Root Canal Therapy From Dripping Springs Family Smiles in Dripping Springs, TX
Root canal therapy is a form of treatment that may be recommended when bacteria enters into the pulp tissue of the tooth causing an infection and nerve pain. During the procedure, bacteria inside the tooth is removed using dental instruments and medicine. This form of treatment allows us to remove inflamed or infected pulp tissue, disinfect the tooth cavity, and prevent a tooth extraction from being needed. Saving your teeth is a top priority of ours at Dripping Springs Family Smiles.
If you have been told that you need a root canal, do not be nervous! We can make you as comfortable as possible while we provide you with the oral care you deserve.
Signs You May Need a Root Canal
There are several signs and symptoms that may indicate you need a root canal. Here are a few of the most common:
You may notice that there is significant pain in your tooth, particularly when you bite down on something.
You might notice some shooting or stabbing pains traveling through your tooth when you eat or drink something hot or cold.
One tooth might look a bit discolored when compared to the others.
You may notice swelling in the area, or a bump that develops on the outside of the gum tissue.
We will provide you with a complete examination when you come to the office, and we will let you know if we think you need a root canal.
