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.

Root canal treatment is often necessary when dealing with an abscessed tooth or infection. This therapy helps preserve the tooth and safeguard your overall dental health. Several key advantages of undergoing a root canal include:

  • Enhance functions such as chewing and speaking
  • Boost your overall dental health
  • Preserve the natural tooth
  • Improve the aesthetics of your smile
  • Relieve discomfort
  • Stop the spread of infection to surrounding teeth
  • Maintain the integrity of the jawbone

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.

We have gone to many dentists in the past, even a family member, and this is by far the best experience we have had. Office staff is amandine and the dentists and hygienists are kind and caring

I have been in great hands with Dr. Walker and her staff since I first started with them over 5 years ago. Everything from the customer service, genuine care, communication, patience, and even their charitable works was been top notch and very comforting throughout my time with them.

About Us
Can I eat normally after a root canal therapy?

Immediately following your treatment, we advise you to wait until the numbness from the anesthesia wears off before eating to avoid accidentally biting your cheek or tongue. Initially, it's best to stick with soft, easy-to-chew foods to avoid any discomfort and to protect the treated area.

Will I experience pain during or after the procedure?

With the use of local anesthesia and other optional sedation techniques, we aim to make your experience as pain-free as possible. While the procedure itself is typically not painful due to these measures, it's normal to experience some sensitivity or mild discomfort in the days following the treatment. 

What should I do if my symptoms persist or worsen after treatment?

If you notice persistent or worsening symptoms following your root canal therapy at Leon Springs Dental Center, it's crucial to get in touch with our office immediately. While some degree of sensitivity is normal during the initial healing phase, severe pain, swelling, or the return of original symptoms could indicate the need for further intervention.
