A high-quality root canal treatment carried out by our endodontists, Dr. Matt Lloyd or Dr. Paul Clark, can allow you to keep a potentially infected tooth. This way, we can bring it back to health instead of losing the tooth prematurely. If you experience recurring or persistent pain in your tooth, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, swollen gums, or a pimple-like bump forming on the gum tissue near a tooth, this could be a sign that the tooth has an infection and could benefit from a root canal treatment at our dental office in McKinney, TX.
How does root canal treatment work?
The nerve and blood vessel tissues on the inside of the tooth are called the "pulp." These tissues help the tooth with certain sensory functions as well as providing it with nutrients while it is growing. A health adult's permanent tooth can function normally without pulp, since it is supported by the tissues surrounding it. Root canal treatments remove the pulp from a tooth when it is either inflamed or damaged. By removing the damaged or infected nerve, we have treated the source of your pain or infection and created an environment for your body to heal.
Why get root canal therapy?
If you have been given an option between a tooth extraction and a root canal treatment on the same tooth, the best option is the root canal. Keeping your natural tooth is almost always your best choice. Dentures, bridges, or dental implants often are more costly and will not have the same look, function, or feels as your natural tooth. Our root canal treatments in Mckinney, Texas are practically free of pain, providing less discomfort while your tooth heals, especially when compared to the recovery period of an extraction.
