A root canal, also referred to as endodontic therapy, becomes necessary when a patient experiences a tooth root that has become inflamed, infected and/or exposed. Not only can it rid you of the painful and uncomfortable symptoms, it can also save you from having to go through a tooth extraction in most cases.
During your root canal treatment, your Katy endodontist will remove the affected tooth pulp, tissue and nerves. After the root canal will be cleaned thoroughly and sealed. A dental crown may be recommended to improve the appearance of your teeth and protect it from further damage.
Ready to relieve yourself of the pain? Contact our Katy dental office today to schedule your appointment and discuss whether root canal treatment may be the right option for you.
