What Is Root Canal Treatment?
Chipped or decayed teeth are typically treated using a tooth-colored filling or a different form of treatment if they are caught and managed in time. But if the damage reaches the middle of the tooth, sometimes referred to as the pulp, a root canal is sometimes required to restore dental health and mediate the need for extraction. A root canal is an advanced service provided at Leon Springs Dental Center to eradicate infected pulp tissue and seal off the compromised tooth to restore oral wellness. Our dental team addresses abscessed or centrally decayed teeth utilizing gentle root canal therapy and offers sedation options to further increase patient ease. When you suffer from a significantly decayed or infected tooth, get in touch with our San Antonio, TX practice at your earliest convenience to enjoy the health advantages of gentle root canal treatment.
What Is the Root Canal Process Like?
Several of the symptoms that may signal you need a root canal include stabbing or dull tooth pain, other persistent oral discomforts, aching while chewing, and sensitivity to elevated or cool temperatures. You might also experience swelling concentrated around the mouth or gums, a noticeable bump around the gums, or an alteration in the color of a tooth following a wound.
Modern techniques are employed to help enhance a patient's relaxation during their root canal. At Leon Springs Dental Center, root canals are carried out using local anesthesia and are sometimes offered jointly with sedation approaches to encourage greater relaxation. When the tooth is dulled, a rubber dam will be positioned to block the patient's oral structures and the infected area will be reached through a tiny opening made at the top of the tooth. The pulp (which comprises the nervous tissues and blood supply for each tooth) will be removed, and the region will be reshaped utilizing advanced endodontic tools prior to being completely cleaned. We can then close off the diseased tooth with a medical-grade substance and finish it off with an anesthetic filling to kick off the rehabilitation process.
Leon Springs Dental Center Reviews
Even though I am the dentist here, I have to give kudos to Erin my hygienist!! I have had many others clean my teeth over the years and she did the BEST job I have had in years! Thank you Erin for doing such a great job on all of my patients. :) Dr. Walker
Carolyn & her team rock!! They always walk me thru everything so I’m more at ease!
Dr. Walker & her team are ROCK STARS ! They scheduled me in for an emergency dental procedure, and were professional from the moment I called to the time I left. I’ve been a patient for several years and I am beyond pleased with this practice.
Very efficient and personable staff. Always enjoy my visit and the service I receive.
Can’t recommend Leon Springs Dental Center enough. From the second I called to make my appointment, they had my needs at the top of their list. From asking about traumatic previous dentist appointments, what makes me feel comfortable, etc. They blew me out of the water before I even walked in their doors. The staff there is SO polite, everyone is working with each other & all have beautiful smiles! Lisa, Sabrina, Dr. Martinez all continuously made sure I was okay & explained every single thing they were doing to me and then again if I needed. Thank you Leon Springs Dental for making me comfortable and confident.
