Root Canal Therapy Heals Dental Infections in Frisco, McKinney, Prosper and Little Elm Areas
Frisco Dentist Alleviates Toothaches with Root Canals
At Family Dentistry of Frisco, we offer root canals to alleviate the discomfort and infection associated with toothaches. Generally, if you’re suffering pain in your tooth, it’s likely that interior channels—the root canals—are diseased.
Root canal infections often occur because bacteria have infiltrated the inside of your tooth. Teeth that are damaged, cracked, and broken, as well as teeth with cavities, are more susceptible to bacterial infections.
Along with root canals, the interior of your tooth also includes pulp and the nerve. One of the main purposes of your tooth’s nerve is to feel pain. In other words, a tooth nerve is a sensor that lets you know when something’s wrong. Unfortunately, by the time you experience pain, it’s likely that the infection is advanced.
For patients who live in and around Frisco and who are experiencing pain, throbbing, or aching, it’s important to contact us at Family Dentistry of Frisco. Dr. Paresh B. Patel can perform comfortable root canal therapy, and remove the infection that has damaged the interior tissues of your tooth. If your root canal infection goes untreated, it’s possible to get an abscessed tooth, which is more costly to treat, can cause additional health problems, and may require periodontal surgery.
How do you know if you’re experiencing a root canal infection? Some of the symptoms include:
- Pain in or around the tooth
- Aching or throbbing in the tooth
- Prolonged sensitivity to cold or hot temperatures
- Dark spots on the tooth
- Weakening, chipping, or cracking of the tooth
- Swelling in the gums
At Family Dentistry of Frisco, we want you to feel at ease during your root canal therapy. With our sedation options and comfort amenities, we can ensure you feel as relaxed as possible when Dr. Paresh B. Patel performs root canal therapy.
Root canal therapy, also commonly known as “getting a root canal,” is the process to remove the infection and save as much tooth structure as possible. During your root canal, Dr. Paresh removes the infected tissue and cleans it out. Then he will file the interior until smooth and fills it with a sealant. After a root canal, we recommend the placement of a porcelain crown. The crown will ensure your tooth remains strong, beautiful, and functional after your root canal.
At Family Dentistry of Frisco you will receive PIPs enhanced root canal therapy which uses laser to enhance root canal disinfections to achieve more long lasting results.
