At Sandy Lake Dental & Orthodontics, we offer comfortable root canal therapy. No, that’s not a typo! Root canals have garnered a negative reputation over the years as a very painful procedure. Fortunately this is untrue, as they are actually one of the best ways to relieve extreme dental pain and are often the only way to save teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. With today’s techniques and soothing sedation, we can make sure that your procedure is a breeze.
Sometimes teeth sustain internal damage due to a deep cavity, a fracture, or other trauma. When that happens, an infection can develop. Left untreated, you may experience acute discomfort as well as tooth decay, gum, and bone loss. Even if your tooth isn’t hurting, the nerve may be compromised and require special attention.
During your root canal, one of our doctors will remove the inflamed or infected nerve tissue to eliminate pain and save your tooth. Then, we’ll fill your newly cleaned tooth with a special material and seal it with a crown that will protect it and let you smile in comfort.
If you need root canal therapy, don’t hesitate to call our Coppell office for treatment. Sandy Lake Dental & Orthodontics is happy to offer root canals to patients from Lewisville, Irving, Flower Mound, Carrollton, Arlington, Frisco, and beyond.
