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.

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.

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.
