    Root Canal

    How Does Root Canal Therapy Work

    Our teeth may appear like bony, hard structures, but they have a complete innervation and blood supply system, like the rest of our body organs. The nerves and blood vessels that supply our teeth originate from the pulp, the innermost sensitive layer. If the outer protective layers become damaged or decayed, many oral microbes gain easy access to the pulp tissues.

    It initiates an immune response and causes inflammation of the inner pulp. You may experience a severe toothache, tenderness upon biting, and increased sensitivity. With a timely diagnosis, our Tomball, TX, team can save your natural tooth structure with root canal therapy by extracting the infected pulp tissues. It also disinfects the root canals and prevents the spread of infection to adjacent areas.

    Process of Root Canal Therapy at Our Facility

    At the time of your initial visit, we will perform an oral exam and take dental X-rays to determine the extent of the pulp infection. If the pulp tissues are involved, we will begin the process of root canal treatment by anesthetizing your teeth. Our aim is to provide you with a comfortable and pain-free experience.

    First, we will drill a small hole in the occlusal surface of your tooth to access the inner pulp. In the next steps, we will remove the damaged pulp tissue, irrigate the canals, and disinfect them to eliminate harmful bacteria. We will then seal the root canals with a durable material and close the access opening.

    For additional protection, we will place a custom-made crown over the tooth. It is made with tooth-colored materials that blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

    Post-Treatment Care

    After completion of root canal therapy in Tomball, TX, our dental experts will provide you with care guidelines to help you recover smoothly. It is normal to experience minor pain or soreness at the treatment site but rest assured that it is temporary. You can take over-the-counter pain relievers to lessen your symptoms.

    Although you can resume your normal activities soon after the treatment, we suggest consuming soft diet for 1 to 2 days to let your teeth adapt to the new change. Eating hard or sticky foods right away may put extra pressure on the root-canal-treated tooth. If you experience severe pain, swelling, or any other complications, visit us immediately for a reevaluation.
