Signs You Need Root Canal Therapy
When the dental cavity is left untreated, it allows bacteria to enter the innermost pulp of your tooth, causing an infection. In addition, tooth trauma or injury can also let bacteria enter your tooth. In such cases, a dental filling is not enough — your tooth needs endodontic treatment to eliminate the infection. Our endodontist offers root canal therapy in Bellmead, TX, to treat the infection and eliminate the painful symptoms. Apart from pain, the following symptoms signify that you need immediate dental attention.
- Constant toothache, ranging from dull to sharp pain
- Heightened sensitivity to hot and cold stimuli
- Growing tenderness
- Swollen gum or facial tissues
- Discomfort when biting or eating
- Abscess near the tooth
- The tooth or surrounding gums turn darker
If you have these symptoms, we would recommend visiting our dental experts. We examine your mouth in detail to determine if you need a root canal procedure. With our endodontist’s effective treatment, the painful symptoms would be a thing of the past. Furthermore, the root canal saves your tooth, preventing further decay.

How Our Endodontist Performs Root Canal Therapy in Bellmead, TX
Our root canal procedure in Bellmead, TX, is fairly painless. First, we will conduct a dental exam to identify the affected tooth and check how far the infection has spread. In addition, we might conduct a digital dental x-ray to study the pulp tissues and how much they are affected. If you require endodontic treatment, we will make sure your comfort is not compromised during the procedure.
Before the root canal procedure, our team will inject a local anesthetic near the problematic tooth. After ensuring the area is completely numb and pain-free, the root canal procedure begins. Tell the dentist if you feel any discomfort, no matter how minor. Our dental specialist will drill an access hole and remove the damaged pulp tissue. Then, we will thoroughly clean and disinfect the canal of your root. The next step involves placing a dental material called gutta-percha in the canal and sealing it with a paste. But this is not where the procedure ends; the endodontist will close the access hole with the help of dental restoration. If your tooth is severely weakened or damaged, we might place a dental crown to keep it safe.
