Navasota Dental Root Canal Therapy service
Root canal treatment is a treatment sequence for the infected pulp of a tooth during which the infected pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed, which results in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion.

When the pulp becomes infected or inflamed, root canal therapy is necessary. The inflammation or infection may be a result of:

  • Deep decay
  • A crack or chip in the tooth
  • Repeated dental procedures
  • Injury

When an inflamed or infected pulp is left untreated, it can cause pain and may develop into an abscess.

You may require root canal therapy if you experience any of the following symptoms:
  • Severe pain when chewing or biting
  • A chip or crack in the tooth
  • Long-lasting sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Swollen or tender gums
  • Deep decay
During root canal therapy, your dentist will first remove the infected or inflamed pulp. Next, they will clean, shape and fill the space. When you return for your second appointment, you will receive a crown or other restoration to protect the tooth and restore its full function.
