About Root Canal Therapy
If the spongy interior portion of the tooth (or pulp) gets an infection, it can develop into a good deal of discomfort and the entire tooth will begin to die if the infected pulp is not stopped. A root canal procedure by our dentists at Saddle Brook Dental Care in White Settlement, TX takes out the contaminated pulp from the tooth, which can spare the tooth and permit proper restoration start. To strengthen and protect the tooth after the pulp is extracted, a filling element can be added within the tooth otherwise a cap can be put on top of the tooth by our dentists. If the bacteria is not healed, other teeth may become infected, not to mention that the bacterial infection may move into the blood and infect more areas of the body. At Saddle Brook Dental Care in White Settlement, TX, our dentists offer root canal treatments to assist patients and return their dental health.
"Stellar customer service! Very straightforward and ever so helpful. I called this AM at 8 after finding them online. My brother needed immediate assistance because he was in throbbing pain and had to call into work over it. They gave us an appt 40 minutes from when I called. Was seen and the problems with my brothers teeth were explained in great detail with language he could understand. Laura was so helpful I wanted to hug her. She was able to arrange for my brother to be seen by another dentist nearby within the hour to have the extraction taken care of. She also did a fantastic job explaining the costs and what options were available to us due to our financial restraints. Laura saved the day for us! I truly appreciate everyone at Saddle Brook Dental for their assistance today.We will definitely be using them for all future dental work. And again, Laura was amazing!Thank you Laura and the team!

"I show up on time and get seen quickly. Staff is friendly and professional. Dr. PATEL is sweet & great at what she does. Today I saw Ortho Doctor Griffin I believe was his name and he was Amazing! I got my braces at 27 😁 Both Doctor's explained treatment options and their plans really well. They offer great financial help as well. I had to take my 5 year old son to all visits and they were very kind to him which was a huge plus ❤ I am definitely glad that I chose them as my Primary and for my Ortho even more. Cant wait to see the final look in two years!"- M.H. / Google / Jun 02, 2019

What to Expect
A root canal procedure is most often completed with local anesthesia to desensitize the mouth, plus our dentists may combine sedation as needed. Our dentists will extract the pulp from the contaminated tooth or teeth, then our dentists will cover the tooth with a crown or add filling material. Certain patients are at a larger risk of catching a bacterial infection (generally patients with heart issues like artificial heart valves and congenital defects), so our dentists will prescribe a course of antibiotics before and after the root canal therapy.
If only local sedation is given, the patient should be allowed to drive and get better at home, although a few sedation methods may require the individual to have a reliable adult drive them home. Patients will experience short-term numbness and certain patients may experience minor pain that can often be fixed with an over-the-counter pain medication. If a temporary cap was put on top of the infected tooth, the custom made crown will be positioned and bonded by our dentists at a second appointment. Following a root canal, dental care consisting of flossing and brushing at home, in addition to visits to Saddle Brook Dental Care as recommended by our dentists are essential to sustain the strength of the treated tooth or teeth.
A root canal therapy is often paid to some extent by the individual's insurance, in some cases dental insurance may not pay other costs for emergency treatment. Our dentists at Saddle Brook Dental Care in White Settlement, TX take several methods of payment and Saddle Brook Dental Care is able to help individuals with applications for financing, if needed.
