Root Canal Treatment in Midland, TX

Root canal treatment can help save and restore teeth in cases of infection or injury. If you are suffering from a severe toothache, you may benefit from a root canal. Visit your local Basin Dentistry office to learn more about how root canal treatment can save your teeth and give you the relief you need.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Also known as endodontic treatment, root canal treatment is necessary when the dental pulp inside the tooth becomes infected. The dental pulp consists of blood vessels, connective tissue, and nerves of the tooth. The sensitive material can die when it becomes injured or infected. This can happen due to a variety of causes, such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. If the infection is left untreated, it can cause severe pain or lead to an abscess.

Signs and Symptoms of Tooth Infection

Signs of a tooth infection can include pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness to touch and chewing, discoloration of the tooth, swelling, drainage, and tenderness in the lymph nodes as well as nearby bone and gum tissues. Sometimes, however, there are no symptoms.

If you or any family members suspect that your tooth may need endodontic treatment, contact our office now to schedule your appointment.

What to Expect During Root Canal Treatment

With modern techniques and anesthetics, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure. We offer sedation dentistry options to make your treatment as comfortable and stress-free as possible. To begin, our dentist will numb your tooth with a local anesthetic and administer sedation as necessary. Next, our dentist will gently remove the inflamed or infected pulp and carefully clean and shape the inside of the tooth to then fill and seal the space.

Once the tooth is cleaned and sealed, we will restore it with a crown. We use high-quality porcelain and same-day ceramic crowns to complete root canal treatment. Crowns are used to restore the strength, look and function of the tooth.
