Root Canal Treatment in
Allen, Texas

Root canal treatment is recommended when a tooth has developed a serious bacterial infection on its inside. This can be caused by an oral injury or deep cavity which can allow bacteria to attack the tooth’s inner pulp and cause serious harm. Once the inner structure is infected, a root canal procedure will be needed to save the damaged tooth.

Root Canal Treatment in Allen

Some symptoms of an infected root canal include:

  • Intense tooth pain
  • Temperature sensitivities
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Abscesses on the gums

After taking X-rays and determining the extent of the infection, we will begin treatment. We will start by placing a dental dam around the patient’s tooth. This is a rubber sheet that is specifically designed to keep the tooth dry and to prevent the infection from spreading. We then use dental equipment to access the inside of the tooth from the top. Once we have entered the tooth, we can begin providing treatment.

The goal of root canal treatment is to clean out all of the unwanted deterioration and decay that exists inside the tooth. This process is completed with great care and precision to ensure that the tooth is cleaned out in its entirety. We then apply an antimicrobial liquid to the tooth. This will flush out the root canals and reach the areas that are impossible to access otherwise.

From there, we can begin to restore the hollowed-out structure. Our experts will use a medicated filling substance to provide structure for the tooth and offer it much-needed strength. This will also help to promote proper healing and recovery. We finish the procedure by applying a dental crown over the tooth’s restored surface. The crown will prevent any fractures and breakages from occurring during the recovery process.

Great dentist office. I have been coming here for years! They have a great team of dentists, hygienists and office staff who treat you well. They care for your teeth and recommend only things that will help you keep your teeth lasting their longest. They do not try to sell you extras that you may not want or need. They book up fast but in an emergency they are there for me. Thanks Allen Dental!
