tooth with an inert, tooth-colored material
Depending on your situation, we may recommend placing a dental crown on your tooth following a root canal for added strength and protection.
If you would like, we can also help relieve your dental anxiety with a variety of dental sedation options. We can also provide extended appointments so you won’t feel rushed.
