There are two words that can strike fear into the most courageous heart: root canal. But at The Addison Dentist in Addison TX, root canals are performed with the patient’s comfort uppermost in mind.
A root canal is a procedure that treats the inside of a tooth. It becomes necessary when a cavity infects a tooth’s interior, which can cause increased sensitivity and a whole lot of pain.
The technical word for a root canal is endodontic therapy. In short, it works like this: after an access hole is drilled, the damaged interior, or pulp, is removed. What remains is thoroughly cleaned, filled, and sealed. A crown is placed over the whole thing to protect it, and provide a natural-looking appearance.
No one likes going to the dentist to begin with, and root canals have the reputation of being painful. For those patients coping with dental anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry.
