- A choice of two kinds of dental sedation to keep you completely calm
- A team who knows how to keep you comfortable and relaxed
- Technology like 3D imaging that enables us to better plan your procedure
- Comforting touches like pillows, blankets, and even warm towels for freshening up after your treatment
If you’re experiencing dental pain or other signs you may need root canal therapy, call us ASAP at (972) 440-1980.
Keep Your Tooth Intact With a Root Canal Procedure
In a typical root canal procedure, Dr. Michael Hardcastle will remove the infected pulp from your tooth, seal the canals to prevent further problems, and usually complete the treatment with a dental crown to protect and strengthen your tooth. Extracting an infected tooth is an alternative.
It’s generally better to keep your tooth intact as it:
- Results in a quicker and easier recovery than an extraction
- Avoids the bone loss that occurs after losing teeth
- Prevents nearby teeth from shifting out of place
- Will save you time and money by eliminating the need for a tooth replacement like a dental implant
Seek Help Fast If You Notice These Symptoms
Pain, especially when chewing or applying pressure, is one of the most obvious signs you may need a root canal procedure. But see us ASAP with any of these other symptoms:
- A dark or discolored tooth
- Swollen or tender gums
- Sensitivity to heat or cold, especially if it continues after the stimulus is removed
