Learn More About Root Canal Treatment
Contrary to popular belief, a root canal doesn’t have to hurt. This treatment is actually designed to help you feel better, especially when performed by Dr. Dickson and our talented dental team.
The soft inner part of a tooth is known as the pulp. When you have a cavity that goes untreated, or the tooth suffers injury, then eventually decay and infection can reach the pulp. The pulp contains the tooth’s root canals, nerves, blood vessels, and other tissue. Once the pulp becomes infected, you can experience a great deal of pain. Root canal therapy is usually required at this point.
Your smile will be in good hands at My Dentist in Plano. Dr. Dickson has performed many root canal procedures over the years. However, if for some reason he can’t do yours, he’ll bring in a trusted oral surgeon to take care of you right in our office.
Root canal treatment starts with making a tiny hole in the top of the tooth, through which we will clean out the infected pulp. Next, Dr. Dickson will disinfect the pulp chamber and carefully repair the canals inside the tooth.
A rubber-like material called gutta-percha will then be used to seal the root canals and help prevent reinfection. Finally, we’ll close the hole in your tooth with composite resin, the same material we use for tooth fillings.
Complete Your Restoration With a Crown
With the CAD/CAM technology of our in-house milling system, we can make a new crown for your tooth right in our office. You won’t have to make a second visit to have it placed! Your beautiful crown will help strengthen your repaired tooth and blend in naturally with the rest of your teeth. You could walk into our office with toothache pain, but walk out pain-free with a newly restored tooth!
