Root Canal Treatment  

Root Canal Treatment

Root canals often get a bad reputation, but we actually think of the treatment in a different light. If your dentist recommends a root canal treatment, that means your natural tooth can be saved instead of removing it! Belterra Dental offers root canal treatment to restore badly damaged or infected teeth. Our Austin root canal dentists will save and protect your natural smile, without the need for extraction or costly replacement teeth. If you’re experiencing a severe toothache or oral pain, make an appointment to find out if root canal treatment is right for you. We also offer same-day appointments for emergency situations. Please give us a call for dental emergencies.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a common endodontic procedure that treats a severely damaged, infected or abscessed tooth. The treatment involves removing and replacing the soft nerve tissues within the center of a tooth. These soft tissues are known as the pulp, which contain nerves and blood vessels that connect to the roots of your teeth. The pulp can become infected due to an untreated cavity or damage to the tooth. When the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, it will need to be removed to avoid permanent damage to the tooth’s structure and prevent the infection from spreading.

The dentists at Belterra Dental have specialized training in root canal treatment. Our office is equipped with modern technology to offer a relatively comfortable experience and fight the misconceptions that root canals are painful. In fact, root canal treatment will even help many patients find lasting relief to their oral pain. The procedure is less invasive, less painful, and less costly than having a tooth extracted and replacing it with a dental implant or dental bridge. We also provide dental sedation for root canal procedures so that you can get the care you need in a calm and relaxed state of mind.

Regular exams help spot trouble early to prevent bigger and more costly treatments later.

Medical and dental experts study the use of X-rays and set limits for their safety. Your dentist should take as few as possible. Sometimes dentists may recommend X-rays to diagnose a special problem. Advancements in technology means today’s digital X-rays release much less radiation and are safer than in the past.

Stores sell many whitening products, and you can get take-home gels and trays from your dentist, but neither is as strong as procedures done in a dental office

If you want to try an over-the-counter whitener, look for one with an ADA seal. Check with your dentist for advice before you buy, especially if you have dental work or dark stains. And don’t keep using them, or you could damage your teeth.

Caps and crowns cover problem teeth by surrounding them in a material that looks like a real tooth. They use the root and inside of the tooth as a base to build on, then attach with special cement.

Children, teens, and adults should all see the dentist for a regular checkup at least once every six months. Patients who are at a greater risk for oral cancer or gum disease may be required to see the dentist more than just twice a year. Your doctor will help determine how often you should visit the dentist for regular checkups.
