When a tooth has been severely compromised by injury or decay, bacteria can enter through the outermost biting surface and infect the center layer of core tissues, blood vessels and nerves, which constitute the dental pulp. Moreover, when the dental pulp becomes irritated or damaged, a toothache, involving a range of unpleasant sensations often develops. With a toothache, you may experience extreme sensitivity to hot and cold, pain when biting down or a persistent discomfort. If you are suffering with any of these symptoms, we urge you to call our office right away. As a first step in care, our dentist will perform a comprehensive assessment of the problematic area, assisted by advanced digital radiography, as needed. If we determine root canal in Katy is the most effective course of care to treat and save your tooth, our dentist will gently and precisely remove the damaged pulp, then seal the tooth with biocompatible materials to prevent any subsequent infections. As skilled and experienced providers of care, we always strive to alleviate your symptoms while providing precise and gentle care. For patients who struggle with dental anxiety, we also offer safe and controlled sedation techniques to provide a more relaxing experience. Following root canal therapy, we often recommend restoring your tooth with a dental crown, which helps strengthen and protect the underlying tooth structure and improves the tooth’s function and appearance.
At Katy Star Dental, we deliver personalized, compassionate care at every visit, making it easier to attain excellent oral health. When you visit us for your root canal in Katy you can expect state-of-the-art care from a highly trained team of professionals. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
