Stop Your Toothache With a Stress-Free Root Canal

When an infection reaches the inside of your tooth (otherwise known as the pulp), a root canal treatment can eliminate the disease. Even though this treatment sounds scary, it’s far more comfortable than you realize. Plus, root canals have a success rate of 98 percent. They also help you avoid an extraction, which is often necessary if an infection goes untreated too long.

Here is what you can expect for the procedure:

  • Dr. Hardcastle will examine your mouth and determine the extent of the infection. He can show you the inside of your mouth with an intraoral camera and explain the need for root canal therapy. You’ll never be pressured into a procedure you don’t understand.
  • Before he begins, he’ll numb your mouth with a local anesthetic. You can also receive sedation if you feel nervous. We have laughing gas or oral sedation.
  • He’ll clean out the infected pulp, disinfect the inside of your tooth, and use an inert material to maintain your dental structure. A crown or filling is then used to restore your tooth’s function.

You’ll have your smile back and enjoy life again without distracting discomfort. For comfortable root canals in Dallas, call (972) 992-5223.

Common Questions About Root Canals

When the soft inner portion of a tooth (known as the pulp) becomes infected, it can produce intense pain. This can happen as a result of an untreated cavity or an injury to the tooth that allows bacteria inside. A root canal involves removing the diseased pulp, sterilizing the tooth, and sealing it with a rubberlike material and a crown.

Although many people believe that root canal therapy is painful, it is no more uncomfortable than getting a tooth filled. We’ll use a local anesthetic to make sure the tooth is numb before we begin your procedure. We also offer sedation, so you can relax and feel confident that you’re not going to feel any discomfort.

Root canal therapy (often shortened to just “root canal”) is a treatment that can stop the throbbing pain of a diseased tooth, save the tooth from extraction, and prevent further damage to your other teeth and your gums. Many people fear root canals, but they are actually no more painful than having a tooth filled.
