Cracked and decayed teeth are typically treated using a tooth-colored filling or another type of replacement when they are detected in the early stages. If the decay spreads to the middle of the tooth (also known as the pulp), root canal therapy may be required to improve oral function and prevent extraction. A root canal is an endodontic service provided at Pipe Creek Dental Center to extract contaminated inner tooth tissue and seal off the damaged tooth to restore oral health. Dr. Carolyn Walker corrects abscessed or centrally deteriorating teeth using advanced root canal treatment and employs sedation techniques to further enhance patient comfort. When you suffer from a damaged or infected tooth, call our Pipe Creek, TX facility at your earliest convenience to discover the benefits of root canal treatment.

Root canal therapy administered by Dr. Walker at Pipe Creek Dental Center is a reliable method for removing the damaged pulp from an infected tooth and preventing additional oral health issues. The advantages of this procedure at our Pipe Creek, TX office include:

  • Averting tooth loss
  • Preventing infection from extending to other teeth and pulp
  • Saving the jawbone from degenerating
  • Bettering overall oral health
  • Improving the appearance of your teeth
  • Allowing normal oral function, such as regular chewing and swallowing

Our team in Pipe Creek, TX will perform a digital scan and dental assessment to determine if a molar root canal or other therapy is needed to soothe tooth pain and save your oral wellness. Once the tooth is numb and you are relaxed, a screen is set to protect the teeth and gums, and the diseased region will be reached through a small hole created at the top of the tooth. The infected pulp (the structure that consists of the nerve center and blood storage inside of the tooth) is then extracted before being carefully sanitized and sealed. Any tooth pain you were having before the treatment should start to fade when the root canal is done. Pain relievers can be taken to minimize any discomfort or inflammation that forms following your treatment. Your dentist will monitor your recovery at a checkup appointment a few weeks later. Teeth corrected with endodontic therapy are more prone to deterioration and typically need the security of a customized crown when they're fully recovered. A custom crown may then be created to return the function and visual appeal to your tooth.

Those ladies are angels. They have been a blessing to me. I never felt blessed by strangers now I can say I have. They are professional and caring. You are actually treated like a real person not just a patient.

My hygienist, Shay, was thorough and meticulous. She also took the time to explain things to me, which broadened my understanding of dental health. Dr. Walker has a welcoming and comforting presence. She was gentle and still did everything she needed to do. I highly recommend Pipe Creek Dental.
